Storyline

Miles Daly (Chris O'Dowd) loves his family but hates his job. His job is no ordinary job and his employer is dangerous. Luckily his job leads him to an idea that could be a new beginning for him and his family. The bad news is he may need his current employer to begin his new venture which is a lot easier said than done. Let's just hope Amara (Lidia Porto) will be willing to go for it and that desperate Rick (Ray Romano) will be able to help him for more than just one reason Miles's life may be on the line for it. Rick is a down and out producer who is at the bottom of the heap in the movie business and may not know the people he is getting into business with. Written by Jimmy Dennis

Strong First Episode
14 August 2017 | by UnknownianSee all my reviews

This review is for the 1st episode only, named: "The Pitch": I was drawn into this show slowly, but solidly, to the point where I couldn't leave the TV to use the restroom, or get something to eat until the last bell had rung. It was truly the best series opener by another network other than HBO, I personally have ever viewed.

Chris O'Dowd has found a home here as the mobster with a lot more on the ball than your everyday hit-man. The rest of the cast is perfect, along with the cinematography, directing, and locations.

If this show keeps up this quality, and picks up an audience, I feel sorry for HBO come award season.

Put aside an hour and give this a look before it's off the schedule. I am extremely confident you will be very happy you did, and you'll be looking forward to the next episode as much as I was.
