Ah, January. Shows we’ve been missing (Justified!) return and new shows strut their stuff.
For 2013, Cinemax is bringing us Banshee:
Antony Starr stars as an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Pa. Also starring Ivana Milicevic, Ulrich Thomsen, Frankie Faison, Hoon Lee, Rus Blackwell and Matt Servitto.
And then there’s The Following on Fox, which we got a chance to preview and discuss at ComicCon.
FX brings us the Cold War drama The Americans:
NBC joins the party, too, with Deception, about a cop who goes undercover to solve her childhood friend’s murder.
Also from NBC, Do No Harm, a Jekyll-and-Hyde story about a surgeon (Steven Pasquale) with a secondary personality who is sort of like an evil twin.
ABC is jumping into the mix with a conspiracy theory drama starring Anthony Edwards called Zero Hour. Edwards plays the publisher of a magazine for skeptics. When his wife is abducted, he, his buddies, and the FBI attempt to crack various conspiracies in order to get his wife back.
So, what do you think? Will you watch any of these new shows, or any we’ve missed? What old favorites are you desperately waiting for to return?
