I read something recently (I'll see if I can't find it...) that said it would premier this summer.

To be honest, sounds like something that would be on Lifetime. Well, maybe not, it's not based on a true story about a 15 year old having a baby or some woman being murdered. Actually, I bet it will have all of that and more.

Yeah, and I'm just sure Oklahoma City is going to be portrayed in the most wonderful light....

Some of you obviously haven't read too much about it. It is created by and written by a woman from Oklahoma, who loves Oklahoma. While I am sure it will have some stereotypical things in it, I will be surprised if it is negative towards Oklahoma City.

brian,

I have no doubt that the person who created the series has good motivations. Its the translation to the actual TV screen that usually gets Oklahoma portrayed badly.

Maybe I'm wrong.

Episode one; "Our heroine discovers that Jim Inhofe's brain has been stolen by SUV driving zombie soccer moms from Edmond. She must enlist the aid of mranderson who is telepathically linked to Inhofe due to their being seperated at birth."

Thanks for the compliment. That means a lot since Inhoffe has been a republican in excellent standing for longer than many on this board have been alive.

Must be a really low bar of excellence...

So...you are basically giving me carte blanche to compare you to any Republican in "excellent standing" and you'll consider it a compliment?

Hey, although mranderson and I have had our differences on some issues, I will make no apologies for being a Republican and admire the fact that there are some Republicans who will stand for their principles despite media and political pressure. Tactics aside, Inhofe is willing to stand in the face of the global warming hysteria mongers and scream that the emperor has no clothes. Surely the media won't (although the NY Times pretty much did last week, to my amazement).

As far as Inhofe goes, I understand that his tactics are considered harsh, contrarian, even abrasive, but in many cases you have no choice but to be that way to be heard at all. Someone has to speak out while it's still legal to speak out, because I guarantee you the right of free speech has never been in greater peril than it is right now - particularly under the "Environmentalism" agenda.

If we want to discuss this kind of stuff, let me respectfully suggest that we move it to a different board. Political discussions aren't relevant to a thread about a new cop TV drama...I've vented my spleen on the global warming idiocy in another thread, so don't know if there's really fresh ground to cultivate there.

Sooner, merely trying to inject a little humor. My apologies if you were offended.

Heavens, not at all!! I readily admit that sometimes the subtley of some humor doesn't get past the concrete between my ears. No problem at all.

BTW, I love the Calvin avatar. That's a comic strip I really miss.

Well put, Sooner. I do not make apologies for being republican either. Afterall, I am in good company. Plus, just like a lot of other people have disagreed with over the course of history, I take a lot of flack. I just hope I am among the ones who later people admit were correct. It has happened before with the ones who took the flack, and will many times more over the rest of time.

Personally, I would rather have an Inhofe than a washed up former Vice President with a smirk on his face.

Obviously, you missed this part of soonerdave's comments...

In TV, creators have much more control over the final product than a screenwriter of a movie does. Usually they are the showrunner, which I believe is the case here.



To be honest, sounds like something that would be on Lifetime. Well, maybe not, it's not based on a true story about a 15 year old having a baby or some woman being murdered. Actually, I bet it will have all of that and more.

It's being developed as a companion to TNT's cable-sized hit "The Closer", which stars Kiera Sedgwick and is very highly regarded by critics, which is a good sign for the quality of this show, because they are surely aiming for the same kind of praise. The Closer, and Sedgwick in particular get a lot of press.
