Oh please let this get picked up!!! Ed Westwick is my favorite, and a great actor at that!
I love Ed Westwick but not excited about Erika. This does not seem like her kind of role at all.
Swimfan? Traffic? The FBI agent she played in a Law and Order SVU episode?
I’m kind of with you on this one. Westwick is reason enough to watch anything but Erika, not so much. I know people think she work is great but I’m just not overly impressed with what I’ve seen her in.
I thought this was a serialized show about trying to catch a pair of serial killers but the press releases keep calling it a “true crime procedural”.
BEST NEWS EVER! Ed is amazing and I missed him on TV! THIS sounds a great deal to me. So excited!!!
OMG I’m so happy, I missed Ed so much from my screen! I wasn’t interested in this series before, but now I’ll def check it out!
I think I only watch on movie with him outside of his GG role and still the whole time CB ringed in my head.
Really glad the GG crew is getting back on tv, will surely check it out. I see this air on Tuesdays, maybe 10pm.
YES. This is such a good news, I love Ed, he’s a quite talented actor and it’d be great to see him in more things, missed his acting. Plus this sounds like my kind of show. Oh and Taissa <33 Hope it gets picked up!
I’ve been interested in this pilot since I read the synopsis of it, but now with Ed and Erika both involved and need it picked up STAT!
