New & Returning TV March 2010

This is what I am looking forward to on TV this month.

Justified (New Series Premiere)

March 16

Timothy Olyphant plays the lead role of Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens. Givens is a modern-day 19th century-style lawman, enforcing his brand of justice in a way that puts a target on his back with criminals and places him at odds with his bosses in the Marshal service. Justified was developed by Graham Yost (Boomtown, Speed) and is based on the popular character featured in several books and short stories by famed novelist Elmore Leonard. Yost wrote the pilot and will serve as Executive Producer/Showrunner of the series. Leonard is Executive Producer, along with Sarah Timberman (Kidnapped), Carl Beverly (Kidnapped) and Michael Dinner (Karen Sisco), who directed the pilot episode. Produced by Sony Pictures Television and FX Productions. FX has ordered 13 episodes of the series, which is shot in Los Angeles.

Cast Erica Tazel as Rachel Brooks, Jacob Pitts as Tim Gutterson, Joelle Carter as Ava Crowder, Natalie Zea as Winona Givens, Nick Searcy as Art Mullen, Raymond Berry as Arlo Givens, Timothy Olyphant as Raylan Givens, Walton Goggins as Boyd Crowder.

Parenthood (New Series Premiere)

We are introduced to the very unique Braveman family. Single mom Sarah, and her two kids Amber and Drew, are moving back home with Sarah’s parents Zeek and Camille. Julia, Sarah’s sister and complete opposite is a successful attorney trying to do both, work and motherhood, alongside her stay-at-home husband, Joel. Sarah’s younger brother, Crosby is a commitment-phobe who must accept adult responsabilities when his old flame Jasmine shows up with a kid. Meanwhile, the older sibling of the Bravemans, Adam, his wife Kristina and their teenage daughter Haddie learn that their little boy, Max has Asperger’s Syndrome. Although each sibling has its own problems, this reunion may be the push they needed to help each other with the challenges that every family faces while raising children and starting over.

Saving Grace (4th season premiere)

March 29

This is one of my favorite series Holly is an awsome actress. Pity this is said to be the last season.

Academy Award winner Holly Hunter stars in this TNT drama series about a police detective with an emotional crisis living in Oklahoma City. A respected officer, Grace Hanadarko can’t seem to run her personal life with the same sort of finesse she has in the field. Can an unlikely divine stranger… More influence her to get her life back on track? In 2008 the series was nominated for a Saturn Award for “Best Syndicated/Cable Television Series” and actress Holly Hunter was nominated for a Saturn Award for “Best Actress on Television” for her role as Grace Hanadarko. In 2008 Holly Hunter was nominated for an Emmy for “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series” for her role as Grace. She was also nominated for a Golden Globe for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama” and was nominated for a Screen Actor’s Guild Award for “Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series”.

Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid is the title

Vampire Diaries (Back After Hiatus)

Thursday, March 11

In the meantime, the main Vampire Diaries cast members gathered this weekend as part of a nationwide mall tour and answered questions from fans in Los Angeles. TV Guide Magazine was on hand for the event.

Asked what’s in store for Elena and Stefan, Paul Wesley replied:

There will always be conflict… Her mortality is a huge thing. What if she wants to turn? But for now they’re going to [be] a little less sort of serious and more like, ‘Let’s be a normal couple. Let’s laugh and do stuff that normal humans do.’

But for how long can Stefan and Elena be happy when Damon is around? A bored, aimless Damon (due to the news about Katherine), no less?

“Damon having idle time, not having a mission, is a very, very problematic situation,” Ian Somerhalder said. “I think there are more shenanigans [to come].”

Echoed Nina Dobrev: “I think his presence always has an effect on their relationship, even if he doesn’t do anything… You’re definitely going to see a Damon, Elena, Stefan trio, the three musketeers.”

We’re also gonna see at least one more flashback to 1864 before the season concludes.
