New NBC Shows: "Life"
New drama about a cop (Damien Lewis) who's wrongly imprisoned and adopts a Zen-like approach to capture criminals after he's released. Will air after "The Bionic Woman," Wednesdays at 10 p.m.
"Life" is a new drama about a detective who is given a second chance.
Damian Lewis ("Band of Brothers") stars as complex, offbeat Detective Charlie Crews, who returns to the force after years in prison, thanks to close friend and attorney Constance Griffiths (Melissa Sagemiller, "Sleeper Cell"), after serving time for a crime he didn't commit.
Bottom line: Can a cop drama succeed airing after a dark "Bionic" update in the same timeslot where "Kidnapped" failed?
