On May 17, Fox announced its 2007-08 fall schedule. The cop drama, "K-Ville", set and shot in New Orleans is a part of the fall lineup. Fox also revealed that "K-Ville" might actually premiere in late August. If that happens, local production could begin as early as mid-June. It's slated to air Mondays at 9 p.m. EST (just after "Prison Break").
I, of course, want to see Tawny Cypress back in prime time as soon as possible. I'm not sure if this show's going to last, though. In fact, I'm pretty concerned.
It's also slated to air Mondays at 9 p.m. EST, just after "Prison Break". First of all, this means I might accidentally catch the last few moments of "Prison Break". Shudder. Second, "K-Ville" airs at the same time as both "Heroes" and "Monday Night Football". I'm already used to either recording "Heroes" for later viewing or watching it on http://www.nbc.com/. I'm not sure if I can juggle another Monday night drama. I'm sorry Tawny, but love has its limits.
Finally, I've got to admit that the show just doesn't sound all that interesting. A writing staff has yet to be hired. Apparently, writer-producer Jonathan Lisco is unaware of the fact that I'm available.
That gross oversight aside, Mr. Lisco has stated that "K-Ville" is "basically a cop show about two unlikely cops teamed together. Highly procedural, highly episodic." What this leaves is a standard cop drama whose hook is that it's set in New Orleans. Keep in mind, though, that Lisco has already said that he wants to avoid being overly depressing or falling into cliches about the corruption of the NOPD. I hope I'm wrong, but that sounds like a pretty boring hour of television.
So, I'm still holding out hope for CSI: New Orleans . . . starring Tawny Cypress
