Series debut: The Line

The Line

Debuts
Monday, March 16 at 10 p.m. ET on The Movie Network (but you can watch the first two episodes right now online).

Regularly airs
Mondays at 10 p.m. ET

Premise
The Movie Network describes it this way: “The Line follows a collection of cops, criminals and everybody in between as they intersect then fall with the rhythms of a combustible suburban wasteland (Scarborough).  At the centre of this world are Max and Donny, two cops who are as morally ambiguous as the criminals they pursue. Max has lost interest in conventional police work and has developed his own methods for dealing with the criminals he’s hell bent on destroying.  Donny has almost been completely torn apart by the job, yet he remains optimistic in the face of his crumbling life.”

Primary cast and crew
Ron White (Tom Stone, Unforgiven) is Max, the more stable half of the team of the detectives at the centre of this cop drama, but that’s not saying much.

Daniel Kash (Lucky Number Slevin, The Dresden Files) is Donny. He might have cared once, but he’s lost, and not “lost” as is he’s one of the bad guys. He’s just lost.

Sharon Lawrence (NYPD Blue, Privileged) is Jayne, a burned out legal-aid lawyer and Max’s squeeze.

Cle Bennett (Instant Star, Da Kink in My Hair) is Carlos, a dealer just out of prison with anxiety issues and a kid he can’t see.

George F. Walker and Dani Romain (This Is Wonderland) are creators, writers and exec producers.

Linda Hamilton (Terminator: Salvation, Thief) is Carol, a grifter.

Ed Asner (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip) is Jayne’s father.

Buzz buzz
With a cast and creative team like this…

But what do I know anyway? After having watched the first two episodes I predict…
So much talent — from the execs Walker and Romain to actors Kash and White and Lawrence and Hamilton and Asner. But what? Was it just my mood? Or is it that this cops-as-morally-ambiguous-as-the-criminals drama is trying hard to hit the heights of The Wire without earning it? I should watch more episodes to see if the material rises to the skill level of this fine cast and crew. I should.
