Do you often find yourself in tears, falling in love or feeling the action when watching TV dramas? Do you feel that you can’t live without watching them every day of the or at least a few times each week?
You have a reason to rejoice as new TV dramas are set to be launched during this first quarter of 2013.
First up, The Carrie Diaries premiers on January 14. Considered a prequel to Sex and the City, 16-year-old AnnaSophia Robb plays the lead role. The series starts in a 1984 setting with Carrie dealing with the loss of her mom and her high school life in suburban Connecticut. Then came the opportunity to work as an intern in a law firm in Manhattan, New York where the youngster became in awe of her new environment and many things about it.
The Following is another new show to watch out for. Airing on January 21, this crime series stars Kevin Bacon who is trying out the small screen for the first time. In this drama, Kevin plays the role of Ryan Hardy, a former federal agent who was called back to work. Apparently, the serial killer he helped catch and who was sentenced to death was able to escape from prison. So expect a lot of action from Kevin Bacon here.
In February, Monday Mornings will launch on TNT. Another show about the lives of doctors so it should be interesting not only for medical people but also for those who are plain movie and TV fans. Ally McBeal producer David Kelley is behind this project which stars Alfred Molina, Ving Rhames and Jamie Bamber playing as doctors. It’s being adapted from a book written by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, a medical correspondent of CNN.
March will see the airing of A&E’s Bates Motel. This one is for the thrill seekers. Norman Bates is the main character, a mama’s boy who often gets into trouble. Freddie Highmore of the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory film plays Norman while Vera Farmiga plays her mom. Some members of the production team came from the popular “Lost” and “Friday Night Lights” series.
