For those not tuning into the new NFL Football season, which kicked off this week, thereâ€™s a plethora of new TV shows starting their season the week of September 13thÂ through theÂ 19th. This isnâ€™t the biggest week of Fall premieres, thatâ€™s next week, but still plenty to flip through when looking for something new.
The shows with pilot episodes premiering this week:
â€œOutlawâ€ – NBC – Wednesday, September 15 at 10pm Eastern
With â€œLaw & Orderâ€ off the airwaves, this NBC drama looks to fill its shoes. Justice Cyrus Garza (Jimmy Smits) has left his Supreme Court post after finding too many flaws in the legal system. He starts a private practice, intent on representing the â€˜little guy.â€™ Stars acting alongside Smits include Carly Pope, David Ramsey, and Jesse Bradford.
â€œBoardwalk Empireâ€ – HBO – Sunday, September 19 at 8pm Eastern
From the mind of Martin Scorcese comes â€œBoardwalk Empire,â€ a show that delves into the roots of organized crime in 1920 Atlantic City. Prohibition has just begun, and a corrupted politician Enoch â€œNuckyâ€ Thompson (Steve Buscemi) is responsible for the flow of illegal booze. In the process of getting deeper into a life of crime, he falls for a local housewife, Margaret (Kelly Macdonald), and acts as mentor to Jimmy Darmondy (Michael Pitt). Carictures of real mob bosses – at their beginnings – pepper this drama as well.
Along with the brand-new shows come some favorites, not all at their regular day and time.
