So, it's not too early to to take a look at the mid season, is it? Ripper Street by BBC definitely looks interesting. The series is said to be released on BBC America in January 2013 (initially, the launch date was supposed to be sometime this Fall). And of course it's about Jack the Ripper, as the title suggests.
The series, created by “Mistresses” writer Richard Warlow, features a dynamic cast starring Matthew Macfadyen (“MI-5,” “Pride and Prejudice”), Jerome Flynn (“Game of Thrones”), Adam Rothenberg (“Alcatraz”), Myanna Buring (“The Twilight Saga,” “White Heat”) and David Dawson (“Luther,” “Secret Diary of a Call Girl”).
Red Widow, a show about "the mob mom". I'm worried that because it's gonna be on ABC, it will be soft and soapy, but we'll see. I don't know anyone from cast, but I've read there will be a character named Andrei Petrova which is hilarious because it's male first name and female last name. So, not only Dexter creators can't get Slavic names right. Writers, focus!
One of the most ridiculous shows must be CWs The Cult, about a TV program that kidnaps people.
