Most of the midseason series have drawn to a close for the season, leaving us to anticipate whatever offerings TV has in store for us this summer. And in the distance is the promise of a fresh season, full of new and returning series. NBC has a couple of dramas on the horizon, including Do No Harm and the J.J. Abrams/Eric Kripke created Revolution. We came across some art for the shows, which showcase some of the new faces we'll be seeing at the Peacock next season.
One of the series I'm most anticipating this Fall is Revolution, a drama that takes place in a world where all energy has ceased to exist. The trailer and clips offer the promise of something both interesting and emotionally compelling. I also noticed the look of the series, which seems to have a sort of saturated, colorful look to it. That comes through nicely in this photo for the series, which has the lead characters looking armed and determined.
Behind them is a ferris wheel that looks like it's seen better days and, in the absence of a functioning motor, sits idle and seems to be a good place on which ivy can cling and other green things can grow.
Another series that looks like it could be good is Do No Harm, which is on the schedule for Midseason 2013 and stars Steven Pasquale as a doctor dealing with a very aggressive alternate personality.
There's Pasquale, his hands up like a surgeon who's just scrubbed in. And on his hands, which are partially covering his face, is the reflection of "Ian," the "other guy" in his head. I'm not so sure that's a look you'd want to see on the face of a man who's about to operate on you.
And finally, there's Chicago Fire, a new drama headed to Wednesday nights this fall, which follows the firefighters, rescue squad and paramedics of a firehouse in Chicago. The photo below seems to focus entirely on firemen (keyword: men)…
They look like they came straight out of a fire, with smoke lingering over their shoulders and soot on their faces. In addition to the lack of female representation in the photo (there are women in the cast!), it's also worth noting that we only seem to be looking at firemen here. (Unless those hats and jackets are worn by the other types of employees as Chicago Firehouse 51.) I do like the emphasis on faces though. The close-up of these four guys leaves little room for anything else, but maybe that's an indication that, while fires and a dangerous occupation play their parts in this series, the focus will be on the characters.
