Scoundrels Preview: New ABC Drama Series

This Sunday night, ABC is set to premiere their new drama series Scoundrels, which follows a crime family as they attempt to straighten out their lives and break old habits.

According to ABC’s series description (below), Scoundrels follows the West family as they try to clean up their acts after Wolf West lands himself in prison, leaving his wife and kids to fend for themselves for four years. Below is the full synopsis and further down are a couple of clips from the premiere.

There are two rules that the West family has always lived by: Do not invade people's homes, at least not when they're in them, and never, ever use violence -- unless there is no other option. When Wolf West (David James Elliott) is sentenced to a four-year prison term instead of the expected four months, Cheryl West (Virginia Madsen) realizes she's going to be a single mom for the next few years. With the family coming apart at the seams, Cheryl decides that it's time for them to get out of the family business altogether. However it'll prove a challenging task for every member of the family, since a life of crime is all they've known.Scoundrels also stars Patrick John Flueger as Logan West/Calvin "Cal" West, Leven Rambin as Heather West, Vanessa Marano as Hope West and Carlos Bernard as Sergeant Mack.Scoundrels is based on a New Zealand series entitled Outrageous Fortune. Lyn Greene & Richard Levine (Nip/Tuck) and Francie Calfo serve as executive producers. John Barnett, whose company, South Pacific Pictures, produces the New Zealand series, will also be an executive producer. Co-executive producers will include Michael Larkin, Michael Goldstein, Bruce Cervi and John Lansing.

Scoundrels premieres Sunday, June 20, 9:00-10:00 p.m., ET.
