New PI show is no “Burn Notice” but it might make us laugh more
Ok, so I recently heard about this new private investigator show on the FX Network called “Terriers”. When I first heard about it I immediately thought Burn Notice with a lot more humor without the slick Miami style. After hitting up FX Network’s show page for their new series I noticed a familiar face, Donal Logue, from that great movie The Tao of Steve back in the early 2000′s in which he portrayed a lazy out of work guy who had the mentality of “letting women come to you” without any effort on his part. A Tao superpower of some sense. A great actor none the less, awesome on screen. Let’s hope for the same in Terriers.
I’ve yet to see an episode of this new series that focuses on the pair of unlicensed PIs who use improvisational techniques to land and solve their cases. I’m interested in checking out this new series, and hopefully looking forward to a laugh or two.
Here’s what the FX Network has to say about their new show:
Terriers from Creator/Executive Producer Ted Griffin (Ocean’s Eleven, Matchstick Men) and Executive Producer Shawn Ryan (The Shield), is a comedic drama starring Donal Logue (The Tao of Steve) and Michael Raymond-James (True Blood). It centers on “Hank Dolworth” (Logue), an ex-cop, who partners with his best friend “Britt Pollack” (Raymond-James) in an unlicensed private investigation business.
Comedic, edgy, original, a show about high stakes in the face of low expectations, Terriers explores what it’s like in today’s America to be “too small to fail.” Co-stars include Laura Allen (Dirt) as “Katie,” Britt’s girlfriend; Rockmond Dunbar (Prison Break) as “Detective Mark Gustafson,” former colleague of Hank; and Jamie Denbo (Weeds) as “Maggie Lefferts,” Hank’s attorney. Craig Brewer (Hustle and Flow, The Shield) directed the pilot episode. Terriers is produced by Fox 21.
Ryan Garrahy is a state licensed private investigator specializing in surveillance, background checks, locating individuals and workplace investigations. He is the owner & principal investigator for Orange Investigations.
