Fall Preview: BIG SHOTS

September 27, 2007 by  


Premiere date: Thursday, September 27, 2007
Airs: Thursdays @ 10pm on ABC

The lines between boardroom and bedroom blur in Big Shots, the story of four friends who are at the top of their game… until the women in their lives enter the room. These competitive but dysfunctional New York CEOs take refuge in their friendship, discussing business, confiding secrets, seeking advice and supporting one another through life’s twists and turns.

James Walker (Michael Vartan, Alias) is the group’s moral center, but his professional life almost crumbles in an instant, thanks to a corporate shakeup at AmeriMart Industries. However, his work woes pale in comparison to what he later learns about his wife. Brody Johns (Christopher Titus, Titus) is Senior Vice President of Alpha Crisis Management. Despite his professional success, his wife will be judging him by how magnificently he can put together her birthday party. Karl Mixworthy (Joshua Malina, The West Wing) is the sweet yet always nervous CEO of a large pharmaceutical company. He has a loving wife – and a cunning mistress who is beginning to monopolize whatever free time he can muster. And Duncan Collinsworth (Dylan McDermott, The Practice) is the sexy, divorced CEO of Reveal Cosmetics. Having built his company into the industry leader, he now finds his personal life threatened by rumor of a personal indiscretion – which is actually a fact – that could turn his world upside down.

I wanted to like this one, I really did. The idea of seeing Michael Vartan back on TV brought me no small amount of joy…that is until I watched the pilot. This male Sex and the City wannabe is too neat and too clean – and that’s not a good thing. The actors aren’t bad but the stories just aren’t realistic. Former Veronica Mars showrunner, Rob Thomas has taken the helm and my sources tell me that he has already re-written a bunch of episodes, so I’m not fully ready to give up on this one yet. Let’s see if Rob can pull out a little VM magic on these not so big shots.

    Everyone has their own take on this show and to each his own I guess, but since this show has begun I could care less about any other show that’s on in the 10 p.m. time zone. Any show that can lure me away from ‘E.R.’ and ‘Without a Trace’ says alot for me. Vartan, McDermott, Titus, Malina, and Long (as well as the rest of the cast and crew) are truly a team in progress and the chemistry between Vartan and Long (his now love interest) is amazing to watch. I hope this show manages to stay on at least a little while longer, because the comedy/drama here is just what I was looking for.
