Comments Off on BACKSTROM Exclusive Clip: Backstrom and Amy Go Head-to-Head Over His ‘Justified’ Shooting

backstrom-smallBACKSTROM’s title character is in hot water.

While viewers know that Backstrom shot a suspect (and himself) in the show’s pilot, his claim that it was a justified shooting — and that Visser shot him — is being investigated by the Civilian Oversight Committee…led by Backstrom’s ex-fiancee, Amy (Sarah Chalke).

When the two go head-to-head in this exclusive clip from Thursday’s episode, “I Am A Bird Now,” Backstrom, originally, tries to get out of the situation by going over his police statement — which Amy rebuffs — and then he attempts sarcasm. But when Amy emphasizes how serious this could be, Backstrom’s already questionable health takes a turn.

Take a look at what goes down in Thursday’s opening scene…

BACKSTROM Pilot Recap: ‘Dragon Slayer’

Comments Off on BACKSTROM Pilot Recap: ‘Dragon Slayer’

Hello BACKSTROM Viewers!

What did you think of this pilot episode? It immediately began by showing Portland Detective Everett Backstrom (Rainn Wilson) visiting Dr. Deb, and we learn (amongst various racial allusions from Backstrom) that the detective has been relegated to traffic duty for a few years because of his health. Deb warns him of the dangers of his physical eating and drinking habits and gives him an unusual prescription: make a friend within a week.

They are interrupted by Officer Moto, who takes Backstrom to a crime scene being worked by Portland’s newly formed Special Crimes Unit, including Nicole Gravely (Genevieve Angelson) and John Almond (Dennis Haysbert) and Forensics Peter Neidermeyer (Kristopher Polaha).

Comments Off on BACKSTROM: Rainn Wilson on Being Drawn to ‘Quirky, Off-Beat’ Characters

backstrom-tinyBACKSTROM has been in the works for several years (it was initially developed as a pilot for CBS’ 2013-2014 television season), and more than a year after Fox gave the show a 13-episode pickup, it’ll make its debut.

Reporters were invited up to the show’s Vancouver set late last year, and Rainn Wilson spoke with a small group about getting involved with the series. Initially, he relayed (and as you can see in the video below), he thought his agents were “insane” when they told him to the read the pilot (about an offensive, yet brilliant detective) as he was ending his run on THE OFFICE…and yet he “really fell in love with the character.”

Watch the video for more from Wilson, including what he thinks Backstrom would think of THE OFFICE’s Dwight, getting to play a cop, and more…

Comments Off on BACKSTROM: Rainn Wilson Previews His New Fox Drama

backstrom-tiny If you are an aspiring TV writer, can I recommend first writing a novel, getting it published, and then sending it to Hart Hanson and his team with the hope he will adapt it to a TV show? This Thursday, January 22nd, marks the premiere of BACKSTROM, Hanson’s third “pulled from the bookshelves” series for Fox. The BONES and THE FINDER creator has developed a new show that pulls together a ragtag group of people setting out to make the world a little bit better — primarily by catching murderers.

Fox describes the show’s main and titular character, Everett Backstrom, as “an unhealthy, offensive, irascible — albeit brilliant — detective” played by Rainn Wilson. BACKSTROM’s 13 episode order has been filmed, and Fox sent the pilot and three additional episodes to the press. Additionally, Wilson recently participated in a conference call with several press outlets. Read on to find out what Wilson thinks are Backstrom’s best and worst qualities, how the show fits in the current landscape of society, and the difference between shooting a 60 minute procedural and a 30 minute sitcom…

Comments Off on BACKSTROM: ENLISTED’s Angelique Cabral to Guest Star

The upcoming Fox procedural BACKSTROM has nabbed yet another guest star: ENLISTED’s Angelique Cabral!

A rep for the show has confirmed that Cabral will play Samantha Orland, a Fire Bureau investigator in the upcoming episode which focuses on a serial arsonist, and also co-guest stars WAREHOUSE 13’s Eddie McClintock. (McClintock will play a firefighter/Backstrom’s childhood bully.)

Are you excited to see Cabral on BACKSTROM?
