    Boomtown on NBC - New Drama



    From the official site:

    THE PILOT
    10pm 09/29/02 ALL NEW!


    IN THE SERIES PREMIERE THIS STYLISH ENSEMBLE DRAMA TELLS THE STREET-LEVEL STORY OF THE CITY OF ANGELS -- When a teenaged girl is killed during a suspected drive-by shooting, the story is revealed as it is experienced by the city's competing cops, paramedics, beat reporters and city officials. Detective Joel Stevens (Donnie Wahlberg) and his partner Bobby "Fearless" Smith (Mykelti Williamson) lead the investigation, while veteran officer Ray Hechler (Gary Basaraba) and his partner Tom Turcotte (Jason Gedrick) pursue a young African-American suspect (guest star Arlen Escarpeta, "American Dreams"). Meanwhile, politically savvy Deputy D.A. David McNorris (Neal McDonough) takes advantage of the tragedy to get some press for himself. Likewise, an ambitious reporter, Andrea Little (Nina Garbiras), tries to learn and leak the victim's identity. TV-14

    When I first saw the promos, this is one I was looking forward to, but it seems that the more times I see the ad, the less I want to watch the show...weird.
    I'm sure we will check it out though.

    I like Jason Gedrick, he was Neil Avadon in the original "Murder One".
    He was then in another show called Falcone ( I think) which was cancelled pretty early into it's run.
    Donnie Wahlberg is also in the show. He was in a show with Ed O'Neill, set in New York, I think it was called Big Apple (my memory is lousy these days.
    That show was also cancelled after a couple of episodes.

    My point is that both these guys could probably use a successful show so I'm hoping it's good from that point of view.

    Ooooh! I think this looks really interesting. Isn't this the show where the situation is shown through different points of view in each episode?

    I thought it was alright. It's pretty darn strange though.

    I didn't watch it in the end as it clashed with The Practice.
    I wish I had as The Practice was pretty lame.

    I started watching it, then switched to the practice. I think I missed the last few eps of the practice last year as I was completely lost!!
    Boom town had me falling asleep. I just didn't like it
