It´s the fall season, and a lot of new series are on the way. We already reviewed premiere of 2 Broke Girls, and upcoming premiere of How to be a gentleman, and the premiere of Unforgettable and breakout premiere of New Girl. Up All Night, Free Agents and Whitney are other shows that already started, and while Person of Interest premiere is the best looking sci-fi mistery drama thingy, CBS is also bringing A Gifted Man the premiere tonight. And although friday´s usually the toughest night to get ratings, CBS is commited to the idea of bringing a good lineup starting with A Gifted Man, then CSI NY and closing with Blue Bloods. I would´ve moved the premiere after CSI to get some help with the lead in for premiere, and then swap them, but I really hope this one sticks. It was good, and I liked it more than I expected to.
And having Julie Benz tomorrow back on my TV weekly is always a good call! And the Dexter connection is also seeing Margo Martindale playing the assistant!
What is A Gifted Man About? Plot Synopsis
A GIFTED MAN is a drama about a brilliant, charismatic surgeon whose life changes forever when his deceased ex-wife begins teaching him the meaning of life from the “hereafter.” Michael Holt (Patrick Wilson) is an exceptional doctor who lives a materialistic life of luxury thanks to his work-obsessed career and powerful and wealthy patients; however, Michael’s ordered world is rocked when his ex-wife, Anna (Jennifer Ehle), an idealistic free-clinic doctor and the love of his life, mysteriously appears to him. Michael’s off-beat sister, Christina (Julie Benz), a single mom to her teenaged son, Milo (Liam Aiken), is thrilled that Anna’s back in her brother’s life, even as an “illusion,” because Michael was always a better person with her. Curious about Michael’s sudden change in behavior is his efficient assistant, Rita (Margo Martindale). When Anna asks Michael to go to her clinic to help keep it running, he meets Autumn (Afton Williamson), a volunteer carrying on Anna’s work with the underprivileged. Touched by those in need and accepting of Anna’s compassionate “presence,” Michael’s attitude toward serving the rich and poor is turned upside down, and he begins to see that there’s room in his life for everyone. Academy Award nominee Susannah Grant (“Erin Brockovich”), Academy Award winner Jonathan Demme (“The Silence of the Lambs”), Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly and Neal Baer (“ER”) are executive producers for CBS Television Studios.
