The Inside Premieres Tonight on FOX + ....

Tonight is the premiere of a new series on FOX, called The Inside. I've been anxiously awaiting this show for some time. Here's a brief synopsis, courtesy of TV Tome: With very little field experience, rookie F.B.I. Agent Rebecca Locke will become part of a sinister and unsavory world when she is recruited to join the Bureau's Los Angeles Violent Crimes Unit as a new profiler. A special division headed by Supervisory Special Agent Virgil "Web" Webster that is devoted to investigating the darkest and most heinous crimes committed by human beings.

Unbeknownst to Rebecca, her traumatic past that she has struggled to bury and keep hidden from others is the sole reason why Web has recruited her. That what had tormented Rebecca so long ago will give her a unique insight and place her in a specific mindset to help her tackle these cases. This is also the case with her new colleagues as Web knows each of their past histories and secrets. It remains unclear the lengths that he is willing to go with his agents in order to successfully solve a crime.

Trust me, it LOOKS a lot better than it sounds. The show has a great look to it. Let's hope it's as good as it looks. I already know Adam Baldwin (AKA Special Agent Danny Love) is lookin' good. He always is. ROWR!

I'm also anxiously awaiting another show, also on the FOX channel: Prison Break. It stars two of my favorite slabs-o-eyecandy: Dominic Purcell (OMG that man is H-O-T!) and relative newcomer Wentworth Miller. The show's premise is as follows:

Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) is a desperate man in a desperate situation. His brother, Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell), is on death row and scheduled to die in a few months for a murder Michael is convinced Lincoln did not commit. With no other options and time winding down, Michael holds up a bank to get himself incarcerated alongside his brother in Fox River State Penitentiary. Once he's inside, we learn that Michael – a structural engineer with the blueprints for the prison – has hatched an elaborate plan to break Lincoln out and prove his innocence.

Senior correctional officer Bellick offers some prison wisdom as Michael arrives. Then, with the help of his cellmate, Sucre (Amaury Nolasco, Mr. 3000), Michael begins to align himself with a disparate group of prisoners, including former mob boss John Abruzzi and Charles Westmoreland, a man some believe to be the infamous skyjacker D.B. Cooper. On the outside Michael has only one ally, his defense attorney and longtime friend, Veronica Donovan (Robin Tunney) – who is Lincoln's former girlfriend.

Meanwhile, Lincoln's 15-year-old son, LJ, is now adrift without his Uncle Michael's positive influence. Rounding out the cast are Sarah Wayne Callies as prison doctor Sara Tancredi, whom Michael ends up visiting more often than he should, and Stacy Keach as the powerful Warden Pope, who forges a close, almost father-son relationship with the new convict. This intriguing new series promises to reveal additional pieces of the puzzle each week as Michael carries out his daring plan to mastermind the ultimate Prison Break – and solve the far-reaching national-scale conspiracy that landed him there in the first place.

Prison Break is slated for a September 2005 premiere.
