Official premiere date set for Drive

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 19th 2007 5:29PM
driveFox is promoting the hell out of Tim Minear's new action series, Drive. And now we finally have an official launch date (the folks over at Drivefans.com already knew this). According to the official website, there will be a 2-night, 3-hour premiere on Sunday, April 15th at 8 pm and Monday, April 16th at 8 pm. According to The Futon Critic, the permanent time slot for Drive is on Mondays at 8 pm.

While I have high hopes for Drive because A) it's being produced by Tim Minear and B) it stars Nathan Fillion, I also worry that it will be like many of Minear's other great shows that were canceled. Ahem... Firefly. While I didn't see it, I hear great things about The Inside, which Fox canceled in 2005. He was a "consulting producer" on Standoff but I'm not going to hold that against him. In fact, Minear has had a project on television every year since 1999.

erroneous_nick: The thing about FOX canceling so many good shows... it's mostly because they put more of those high quality shows on the air, hoping to find an audience. It's tough to blame them for canceling a low-rated show.

They put out Firefly and the Inside and Arrested Development and Andy Richter Controls the Universe and all sorts of shows that never would've seen the light of day on another broadcast network. It's frustrating, but without FOX you never see those shows at all.

After being burned many times before, I keep saying I won't get drawn into another FOX show only to have it pulled out from under me. Unfortunately I'm a very weak man and I'll be sitting there watching this one just like all the others (I still have a delusional hope that Firefly will see a screen again, so that should prove how stupid I can be).

I guess I'm just Charlie Brown to FOX's Lucy Van Pelt. Damned footballs!!
