Macy's Family Man picked up by TNT
The quirky drama would focus on Macy's character, an upstanding citizen who also happens to be the leader of a group of burglars. The plot is revealed in "flash forward" mode with Macy's character, Todd Becker, imprisoned in the future. Along with his cohorts, Becker steals from major corporations and gives to charity. Ah, that's nice.
Macy and co-writer Steven Schachter previously worked on Door to Door and The Wool Cap for TNT. Schachter will direct the pilot for Family Man.
Another pilot, an untitled drama from Steven Bochco starring Jane Kaczmarek and Mark-Paul Gosselaar was also greenlit by the network.
I really like the idea of this new series, and if it runs back to back with The Closer, even better. One could do worse than a night of TV featuring William H. Macy and Kyra Sedgwick.
Also, since the series' name is very similar to Family Guy, maybe they could do a crossover episode. That would be both awesome and pointless.
