Here's one show you won't see on The CW this fall

by Bob Sassone, posted May 22nd 2009 3:10PM
I'm a fan of Washington, D.C.-based TV shows, so I'm sorry this show didn't make the cut for this fall's schedule on The CW (I guess the world was screaming for a Melrose Place update instead). It's Body Politic and stars Minka Kelly, Jay Hernandez, Jason Dohring, Gabrielle Union, and Tim Matheson. Thankfully, the internet can let us see some scenes from the pilot.

wow, that looks like an awesome show... I'm kinda disappointed about it not getting picked up, and it has a pretty good cast too.

This is the CW pilot I was most excited for this year. Huge mistake not picking this one up. Canceling Privileged and passing on Body Politic are both bad moves this year. It seems like this could have been the show to give Dawn and Co. at least a little credibility as a network. Instead, they go with more carbon copies of carbon copies. And yet, for some reason, I'm still foolishly holding out hope that we'll see this mid-season.

I'm a fan of Washington, D.C.-based TV shows,, me too I still miss the CBS half-hour daytime soap Capitol which was only cancelled to make way for the Bold and the Beautiful and I still miss the West Wing.

Gabrielle and Minka? I'M SOLD. ok but seriously, two beautiful women, it has that going for it, I'd watch an episode or two to see how it is

It does look promising. I would have definitely checked it out. From the moment I heard Gabrielle was in it, along with Jason Dohring, I was sold.
But I agree with gabbyd, Minka's voice is irritating. Not a good narrating voice at all.

Nice premise, but I see why it didn't make it.

I would've checked it out solely because Gabrielle Union was in it.

This WOULD'VE been the only show I watched on the CW. Oh well.
