The Usual SuspectsNever before has so little information gotten me so excited about a TV show.

Here's all I know. It's written by Christopher McQuarrie, who penned The Usual Suspects. That's good. It's about a group of strangers who wake up in a deserted town with no idea how they got there. They're being monitored by security cameras and have to work together on solving a puzzle to escape. It's Lost meets The Prisoner. That's it.

NBC picked up Persons Unknown for a thirteen-episode run and we're promised that it will be heavily serialized. I'm sold. I love the idea of different people from different backgrounds having to work together, and I have complete faith in McQuarrie. The Usual Suspects is one of the most brilliantly penned films I've ever seen.
