A New TV show I'm looking forward to...

by - 12/04/2009

This has been one interesting Fall season of TV. One of my favorite shows, Monk, is ending. Many other promising new ones (The Good Wife, White Collar, Modern Family, etc) have started. With the looming Holiday season, you wouldn't think a new series is going to be started now. But there is and it's one I've been looking forward to - for it stars one of my favorite TV stars, Ray Romano!

That's right, I'm talking about "Men of a Certain Age", the new TNT show that will premiere Monday, December 7 at 10/9c.

Men Of A Certain AgeJohn Lennon once wrote, “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” For three men entering the second act of their lives, those words are starting to hit home. The show follows three longtime friends - played by Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond) Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap, Star Trek: Enterprise) and Andre Braugher (Homicide: Life on the Street) – as they navigate the changes and challenges of mid-life.

Men Of A Certain AgeMEN OF A CERTAIN AGE explores the unique bonds of male friendship among three men experiencing the changes and challenges of mid-life. They have been best friends since college but now, in their 40s, are navigating through the second act of their lives. Joe (Romano) is a friendly, slightly neurotic, recently separated father of two who had dreams of being a professional golfer. Now he owns and runs a party store. Terry (Bakula) is a laid-back, handsome actor who seems to breeze through life (and women). Lately, he’s spending more time working as a temp than as an actor. And Owen (Braugher) is an overstressed husband and father of three who endures constant criticism from his father, for whom he works as a car salesman.

Men Of A Certain AgeThese friends face very different challenges. Joe, who currently lives in a hotel, tries to connect with his kids and is dipping his toe in the dating pool, while also struggling with the gambling problem that may have ended his marriage. The unmarried Terry scoffs at domestic issues but sometimes wonders if his own single life is all it’s cracked up to be. Owen does everything he can to climb the sales board at his father’s car dealership and keep his cool over the seemingly endless renovation project in the home he can barely afford. Through it all, these men are there for each other when it counts.
