First Look: Leverage on TNT

I have a huge soft spot in my heart for Timothy Hutton (mostly thanks to Beautiful Girls). But while he's what initially attracted me to the new TNT series Leverage, which premieres in December, he might not be the only reason to stick around.

Leverage focuses on a group of criminals who are, essentially, the high-action version of Robin Hood: They use their schemes and skills to take revenge on those who use their power and wealth for evil. Hutton stars as Nate Ford, who once recovered millions of dollars in stolen goods for his corporate employer — and then finds himself wracked with grief and anger when his employer denies his son's insurance claims, allowing the boy to die. Ford assembles a team of henchmen who are experts at hacking, stealing, and lying and who can use their skills to fight against corporate greed and evil.

Gina Bellman, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf, and Aldis Hodge (who briefly played Voodoo on Friday Night Lights!) round out the cast. The show will kick off with a commercial-free premiere on Dec. 7 before moving to its regular timeslot, Tuesdays at 10 p.m., on Dec. 9. I'll be interviewing some of the cast and crew this weekend, so to check out some promos and pass along any questions you might have about Leverage, just

Looking forward to learning even more about this show. It seems as though it's a good fit for TNT. Nice to see Aldis Hodge again; makes me even more nostalgic for FNL.
