I feel like I've been hearing about "The Black Donnellys" for months now. That's probably because the show — which follows four Irish brothers who get caught up in organized crime in New York — has some serious star power. The series was created by Oscar-winner Paul Haggis, who directed Crash and wrote the screenplay for Million Dollar Baby. Though NBC still hasn't set a premiere date for the show, it's supposed to get a tryout on Monday nights in March, in the "Studio 60" time slot.
Netflix subscribers who don't want to wait to see the show's pilot are in luck: NBC has is offering the first episode on a DVD that also includes a recap of the first 11 episodes of "Heroes" and a sneak-peak of another new show, Jeff Goldblum's "Raines." NBC also has a short video preview of the series on its First Look site. Has anyone else been hearing any buzz about this show?
