First Look: Nurse Jackie and The United States of Tara

Showtime's got several intriguing new shows on its roster, and recently, the network released first glimpses of two of them: The United States of Tara and Nurse Jackie, both of which have intriguing actresses in the lead roles.

The United States of Tara, which premieres in January, stars Toni Collette as a woman with multiple-personality disorder. The clip has some scenes from the show, and in between those, the stars (and writer Diablo Cody) talk about how the project came together out of an idea from Steven Spielberg.

Nurse Jackie, which stars Edie Falco as a nurse walking the line between saint and sinner, doesn't have a premiere date yet, but I've been curious about it ever since I saw a haunting trailer for it back at TCA. Unfortunately, this clip doesn't have quite the drama of that trailer, but it's still nice just to get an idea of what the show will look like.

Do you have your eye on either show? You can watch the trailers if you

Oooh, United States of Tara looks better than expected (but what's with the hey-let's-be-arty-by-filming-the-actors-waving-their-arms-but-cutting-off-their-heads in the beginning of the preview)

i'm so excited that these actresses have new shows and hopefully the y will end up being great additions to the schedule. i'm a sucker for new types of shows that aren't necessarily the same thing that we've seen before, but may not be 100% mainstream. i'm looking forward to January i guess!

Toni Collette and Edie Falco are two of my favorites; I'll be checking out both of these shows. Love Diablo Cody's philosophy that comedy should only be written about serious things. Good point.
