Admittedly, we haven't paid too much attention to the development of Alan Ball's first post-'True Blood' project, that of the upcoming Cinemax thriller 'Banshee.' Cinemax's star has been on the rise following development of their stable of original series, from sexy noir thriller 'Femme Fatales' to action-drama 'Strike Back,' and even the upcoming 'Transporter' adaptation. So what can we learn from the first teaser for 'Banshee'?
Clever, we know. We'd more or less forgotten that the 'Transporter' coming to Cinemax as a 12-episode TV series was even a thing, considering the last major news we heard was the show casting Chris Vance as its eponymous driver in May of 2011, followed by an on-set injury and a number of creative overhauls. Even the release of the series' first trailer seems curiously quite all things considered, but without further ado...'Transporter!' It has cars.
Here's an unlikely combination: 'CSI' star, William Petersen and the network that gave us 'Co-Ed Confidential' and 'Lingerie,' Cinemax. The HBO sister channel is partnering with Petersen on 'Hurt People,' an original scripted series and the latest attempt at bringing mainstream programming to the network loving referred to as "Skinemax."
