Here’s the first trailer for FX’s “Terriers,” a new drama that premieres on September 8th. Given that it comes from Shawn Ryan (“The Shield”), it seems like it should look more promising than it does. I dunno, I guess I just don’t love Donal Logue as a leading man. Hard to trust a guy whose parents were too lazy to finish spelling his name.
Here’s the description from FX’s website:
Terriers from Creator/Executive Producer Ted Griffin (Ocean’s Eleven, Matchstick Men) and Executive Producer Shawn Ryan (The Shield), is a comedic drama starring Donal Logue (The Tao of Steve) and Michael Raymond-James (True Blood). It centers on “Hank Dolworth” (Logue), an ex-cop, who partners with his best friend “Britt Pollack” (Raymond-James) in an unlicensed private investigation business. Comedic, edgy, original, a show about high stakes in the face of low expectations, Terriers explores what it’s like in today’s America to be “too small to fail.”
Apparently, the show’s title comes from the main characters being small guys (metaphorically) with tenacity, but I don’t like it. You call a show “Terriers,” I better see some f*ckin’ terriers in every episode. Animal Planet wouldn’t even THINK about pulling a stunt like that.
