Last week I saw an ad for a really cool looking new show coming to NBC this summer: Persons Unknown.
It looks like freaky, mind-bending fun. The clip I saw (the first one below) immediately grabbed my attention. It reminded me of a dream I once had where I ended up trapped in a kookie little town. (Except I wasn’t abducted. I went there of my own free will, but I wasn’t allowed to leave once I stumbled on it. And unbeknown to me they placed tracking devices on everyone so they could monitor their every move. If you got close to the outskirts they’d get you.)
Persons Unknown reminded me first of that dream, but it also kind of reminded me of the Saw movies. The first clip especially suggests a similarity on that front.
It’ll be interesting to see how it shakes out. Might be just the thing to add a little spice and mystery to the summer TV viewing line up.
Alan Ruck and Jason Wiles star. Christopher McQuarrie (Oscar-winning writer of The Usual Suspects) is one of the executive producers. It’ll premiere Monday June 7th at 10 p.m. EST/9 p.m. CST.
Here’s a couple of clips to whet your appetite courtesy of NBC’s site.
