The Black Donn-'eh'-llys

Posted on


Black_lNBC’s been running trailers for its new spring drama, TheBlack Donnellys, and every time I watch, I feel confused. It’s aboutbrothers? And… they fight a lot, I think. There’s not much else I can figure out,except that I find the narrator a little annoying. The series was created bydirector Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco, the writers behind Crash, so dependingon how you feel about that movie, you’ll have different expectations for this show. There’s a pretty nifty interactive preview on NBC.com, but I’m still notinclined to watch the pilot next week (and when the entire episode is online already, why would I?). Are any of you PopWatchers going to check it out?
