    This is another good “get” for CBS along with Patricia Arquette. Finally a reason to watch CBS again! :)

  3. Daniel says:

    Good news! Looking forward to it!

    Btw, the series is called “Red Zone”.

    Sorry, while I do like Anthony LaPaglia, I question whether we need another FBI/CIA show.

    It was a shame ABC didn’t pick Americana up that was a show made for him

    Love Anthony LaPaglia but I’m surprised he’s returning to the network that treated him so disgracefully 5 years ago. He had some very harsh things to say about the management back then. Anyways, it’s not a procedural, so it probably won’t be a hit.
