ABC's new show 'The Evidence' puts a twist to the standard police drama

MUMBAI: People lie. The Evidence doesn't. US broadcaster ABC has announced that it will launch this new show that puts a twist on the standard police procedural drama.


At the start of each episode, all of the clues (a locket, a phone, a severed finger) are revealed in a videotaped evidence log. The show then flashes to the day the crime was committed and invites viewers to play along with the heroes as they find each clue, determine its meaning, put the pieces of the puzzle together and figure out who done it.

No one knows the importance of evidence more than the lead character Inspector Sean Cole. After he lost his wife in a brutal murder, the only evidence the cops had was accidentally destroyed, and it ruined his faith in the system. Fortunately his partner and best friend, Bishop, is there for him, pulling him back to work, pushing him forward, as they both try to solve these complex cases set against the streets of San Francisco.

The show stars Oscar winner Martin Landau Ed Wood and Nicky Katt. In total ABC's 2005-2006 fall schedule will have 12 new series. Oscar winner Geena Davis Thelma And Louise will try her hand on the small screen with Commander-in-Chief. She plays Mackenzie Allen has a lot on her plate. She has twin teenagers and a six-year-old at home, an ambitious husband at the office, and she is about to become the first female President of the US.



Before that happens, however, Mackenzie, who serves as VP has to decide whether or not to go against the dying wishes of the current President, who has asked her to step down and let someone "more appropriate" fill his shoes in the Oval Office. Not only does the President want her to resign, so does the entire party that elected her in the first place.

Actor Freddie Prinze Jr gets to star in the comedy Freddie. Four women to every man are great odds when you're a single guy out on the town, but not ideal when it comes to your living situation. Freddie is a young, successful chef with his own restaurant, a stylish bachelor pad and a trust fund baby for a best friend. The world should be Freddie's oyster at this stage in life, but bachelorhood isn't working out exactly as he envisioned.

Freddie loved growing up in a house full of women. He loved the energy of everyone running around, loved cooking for them all, but now

He is finally starting to realise why his father used to lock himself in the bathroom just for some peace and quiet. Still, Freddie believes family always comes first, which is why he insisted his sister, sister-in-law, niece and grandmother come live with him after his brother passed away. Slowly but surely they are taking over his domain, and voicing their many opinions about his love life. Freddie will have to learn to balance his role as provider, brother, grandson and uncle, all while trying to enjoy what should be his swinging single days.
