From the 1950s The Untouchables, to the more recent The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire and The Borgias, television series about crime families and organized crime have been popular and thus award winning programming across different networks.
Tonight’s premiere of Rogue across DIRECTV’s Audience Network is sure to be a winner, given the level of talent involved with the production, led by Nick Hamm [Executive Producer/ Show Runner] and Matthew Parkhill [creator/writer].
There is no doubt that I cannot be hooked with this series after having met the three cast members above in mid-March. In person, I noted a strong, but natural connection among the three cast members and as they spoke of their characters and their experience, I was hooked.
I wholeheartly enjoyed meeting and interviewing them all for their own individual personalities. As for Joshua, ladies and gentlmen, I know he is a talent who I want to follow. He has good looks and charm to boot and with one look, can say volumes. Run to the television set NOW!
