Nearly three years after the conclusion of Rescue Me, Denis Leary is returning to FX.
USA is revisiting science fiction with a new show from Walking Dead producer Gale Anne Hurd, called Horizon. The show, set during the Second World War, will follow a secretary at the FBI as she investigates the death of her husband, the disappearance of a girl, and Nazi spies in the U.S.
USA Network on May 16 will make an upfront pitch to advertisers that will emphasize sitcoms and reality shows.
For anyone still stinging over Denis Leary's violent and untimely death at the hands of a giant half-lizard guy in the latest Spider-Man flick (oh sorry, were you waiting for the DVD?), you can catch the motor-mouthed actor in a new series of Ford F-150 ads. The combo live-action/motion-graphics spots aim to sell the fuel efficiency, not just the torque, of the big truck. (The F-150, by the way, has again topped Autodata's list of hottest-selling vehicles in the country, according to USA Today). The quick-cut, propaganda-poster-style images are a nice accompaniment to Leary's rapid-fire voiceover, coming from Ford's Team Detroit and Gravity, a design, visual effects and branding shop. The message of all previous Leary spots for the F-150 since 2008 remains: Buy one already, or he will think you're a total douche.
