RUFUS SEWELL IN A SUIT!! (Sorry, I just had to get that out of my system...)
At some point last year I can remember being intrigued by the announcement of a new mystery series starring Rufus Sewell (and it is NO SECRET I love me some Rufus Sewell!). Zen is based on a series of mystery novels by author Michael Dibdin - Rufus as an Italian? *swoon* I am so there.
According to BBC America's "DVDs in the works" blog, Zen is set to premiere on Masterpiece Mystery July 17th (speaking of schedules, PBS you seriously need to go ahead and announce the full Mystery line-up, like yesterday - just sayin'). Anyways - here's a preview:
I can not WAIT for this to start - it looks like fun! I love the fact that BBC America likens the vibe of the show to The Saint, starring Roger Moore as Simon Templar. If you've never seen that show - well it's a trip! *wink*
