When we first heard about TNT’s upcoming series Men of a Certain Age and the well chosen cast, we were pretty excited.  This new promotional trailer, the first look we’ve had a look at, just added to that.  Seems like it’s going to be a funny, good-natured type of show.  We’re really looking forward to this and hoping that someone in the PR world is nice enough to shoot us some episodes when their publicity push begins (hint hint).

Vodpod videos no longer available.

TNT has yet to announce a premiere date for Men of a Certain Age, though, as the above picture states, it should be in December 2009.

TNT posted a teaser page for their upcoming series Men of A Certain Age.  Don’t bother rushing over their site, unless you really want to.  All you’re gonna find is the picture that’s above.  We were serious when we said it was a teaser.  The network ordered 10 episodes for the first season, which, according to the graphic, begins airing this December.  That’s a bit of a change as previous reports had a January debut.

According the show’s wikipedia page, “The series follows the bonds of friendship of three college friends, Joe, Owen and Terry, who are now in their 40s.  Joe (Ray Romano) is a slightly neurotic divorced father of two (Brittany Curran plays Lucy and Braeden Lemasters plays Albert) who hoped to become a pro golfer but now owns a party store.  Owen (Andre Braugher) is an overstressed husband and father, who is a car salesman at his dad’s dealership. Terry (Scott Bakula) is a struggling actor dating a much younger woman.”

Sounds like it could be really funny, so long as it’s done right.  Ray Romano co-wrote the pilot script and we’re big fans of all three actors, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed.  Romano hasn’t appeared regularly on television since Everybody Loves Raymond.  Scott Bakula, who ruled as the elder Bartowski on Chuck, hasn’t been a series regular since Star Trek: Enterprise, though we’re way bigger Quantum Leap fans.  Andre Braugher, best known as Baltimore bad-ass Det. Frank Pembleton on Homicide: Life On The Street, also picked up an Emmy for his part in the FX miniseries, Thief.  Good  to have all three back on the small screen!
