Incendo media specializes in quickly shot, low-budget TV dramas with convoluted plots and has-been actors.
This shot in Montreal (standing-in for New York, I guess...) crime drama is above their usual crop. Louis Bolduc, the director, could very well be the guy to save this segment of the entertainment industry by cleverly giving these quickies a bit more production value than the budget can afford and by getting decent actors who can give their best despite the obstacles of a tight shooting schedule and zero rehearsal time.
Jessica Capshaw is believable as a cute and clever young woman who must use all her wit to get out of a murder accusation. She may not be as drop-dead gorgeous as her mom was, back in her "Temple of Doom" days, but she can surely act circles around her !
Veteran Canadian TV actor Art Hindle has fun with the role of a charming media-loving lawyer who has a few tricks and surprises up his sleeves.
Overall, you won't get the feeling that you've lost your time watching this drama, even if it doesn't "feel" like a big movie.
Let's see what Louis Bolduc serves us next !
