ABC's SCOUNDRELS is a new summer show that will premiere on Sunday, June 20, at 9pm. I had a chance to take an early look at the first episode "And Jill Came Tumbling After," which stars the fabulous Virginia Madsen ("Sideways"), David James Elliott (JAG), and Carlos Bernard (Tony on "24").
Cheryl West (Virginia Madsen), the matriarch of the West family, is at her wit's end with her family and their disregard for the law. They generally stick to petty crimes, but after their father (David James Elliott) is sent to prison, Cheryl decides that they will all give up their life of crime and become model citizens.
Cheryl is partially inspired by her son, Logan, a newly minted attorney who has distanced himself from the family business. However, his twin brother, Cal (both played by Patrick Flueger), aspires to be a criminal just like his father.
Their youngest sister, Hope (Vanessa Marano), appears to be the brains of the family although she would rather make movies than go to school. I immediately recognized Vanessa Marano from Gilmore Girls and Young & the Restless. She always seems to play the role of the brainy, sarcastic teenager - but hey, she's good at it, so why not?
