     September 9, 2010

I’ve been raving about new FX shows for months now.  Archer, Justified, Louie, Terriers: they’re having a helluva 2010.  While the January premiere leaves Lights Out just outside FX’s calendar year of excellence, a rough cut of the pilot has been earning strong early reviews.

The boxing drama stars Holt McCallany as “an aging former heavyweight boxing champion who struggles to find his identity and support his wife and three daughters after retiring from the ring.”  You can check out the stylish new trailer for the show after the jump.

The official synopsis:

Lights Out, from Executive Producer/Showrunner Warren Leight (In Treatment) and Creator/Executive Producer Justin Zackham (The Bucket List), stars Holt McCallany (CSI: Miami) as an aging former heavyweight boxing champion who struggles to find his identity and support his wife and three daughters after retiring from the ring.  Financial problems leave him at a perilous crossroads – battling the urge to return to boxing or reluctantly accepting a job as a brutal and intimidating debt collector.  Catherine McCormack (Braveheart) co-stars as “Theresa Leary,” Lights’ wife who is finishing her medical residency; Pablo Schreiber (Law & Order) as “Johnny Leary, Lights’ brother and business manager whom Lights put through college; and Stacy Keach (Fat City) as “Pops,” Lights’ father and former trainer who runs the boxing gym owned by Lights. Clark Johnson (The ShieldThe Wire) and Norberto Barba (In TreatmentCSI: NY) directed the pilot episode. Phillip Noyce (Salt) and Ross Fineman are also Executive Producers. Lights Out is produced by Fox Television Studios and FX Productions.
