Just ran across this piece of news on the Slayerverse website. Looks like Adam has signed on to star in Tim Minears new series "The Insider." Their source was the Whedonesque boards. Here's the thread:

Looks like I'll have another new show to watch if it actually makes it to air.

Adam confirmed this on the OB today.

Hooray for both Adam and Tim.

Let's hope Tim doesn't kill him off too quickly.

Sorry to nit-pick, but in case there's any confusion with a show called The Insider, Minear's show is The Inside. Cordy + River = ?

Select to view spoiler:


From Whedonesque:
The story is about a young woman who is an FBI agent in the Violent Crimes Unit in the LA Bureau.

They investigate the most twisted, brutal cases of violence, and Rebecca's (played by Nichols) talent is for profiling the victims. She's intuitive, broken, whip smart...and a little green, so she stumbles. I love her.

Facinelli was to play Paul, not really her boss, but the Agent who decides to partner up with her. Her boss is the morally ambiguous Web (being cast), who is so creepy that the gore and filth that surrounds their jobs actually recoils from him. He's my favorite character so far.

The show is sort of about this girl who hasn't really found herself yet, and so is very good at slipping into the skin of the victims and giving them a voice. Since everyone around her is filled with preconceived notions about women (and most victims of violent crime are women), she's able to think outside those boxes and provide a an honest picture of who the victim really is.

The show is definately procedural in nature: there's a violent crime, a mystery to be solved, twists and turns, and resolution. Sort of like the X-Files in that way. But like the X-files, the characters are deep wells designed to make us love them. They're meaty roles.

The style is sort of a hat tip to LA Confidential, with a noirish, gorgeous and rich view of Los Angeles (I really think of the city as the sixth character), but Tim brings in the creepy, chilling plot turns of Silence of the Lambs. Our girl is sort of soaked in the earnest smarts of Clarice Starling.

I just wish I could tell you all who signed on to the cast! You're gonna love it.

America loves a winner!


Darn spoilers. I had a paragraph written already and realized what I commenting on spoiler stuff. Doh!


Hope this thing takes off and does well. It seems more in line w/ what " T.V." people/The Suits want out of their scripted shows. Good for Tim and Adam.


I still miss Wonderfalls. Can't wait for the DVD to come out.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


Congrats to Adam! And to Tim too!

Best of luck. I will keep an eye out for the show. Even though it is on the hated Fox (spits) I will watch it if our BDH is on it.

Well fine...I guess F*X gets to suck me in to one more TV show. I'm sure they'll cancel it soon enough though.

Congrats to Adam and Tim. I hope they have just as much fun as they did working on Firefly.

Sad, it looks like the TV studios have won. Rather than something new and different it sounds like a stock standard cop show to appeal to the average knuckle dragging low IQ TV viewer.

Hope I'm wrong.

I hope this doesn't become a regular part for Adam, even though a new series is not at all likely it could mean a new series without all the main characters should one happen.

I know what you mean. On one hand you really want to see our favorite actors get some work—on the other you really don’t want them to have anything that might be too serious and keep them away from our Firefly. Bah!! What is a crazed Fan Girl to do?!

Because I am an American. And what does an American want? Democracy? Capitalism. I want to sell out and settle down. For one day only, it's a blue light special on Aisle Three. My wormhole technology... and a free set of steak knives... for all the tea in China. And anything you can imagine to pay me... welcome to my cold war.
