Who's in it and where you've seen them: Mr. Christian Slater in his first starring role on network TV. He's done guest spots on "My Name is Earl," "Alias," and "The West Wing," and one of his last films of note, "Slipstream," was directed by Anthony Hopkins.
Whos behind it: Universal Media Studios and "Bionic Woman" -- don't hold that against him -- producer Jason Smilovic.
Why youll watch: A mild-mannered suburban dad learns that his alter ego is a spy. It's happened before ("Total Recall"-like), but this show is described as "The Bourne Identity" meets "Jekyll & Hyde." That's enough right there to give it a try.
