Who's in it and where youve seen them: You may remember Elisha Cuthbert in films such as The Girl Next Door or as Kim Bauer, the disaster-prone daughter dodging terrorists and cougars in TVs 24.
Whos behind it: "Ny-Lon," based on a British series, is produced by ABC Studios and would air on CBS. Written by Patricia Carr and Lara Runnels, who both wrote for 'Til Death, Reba and Boy Meets World.
Why youll watch: British shows adapted to American audiences can be a winning equation The Office, Sanford and Son (Britain's Steptoe and Son) and Threes Company (the British Man About the House). If nothing else, watch to see whether bombshell blond Cuthbert brings her 24 wide-eyed on-the-run look to her transatlantic relationship with a London stockbroker.
