Deathrow meets front row, and roll call means curtain call when this rambunctious group of miscreants on deathrow put together a theater company that ultimately leads to a stay of execution. As long as they keep writing, they keep our hearts a’flutter and their lives a’livin.
Starring Danny Pintauro as Willie “The Gouger” Hunter, the inspiration of the crew. Jennifer Grey as Officer Shelly Picks, the lead of many of Hunter’s plays. Katherine Helmond returns to television as The Widow Bauer looking for love from the man who killed her husband. That man, played by the lovable Richard Mulligan. Rounding out the crew is Anthony Head as the neurotic Jewish warden of this hilarious hell hole.
With the upcoming WB line up, this one is sure to be a electrifying show for these classic television icons.
