I have a baaaad feeling about this. It could be a major take off like the remake of Battlestar Galactica, which I admit I was skeptical about when they first mentioned it... But hm...I dunno - we haven't seen much success with recent shows similar to this (Jake 2.0, and that show starring the kid with no belly button).
The series, which will air on Wednesdays at 9 p.m., stars Michelle Ryan from EastEnders as Jaime Sommers.
Here's how NBC describes the show:
"Struggling as a bartender and surrogate mom to her teenage sister, Jaime Sommers didn't think life could get much harder. But when a devastating car accident leaves her at death's door, Jaime's only hope for survival is a cutting-edge, top-secret technology that comes at a hefty price. With a whole new existence and a debt to re-pay, Jaime must figure out how to use her extraordinary abilities for good, while weighing the personal sacrifices she will have to make. Ultimately, it's Jaime's journey of self-discovery and inner strength that will help her embrace her new life as the Bionic Woman."
Will Yun Lee, who starred in Wtichblade and the Elektra movie, plays Jae, a specialized operations leader.
The cast also includes: Mae Whitman as Becca, Jaime's younger sister; Miguel Ferrer as Jonas, the man who employs Jaime's boyfriend; Chris Bowers as Will, Jaime's boyfriend, who performs the operation; and Molly Price, as Ruth, Jonas' second-in-command.
Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff plays Sara in the pilot episode. Bionic Woman is produced by NBC Universal Television Studio and executive-produced by David Eick, Glen Morgan, Michael Dinner (who also directed the pilot) and Jason Smilovic.
