What the world doesn’t know is that long before Ryan was a cop, he pledged allegiance to a different band of brothers a powerful Latino gang called Los Angelicos. When Ryan’s best friend and partner is senselessly killed by a notorious gang member, Ryan teams up with longtime Task Force member Cassius Green (RZA, “G.I.

mixology-abc-tv-show 9. Mixology Network: ABC Premiere Date: Feb. 26th The series takes place all over the course of one night at a Manhattan bar called “Mix”, where six women and five men meet up for more than just a casual conversation and a drink.

Gotham Network: Fox Premiere Date: TBD “Gotham,” a Batman prequel show developed by The Mentalist creator Bruno Heller that will cover “the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains that made Gotham famous. In most chronologies, James Gordon; the man who will later become Commissioner Gordon, and Batman’s ally in the police department is a transplant to Gotham, which makes him an ideal point-of-view character to introduce audiences to whatever era or iteration of the city the new show chooses. Gotham is a rich setting, with a weird, dark, and substantially supernatural history; even without Batman-inspired supervillains, Fox will have mobsters, the occult, and, of course, the extended and creepy origins of Arkham Asylum. mtv-real-world-explosion-cast-w724 7.
