TNT's Trust Me Is Deliciously Fun To Watch



Thanks to Role Mommy and TNT, the hubbs and I got a sneak preview of TNT's new drama, "Trust Me", starring Eric McCormack (who did not love Eric in "Will and Grace"??) and Tom Cavanagh from "Ed." (also yummy to watch!)

We settled in to watch our preview copy of the pilot episode and the second episode the other night, and we really enjoyed it. I may sound surprised here because I am not a drama type girl so much. I generally go for the reality based shows and light hearted romantic comedies. But a series with the so cute Eric McCormack starring in it is definitely worth taking a look at, right? And I am so happy I did.

"Trust Me" is centered around the daily ins and outs at a high profile ad agency in Chicago. McCormack and Cavanagh play best friends working as an energetic successful creative team at the agency.

Mason, an art director, is a responsible, workaholic family man with a beautiful wife, Erin (Sarah Clarke), two children and an undying loyalty to the brands he helps sell. By contrast, his writing partner, Conner (Cavanagh), is a single, impulsive copywriter with the attention span of a teenager. Their yin-yang relationship is put to the test when Mason is named a creative director of the agency, making him Conner's boss. The series follows the changing dynamics between the two friends, who are better together than they are apart.

Although it builds a bit slowly, the action picks up quickly and draws you in. I found myself getting so into the characters and their interactions that I couldn't wait to watch the second episode. That is when Mason's wife Erin is introduced, and I know her character is going to be popular with women--I loved her from the get go!

And an ad agency probably would not be complete without the quirkiness of a "nerdy" creative team -- and in "Trust Me", the junior creative team of Tom and Hector, played respectively by Mike Damus and Geffory Arend fit the bill perfectly. The newest person to join the agency is Sarah Krajicek-Hunter, played by "Boston Legal's" Monica Potter. I see her as the type you kind of like and don't at the same time-- a somewhat egotistical high maintenance sort that has won awards for her work in the past and makes sure people know about it. But she plays perfectly off McCormack and Cavanagh.

Both my hubby and I loved "Trust Me", and I know if you tune in and watch it, you will get hooked. It is the kind of show that draws you in and gets you involved with the characters and their lives. It has drama but also humor, wit and light hearted fun too. Definitely going to be on my select list of television shows to watch from now on!

You can check out Eric McCormack, Tom Cavanaugh (so easy on the eyes...) in "Trust Me" on Monday Jan. 26th when it premieres on TNT at 10/9c.
