Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

The Finder -Upcoming Fox-TV series set in South Florida, from the creator of "BONES," is “a different kind of detective”; premieres Jan. 12th

The latest effort from Hart Hanson, creator of Fox's long-running hit "BONES," is a mid-season drama starring Geoff Stults and Michael Clarke Duncan called "The Finder," premiering Thursday January 12th at 9 p.m., immediately following American Idol's results show, which will air while "BONES" is on hiatus and its dynamic star Emily Deschanel recovers from her recent pregnancy.

It's not a criminal/forensics procedural, which while disappointing to some "BONES" fans who may migrate elsewhere for a bit, is yet another TV series set in sunny and criminally sordid South Florida, where we never ever run out of sun or criminals, not to mention, heat and humidity.

To my surprise, that did not save the recent reboot of ABC-TV's "Charlie's Angels," set in Miami, which I thought at the time might lead to Minka-mania hereabouts, on account of star Minka Kelly and ABC's sheer relentless promotion of the show all year.
But I -and ABC- were very wrong.

Probably just as well, since I prefer Minka as sweet, optimistic and positive, not some angry revenge-hungry woman operating on the edge of the law.

Minka Kelly is the Sexiest Woman Alive 2010. Esquire, November 2010.
My Sept. 15th post of this year regarding what turned out to be a premature case of Minka-mania was titled, Minka-mania! Soon, South Florida will be Minka's World: we'll just live in it; Charlie's Angels premieres on ABC-TV next Thursday.

Keeping with the Fox theme, as a pre-Christmas bonus today, I give you Shannon Woodward and $100.
Or, more accurately, tease you with what you can do with $100.

Since I don't watch Fox's Tuesday night show "Raising Hope," the last time I saw Shannon Woodward on TV was two years ago, when she played Linda Cardellini's (Sam Taggart's) younger sister on an episode of E.R. in its last year.

They looked so similar, that, not having read anything about the episode beforehand, when I actually saw her, I almost though she might really be Cardellini's real-life sister I'd never heard of. Nope!

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 2016
