What caught my eye were two of the supporting actors shown in the trailer. Fans of "LOST" will notice a few friendly (or not so friendly looking) faces in NBC's new "Constantine" show scheduled to premiere next fall.
The show is about a damned exorcist "John Constantine" who battles the demons in demon possessed people. Along the way (from what is mentioned in the video), he seems to find a little hope for his own salvation.
Based on the wildly popular comic book series "Hellblazer" from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine specializes in giving hell... hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight - or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he's decided to leave his do-gooder life behind. But when demons target Liv, the daughter of one of Constantine's oldest friends, he's reluctantly thrust back into the fray - and he'll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it's revealed that Liv's "second sight," an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences, is a threat to a mysterious new evil that's rising in the shadows. And now it's not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world - and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows... maybe there's hope for him and his soul after all.
From Executive Producer David S. Goyer ("Batman Begins," "The Dark Knight Rises") and director Neil Marshall ("Game of Thrones," "The Descent") comes a dark new thriller that proves fighting evil is a hell of a job. One-hour drama -end-
OK, so I like the "fighting evil is a hell of job" hook and because I was a fan of "LOST" I already know I am going to tune in to see Harold Perrineau (LOST's Michael) and Jeremy Davies (LOST's time traveling genius Daniel) in "Constantine".
