BACKSTROM: a Different Kind of Comedy?

I am not a great fan of the modern sitcom – most of what passes for situation comedies nowadays is mostly situation and very little comedy – so I am a bit surprised to find myself liking what I’ve seen of the forthcoming… er, police dramedy BACKSTROM, set to star THE OFFICE’s Rainn Wilson.

Yes, this series was created by Hart Hanson (BONES), which means we can expect a certain level of quality from the scripts and characterizations. Based on this teaser clip, I will watch this show when it debuts on Fox in 2015.
