A great new addition
Only one episode of Deadline has aired, and I'm already a fan. I must admit, I was looking forward to this show way before it premiered, but now that I have seen it, I love it. The show stars Oliver Platt as Wallace Benton, a journalist for a New York tabloid paper called the Ledger. He always gets this information he needs for his stories no matter what it takes.

Wallace works at the same paper as his wife, and they seem to be in the middle of a divorce/separation, tho they're clearly still on really good terms. Benton, along with his journalism, teaches a group of journalism grad students. He uses one of his students, a female-I forget her name, to help him research stories, and she's one of the main characters. He has other students who are in the show less, but they also help him get information for his stories. I love Platt in general, and I think he is perfect in this role. He's passionate about what he does, he works hard, and it looks as tho he's a kind of guy who is always going to try to do the right thing. I like that in a character. Platt is also very funny in this show. I think overall, the show is great. Great characters, perfect casting, and a thrilling plot. I think this show has a bright future.
