FOX has released another trailer of its new reanimation action drama, Second Chance. Already on its third title (see: The Frankenstein Code and Lookinglass), Second Chance is set to premiere Wednesday, January 13, 2016, at 9:00pm ET/PT. Previously, FOX cut the episode order from 13 to 11.
Twin scientists and billionaire founders of the social networking empire, Lookinglass, Mary (Dilshad Vadsaria) and Otto Goodwin (Adhir Kalyan) are on a quest to save one of their own lives. Asking, “What would you do with with a second chance,” the series follows disgraced former sheriff and murder victim, Jimmy Pritchard (Robert Kazinsky), who is brought back to life, younger and stronger. Tim DeKay and Ciara Bravo also star. Philip Baker Hall guest stars.

What do you think? Do you like the sound of the Second Chance TV show on FOX? Does it want to be sci-fi, a cop show, or a social media drama? Do you plan to watch the series premiere?
Watched the trailer, and while it seems this sort of story has been worked out in previous makeovers of Frankenstein, this series could make it successfully with some very skilled scriptwriters. I loved Tim DeKay in White Collar, but that series was successful because of some very clever scripts and imaginative storylines. I’d be willing to watch this series to see if it can make this fantasy situation believable.
The trailer doesn’t make me want to watch. If subsequent trailers are just as bad I will wait for reviews before watching.
There are a couple of actors in the show that I like, so I will give it a chance. Odds are it won’t last long, because it is on Fox and they haven’t treated it well.
