You don't think this series will appeal to American audiences? I think it might.
I could be wrong. Hollywood works the broad base, inserting violence and terrorism fear and cheap humor. We are the trained seals. Thanks to our public schools, we rank at the bottom of all developed nations in higher order thinking. This new series may have a limited audience - the intelligent.
Every segment helps, however. Going after segments is how market share is built.
As for Robin Wright being a Hot Flashing too old hottie, at least she knows how to act.
