- Update on Life Damian Lewis’s new NBC serial TV drama:
» On Saturday May 12th Damian’s associate Melissa sent this message:
“Just in case you haven’t heard yet…’Life’ has been picked up by
NBC!!!! All very exciting. I saw Damian last night to celebrate and
he is thrilled…”
» Damian Lewis was in New York City today for the NBC Upfront announcement of their fall schedule. Life will air on Wednesday nights at 10 PM (Eastern Time). According to Variety the Wednesday night line-up will be NBC’s biggest challenge against the competition. Click here for photos of Damian and co-stars Adam Arkin and Sarah Shahi at the NBC Upfront.

» The NBC.com site now offers the trailer for Life, several clips from the show, interviews with co-stars Damian Lewis and Sarah Shahi, and still photos of the cast!
» According to the NBC announcement episodes of Life will air on the USA Channel shortly after they are televised on NBC.
» Damian Lewis fans are strongly encouraged to post comments about the trailer for Life on NBC.com. Also, fans located outside of the US are asked to write letters to their television networks to request the show because representatives of the international TV networks will be in Los Angeles next week for special screenings of the new programs.
