Extended HD Promo for ABC’s The Gates

ABC has released a second, slightly longer promo for its upcoming supernatural crime drama “The Gates”, which debuts on June 20th. Just by virtue of the fact that Rhona Mitra’s in it, I’m willing to give it a shot; here’s hoping it fares better than “Happy Town” did!

“The Gates” stars Frank Grillo as Nick Monohan, Marisol Nichols as Sarah Monahan, Rhona Mitra as Claire Radcliff, Luke Mably as Dylan Radcliff, Travis Caldwell as Charlie Monohan, Skyler Samuels as Andie Bates, Colton Haynes as Brett Crezski, Chandra West as Devon, Victoria Platt as Peg Mueller, Justin Miles as Marcus Jordan, and Janina Gavankar as Leigh Turner. It’s produced by Fox Television Studios, executive produced by Gina Matthews, and written and executive produced by Grant Scharbo and Richard Hatem.

Synopsis:
Nestled inside a private mountain community are The Gates. The image of perpetual suburban bliss, each street is lined with perfectly manicured homes protected by the massive iron gates, but a dark and delicious secret is buried just beneath the surface of this picturesque neighborhood.

Like most families that settle inside The Gates, the Monahans are unmoored from a complicated life they abandoned in Chicago. Named the new police chief of The Gates, Nick Monahan is expecting a change of pace in this quiet suburb. Nick’s wife, Sarah, and their children, Charlie and Dana, are embarking on new adventures as well. Their house is to die for, but amidst the excitement Sarah is still burdened with the revelation that her husband may not be the man she thought he was. Charlie and Dana will also face some challenges of their own: Along with navigating the trials and tribulations of adolescence, they’ll also face the daunting task of fitting into their new upscale school, where their new friends run in tight-knit packs.

There’s something very different about this place, almost… haunting. Unions will be complicated by friends with unnatural influence, insatiable housewives will struggle with ravenous cravings, and teenagers will be cursed with keeping their beastly instincts in check. The Monahans are facing an uncertain fate. Nick is about to be tangled up in a mystery where he will begin to piece together the dark truth about their new home and the supernatural elements that lurk behind the shadows of The Gates.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Did I miss something? Is Happy Town cancelled?

    • Terminal

      “Happy Town” is on hiatus until the summer and shows no signs of being kept on the network for an extended time.

        They did the same with “V”. Although they did not officially cancel it,they are not bringing it back right away when the new season starts. And adios “FlashForward”. Canceled. And the big surprise over at CBS? “Ghost Whisperer” done also.

          FireRam I’ll be amazed if “The Walking Dead” lasts more than two seasons on AMC. I know a lot of people are sure it’s going to hit the roof, but I’m hesitant to believe that right now. Television has little faith in genre shows these days. I’m shocked “Supernatural” has lasted so long.

        Seriously, what the fuck? This pisses me off so goddamn much. No, not because the show was the greatest thing I ever saw, but because these fucking asshole networks don’t give any show a legit chance to get a fan base. 3 episodes and they pull the plug? On a show deliberately paced to slowly gain momentum and mystery?

        Why the fuck should I ever again invest my time into getting interested in any show on network tv? They want instant success and if not, they cancel it and fuck over the 5 million viewers because they wanted 10 million viewers. Fuck you ABC! Why would I waste one minute watching The Gates now if there’s a great chance that too will be dropped once I get interested?

        • Terminal

          kiddcapone, I feel the same way. I don’t have faith in any new shows anymore, because they get canceled so quickly, and even when they’re hits, they still get canceled for no reason!

    Throw this in the “brilliant but canceled” pile soon enough. ABC does not know how to treat genre shows.

    I LOVE RHONA MITRA.

    That is all.

      And I do as well.

        I remember Rhona in an interview with Conan O’Brien where the exchange was something to effect of:

        “Are you with anyone right now?”
        “No I’m single.”
        “That’s shocking, I thought you’d be married or something.”
        “I don’t know anyone who’d have me.”

        I did a fucking double take. This woman is gorgeous, why wouldn’t anyone want her?
