SPOTLIGHT ON ABC'S NEW PSYCHOLOGICAL TV SERIES 'BLACK BOX' FROM BRYAN SINGER WITH KELLY REILLY, VANESSA REDGRAVE, DITCH DAVEY!

  BLACK BOX
NEW DRAMA COMING TO ABC!
If you are looking for a new show to watch every week, here's one coming to ABC this Thursday with its first ever episode: BLACK BOX is a psychological medical drama which was ordered directly for a whole season coming from the brilliant Bryan Singer the helmer of HOUSE, X MEN and USUAL SUSPECTS, and with gorgeous Kelly Reilly portraying the protagonist of the show, a famous neuroscientist who is bipolar herself. Vanessa Redgrave and Ditch Davey also star!

  BLACK BOX STORY
MYSTERIES OF HUMAN BRAIN
The thirteen episode series will follow Catherine Black (Kelly Reilly), a famous neuroscientist who secretly has bipolar disorder; the only person who knows is her psychiatrist, Dr. Helen Hartramph (Vanessa Redgrave), who was with Catherine after her first break and has been a maternal figure for Catherine since her mother, who also suffered from bipolar disorder, committed suicide. The twenty-first century is the era of the brain, and this show will be riding that wave on the cutting edge of medicine. The brain is the source of everything - from whom we love to how we act and feel. It is the ultimate mystery, which is why doctors call it, the BLACK BOX. Dr. Catherine Black and the staff of "The  Cube" will constantly be challenged by cases never seen before on television. The patients have rare, highly visual, often hallucinogenic and startling conditions, which we will see through their eyes as Dr. Black diagnoses and treats them.

    5. Asking The Dezz to stop showing off is like asking a gorilla to stop eating bananas. How that for an interesting analogy?

  3. I find the ethical malfeasance of the series' premise to be off-putting. I don't think I'll watch this program.

  4. It's kind of interesting a show about mental health is going mainstream. Could help reduce some stigma or at least open up some conversation on the subject. Then again this is television, so maybe not. :P

  8. I like Bryan Singer's style. I even liked the way he tried to portray Superman (unlike the plot which still gives me nightmares). But another medical drama thingie... I don't know. Maybe if we starred in it to spice up the genre.
