Life

Show Summary

Life is an NBC police drama about a police detective who is released from prison after serving 12 years for a crime he didn't commit. Charlie Crews (Damien Lewis) is released from Pelican Bay State Prison after DNA evidence proves he didn't murder his former business partner Tom Seyboldt and two of his immediate family members. Having lost his wife, job, friends and all contact with the outside world, Crews makes it his mission to solve the murder that cost him 12 years of his life. Crews rejoins the police department, much to the chagrin of his boss Lt. Karen Davis (Robin Weigart), who makes it her business to run him out of the department for good. Crews is partnered with Det. Dani Reese (Sarah Shahi), a recovering drug addict and alcoholic, who is battling her own demons. Crews is forced to confront various people in his past to unravel the mystery behind who framed him and why.

    This was one of the few intellectual programs on tv. The acting was superb. Cancel some of the inane reality tv programming and get this program back with the same cast. Kristy
  • Bring "LIFE" back

    10
    I started again to watch the show "Life" 2007-2009, what an outstanding show. Excellent acting, brilliantly written, captivating characters and top that with a stellar cast; Damian Lewis and Sara Shahi. "Life" was indeed an exceptional show, but with time slot mismanagement and some what a head of its time, it did not reach its potential.

    Rolling forward to today and with Damian Lewis exceptional performance in "Homeland", I do urge NBC to give it some consideration in to reviving "Life" in 2015-2016. I totally understand the complexity and strain of the corporate world, but beyond doubt "Life" time is here, now and with aforementioned characteristics it is a recipe for succeed.

    Just watched series 1&2 brilliant, googled to see when series 3 was coming and can't believe it was made so long ago and was cancelled after 2. I love shows like this, Damien Lewis and cast are brilliant in this, on the back of Damian Lewis's recent success this show should be reinstated. Sad there is no more.

    Once more NBC has proven that they Has No Idea What A Goog Show Is. How on earth did this show not get renewed & sufficient advertising to raise iit's numbers up.
