    Starts April 9 / Ends July 2 - New Episode every Saturday 10:00pm et:

    Seven years after her mom & five other people were killed on a secluded island off the coast of Seattle, Abby Mills along with a group of family & friends return back to the island for the wedding of her best friend. As the wedding festivities begin, friendships are tested and secrets exposed as a murderer claims victims, one by one, transforming the wedding week of fun and celebration into a terrifying struggle for survival.

    Directed by Jon Turteltaubis (National Treasure), in every episode someone is killed and every person is a suspect, from the wedding party to the island locals. By the end of the 13 episodes, all questions will be answered, the killer will be revealed and only a few will survive.

    I'm glad it's a 13 ep and done show. Had I know Lost would turn into what it has, I never would've started watching it. I'm still watching Lost and glad it has a known end date now too.

    Yeah that was the main appeal is for me....other unnamed shows meandered off into multiple indulgent seasons, i'm all for a show thats gonna have a beginning middle and end all in one 13 episode swoop..

    It appears we have some who, like me, prefer the British model which, though sometimes results in a show having more seasons than expected, usually ends shows with 12-20 episodes. None of those episodes that look like the writers sat in a room asking each other "what do we do now?"

    Yeah. From the story:
    What, never heard of a mini-series before? And British TV does it successfully all the time. I don't think a "chainsaw massacre" series is the best test, but what do I know.

    On the other hand, if it pulls enough advertising for CBS, it's a success so maybe we'll be lucky enough to see more of these rather than a 13-week and canceled unresolved series.

    And don't forget "The Prisoner" in the 70's starring


    And don't forget "The Prisoner" in the 70's starring Patrick McGoohan (sp).
    It was a british 17 episode summer replacement here.
    What it replaced I don't recall.
