Days Of Future Past

Now that crime has been cleaned up, what's a TV producer to do?

Go back in time.

NBC is producing a pilot called NY70, a drama based loosely on The French Connection heroin smuggling case. Set in the early 70's, it hopes to capture the tensions of the decade, and stars It stars Donnie Wahlberg,Tony Lo Bianco and Bobby Cannavale.

Sounds interesting, but will a period drama appeal to the younger demos today's advertisers crave? Bell-bottomed crime fighters? Big-lapelled, big-afroed, muttonchop wearin' detectives? Hmmm....
