‘The Price Is Right’ season 2 premieres in UK with more ‘The Cost’ episodes
SUNDAY, MARCH 25, 2020 — The new season of The Price is Right, the hit ABC series about an out-of-work former cop who returns home to his hometown to pursue his passion for ice skating, has debuted in the U.K. The ABC comedy, based on the bestselling book by David Fincher, returns with an hour-long special on Tuesday night (8 p.m.
ET) and a second episode on Wednesday (10 p.t.).
It’s also coming to HBO in U.S. and Canada on Wednesday.
The series is based on Finchers best-selling book of the same name, which follows the life of a police officer who, after being out of work for 10 years, is offered a job by the police force in his hometown of Sun City, a small community of 2,000 residents in the Denver metro area.
In addition to Fincheres book, which is being adapted into a movie and has a script by David Simon, Fincher also directed and co-wrote the pilot, which premiered in February and garnered more than 1.6 million viewers, according to Nielsen.
Finch, a former FBI agent, returns to Sun City to help the police with an investigation into a deadly hit-and-run accident in his neighborhood.
“This is my favorite story in the book, so I was thrilled to be able to help tell it in the first place,” said Fincherty, who also directed the pilot.
He’s joined by his friend, actor-producer Tom Mison, who plays Detective Jack Miller, an out of control cop with a bad temper.
I just loved doing this, and it’s a perfect marriage of the world and the cop, Finchey said.
But what happens when the Sun City police department loses its way, and Jack and his partner, Detective Mark Wilson, are suddenly thrust into a dangerous situation?
Fingers crossed they’ll get a break in time to save the day.
Check out a clip from the pilot below:”I love it when they say they don’t want to be superheroes, they just want to do the right thing,” Finche said of the new season.
“I thought the book was an amazing, funny book, and I thought we could use a bit of that.
We’ve never really seen superheroes in our lives, and that was what I was hoping to find in the show.
I’m not sure what it is about this story, but I think it’s going to be something you’re going to enjoy.”
“We’ve never seen superheroes like that in our own city, but that was something I wanted to try to find,” he added.
And the new episode will be one of the most ambitious yet.
A trailer from the show, filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, is below: “It’s one of those shows that we’ve been working on for 10 or 12 years, and the last episode of season 1, ‘The Sun Devils’ episode, was the biggest thing that we had done in 10 or 11 years,” Fincey said.
“This is a new show that’s going through a lot of changes, and we’re going through the same thing as everybody else is.
It’s just the right balance.
We’re going for it, and there’s something for everyone.”
Ahead of the premiere, Finceys wife, Jennifer, took to Instagram to celebrate the return of her husband.
‘I love him more than anything,’ she captioned a photo of her smiling in the sun with a caption that read, “The price is right!
I love you too, man.”
‘We love you all, even if you’re mad,’ Finched Finches wife, Jennifer Finchet, tweeted on Sunday.
We love him more than anything.
