This is such a weird show that I wonder if it can survive.
When a show has so many different things going on, such as
too many plots and characters, then it usually fails.
Wikipedia lists this as a black comedy, but I would call
it a drama. It has very little humor. It's an okay drama.
Ezra is a young guy in love with his new wife, Ava, but
then she leaves him and steals all of his money. His family
is well off, and he works for them, so he's more upset about
losing her than anything else. Ava is a con woman, who works
with a group of con artists. They are the other main stars
of this show. Ezra is a nice guy, but naive. Some of his
family members are real jerks.
Rob Heaps does a good
job as Ezra, and Inbar Lavi is outstanding as Ava (she uses
several different names in her cons). Veteran actor Brian
Benben plays another conman. Uma Thurman also has a
recurring role. It's a very interesting show and did draw me
in. I don't know if I have time to keep watching it, though,
to see what happens.
BRAVO MEDIA LAUNCHES NEW SCRIPTED SERIES "IMPOSTERS"
IN ASSOCIATION WITH UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS ON
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 7 AT 10PM ET/PT
and Rob Heaps Lead Cast
Golden Globe Winning
Actress Uma Thurman to Appear in Guest Starring Role
NEW YORK, NY - November 29, 2016 - Bravo Media
sets the premiere date for its new original,
scripted series "Imposters" (previously announced as
"My So Called Wife"), debuting Tuesday, February 7
at 10pm ET/PT and produced by Universal Cable
Productions. The series follows Maddie (Inbar Lavi,
"Gang Related"), a persona shifting con-artist who
is as beautiful as she is dangerous, leaving her
unwitting victims tormented when they realize they
have been used and robbed of everything - including
their hearts. But things get complicated when her
former targets, Ezra (Rob Heaps, "Frankenstein and
the Vampyre: A Dark and Stormy Night"), Richard
(Parker Young, "Suburgatory") and Jules (Marianne
Rendón) team up to track her down. While pursuing
her newest mark, Maddie meets a potential love
interest, Patrick (Stephen Bishop, "Being Mary
Jane"), which threatens to derail her assignment,
much to the chagrin of her mysterious boss, The
Doctor. Meanwhile, her dejected past lovers manage
to take control of their new realities, not
realizing that in their quest to confront her,
they'll have to face their own truths and find new
versions of themselves along the way. For a sneak
peek at the new series, please visit:
In the series premiere, newlyweds Ava (Maddie)
and Ezra's blissful marriage shatters when he
discovers his sweet wife has disappeared with all
their money and enough sensitive information to
destroy his family if he turns to the authorities
for help. As a devastated Ezra reels and searches
for answers, Maddie expertly prepares for her next
con with her trusted cohorts, Max (Brian Benben,
"Dream On") and Sally (Katherine LaNasa, "The
Campaign"). When Richard shows up at Ezra's door in
search of his perfect wife Alice, they realize
they've been fooled by the same woman and join
forces in the hope of finding her to seek revenge.
Golden Globe winning actress Uma Thurman will
guest star with a story arc spanning several
episodes. Uma will play Lenny Cohen, the ultimate
fixer, making her debut in the episode airing
February 21, 2017. When the reclusive ring-leader of
a group of con artists needs to keep his employees
in line or eliminate an enemy, there is only one
person for the job - the lethal, articulate and
mysterious Lenny Cohen.
