Thurs 7/13: Hooten & The Lady (CW)
This action-packed Indiana Jones-style series has been highly successful overseas in England, but until now has been relatively unknown to American audiences. Luckily for us The CW acquired the program and will share the wealth. The story is built around the unlikely pairing of a British historical expert played by Ophelia Lovibond and an American maverick adventurer played by Michael Landes. The premiere episode involves a treacherous voyage into the Amazon to hunt for the lost camp of Victorian explorer Percy Fawcett.
