Last week when it was announced that ITV had bought Pushing daisies, there were a couple of other purchases that slipped under the my radar. One was a CBS drama that ITV say will play out in primetime on ITV1, and at other times on ITV3.
Swingtown (cue press release voice):-
peeks into the shag-carpeted suburban homes of the 1970s to find couples reveling in the sexual and social revolution that introduced open marriages, women’s liberation and challenged many conventional wisdoms.
It stars Jack Davenport, and I liked him in Coupling and the other things that he did. I didn’t watch This Life (past my bedtime) but I heard he was alright in that too. Watch a preview of Swingtown below..
