ABC’s New Jailhouse Comedy Has an Amazing Name


ABC just bought a new half-hour “jailhouse lawyer comedy” about a disgraced Wall Street banker (serious question: are there any Wall Street bankers on television who are not disgraced?) who finds “a chance at redemption working for the female prosecutor who locked him up.” Okay, but here’s the fantastic part. The character’s name is Bobby Turner, and the show’s title is (wait for it) Turner Loose. Classic wordplay! Classic.
