Airdate: The Beast

the-beastHere’s a show that’s going to be a curiosity for all the wrong reasons.

ABC2 will screen Patrick Swayze’s latest project, the cop series The Beast later this month.

Swayze plays Charles Barker, a veteran FBI agent who goes undercover, gaining the confidence of criminals and setting them up for stint in prison. His methods often border on being illegal and unsettle his rookie partner, played by Australian Travis Fimmel.

The reviews for Swayze have been excellent, some calling it the best of his career. Some speculated that his performance may have been fuelled by his battle with cancer.

The show, produced for cable network A&E in the US, has already been cancelled.

Updated:  But it will screen in Australia from 8:45pm Tuesday August 25th on ABC2. (ps. how Starsky & Hutch is that photo!?)
