8 Things To Know About Shonda Rhimes’ New Show The Catch
Shonda Rhimes newest show The Catch made its debut on air only a few weeks ago and was met with generally positive reviews from critics. It’s still too early to tell with only a few episodes under its belt, but the show seems to have all the qualities and characteristics of a great Shondaland series! The Catch is an American mystery drama following a private investigator and her team as they hunt down her ex-finance after she finds out he’s a mastermind con artist and she’s been his most recent victim. Since the show is brand new, not much is known about it! So before you start binge watching, here’s 8 important things to know about the new Shonda Rhimes show, The Catch:
8. Intriguing Characters
The leading lady in the new series, The Catch is Mireille Enos as Alice. Fans might recognize her from the AMC drama The Killing as Detective Sarah Linden where she was the first female lead in that show as well. Enos also starred in the 2013 feature film World War Z with Brad Pitt! One of her most hidden and impressive talents is that she is quite the skilled martial artist! Enos has a black belt and practices Tae Kwon Do in her spare time. Wouldn’t want to be caught in the ring with her! Peter Krause will also have a lead role on the show opposite Mireille Enos as Alice’s con-artist boyfriend, Ben. Krause previously starred on the NBC series Parenthood and had a role on the HBO series Six Feet Under.
7. Romance, Romance and more Romance
Like many shows, especially ones associated with Shonda Rhimes, there is always a big romantic relationship at the center of it all like Meredith and Derek or Olivia and Fitz. The Catch will be similar, but won’t do that tireless game of getting together, breaking up, then getting back together only to break up again. In an interview with Yahoo TV, showrunner Allan Heinberg said: “I don’t believe in delaying gratification for the sake of keeping the show alive. In terms like, ‘Oh, we’re not going to get them together until the end of season 7’ — that was never a possibility for us. For me, it was about, what are the most surprising ways to get them together and keep them apart, and once they are together, how do they stay together?” Sounds like there are lots of twists and turns!
