Windfall on NBC
Windfall indulges viewers’ most extravagant aspirational fantasies about overnight wealth — Champagne, travel, parties, shopping and new cars — but still feeds the human impulse to begrudge and seek solace in others’ misfortunes. It’s a full-service wish fulfillment. — The New York Times
I watched the first two episodes of Windfall back in April but kept forgetting to post about it. Anyway, Windfall is about a group of friends, neighbors and acquaintances that win a huge lottery jackpot and you watch their lives unfold and change as a result. For what it’s worth, it’s basically a supernatural-less Lost. I am totally was all over this show because of the cast that I’m very familiar with — Luke Perry (90210), Sarah Wynter (24), Jason Gedrick (The Last Don, Boomtown), and D.J. Cotrona (Skin). More screencaps in the gallery! Windfall premieres tonight at 9PM ET/PT on NBC. Check it out!
NBC is sure to make good use of its leading men, showing off former
90210 hunk Luke Perry and newcomer(ish) D.J. Cotrona.
