Trailers: Durham County (season 2) and The Pacific

What's coming in a few days and what's coming next year? In Canada, the second season (can't wait for the DVD since I don't have cable) of the award-winning Canadian TV series Durham County will premiere on July 13 at 9 PM (for Pacific Time, it's 8 PM) on The Movie Network, a premium cable network. As for The Pacific, a miniseries produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, I just know that it will premiere next year.

Returning for a second season, it appears that Durham County promises to be darker. Homicide Detective Mike Sweeney (Hugh Dillon) got newly promoted after he arrested his neighbour Ray Prager (Justin Louis) for serial killings in the first season. While Mike tries to keep his family together, Audrey (Helen Joy), his wife, asks for a divorce. As for Saydie (Laurence Leboeuf), his daughter, she tries to psychologically get back on track given that she came really close in the first season to getting killed by Ray. Moreover, at work, Mike develops a bond with Penelope Verity (Michelle Forbes), a troubled forensic psychiatrist. Finally, while investigating a new murder, Mike finds himself caught in a game of cat and mouse against a much more cunning and ruthless criminal.

By the way, I'd like to thank Diane over at TV, eh? for providing these informations.

Secondly, through Tom over at Plus Trailers, I heard about The Pacific, a new miniseries by HBO. From what I know for now, the miniseries follow three U.S. Marines - Robert Leckie (James Badge Dale), John Basilone (Jon Seda) and Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello) - through an intertwined story that brings us "from the first clash with the Japanese in the jungles of Guadalcanal to the triumphant return home after V-J Day". By the way, the miniseries is also the follow-up of Band of Brothers, which I really enjoyed.
