From the little network that could, the CW, comes a new show that everyone's raving about. It hales back to the time of old classy family shows - nothing like the frothy 90210's that the CW loves to churn out these days.
After spending her life bouncing from one foster family to another, 15-year-old Lux has decided to become an emancipated minor. Her journey through the legal maze leads Lux to her biological father, 30-something Nate "Baze" Bazile, who lives like an aging frat-boy and is astonished to learn he has a daughter. Lux is equally astonished to learn that her mother is Cate Cassidy, a star on local radio, along with her boyfriend, Ryan Thomas. When a judge grants temporary custody of Lux to Baze and Cate, they agree to make a belated attempt to give Lux the family she deserves.
The cast is carefully chosen, the critics are impressed, and all that's left is for the general public to decide whether Life UneXpected is worthy of the fanfare. It's not often a mid-season show gets this kind of publicity, so let's hope that it makes the most of the opportunity.
Keep checking back - there will be many more spoilers to come if this lil show takes off the ground.
