Watch Rob Kazinsky in His New Series ‘Second Chance’
True Blood alum Rob Kazinsky (aka Ben aka Warlow) returns to the small screen tonight in the premiere of Second Chance, the new series on FOX.
Previously titled Frankenstein, the new series follows a 75-year-old former sheriff who is killed during a robbery at his son’s house, then brought back to life by mad scientists. Truly, that’s the premise. Rob plays the sheriff in his new, younger body while Tim DeKay plays his biologically older son. This should make for some interesting family dinners.
Seventy-five-year-old JIMMY PRITCHARD (guest star Philip Baker Hall, “Modern Family,” “Magnolia”) is a shell of his former self. A drinker, a womanizer and a father who always put work before family, Pritchard was forced to resign as L.A. County Sheriff for corrupt conduct more than a decade ago. Now, some 15 unkind years later, he is killed when he stumbles upon a robbery at the home of FBI Agent DUVAL PRITCHARD (Tim DeKay, “White Collar”), one of his two children. But death is surprisingly short for Jimmy, who is brought back to life by billionaire tech-genius twins MARY GOODWIN (Dilshad Vadsaria, “Revenge”) and her brother, OTTO (Adhir Kalyan, “Rules of Engagement”), founders of a social networking empire.
Resurrected as a younger, better version of himself, with physical abilities of which he never dreamed, a re-animated Pritchard (Rob Kazinsky, “True Blood”) is given a second chance at life. What will he do with it? Will he try to repair the damage he did to his family? Will he embrace a new sense of purpose or fall prey to old temptations?
