CBS GIVES VIEWERS A SECOND LOOK
AT “JERICHO,” “SWINGTOWN” AND “WOLF LAKE”

 

Acclaimed Dramas Now Available for Streaming On CBS.com

 

LOS ANGELES, July 23, 2013 – What happens when residents of a peaceful Kansas town experience a nuclear disaster and, left isolated, must fend for themselves? Or when two generations of friends and neighbors in suburban Chicago explore new freedoms during the culturally transformative 1970s? Or when an outsider finds himself in a mysterious – and dangerous – Pacific Northwest town where the residents can shape-shift into wolves?

 

Viewers can find out during CBS.com’s “Second Look” feature this summer, in which all episodes of three CBS dramas – JERICHO, SWINGTOWN and WOLF LAKE – are available for streaming on CBS.com.

 

“JERICHO, SWINGTOWN and WOLF LAKE pushed the boundaries, exploring some of the most popular themes in television today: post-cataclysmic life, the social and cultural mores of a generation, and the Supernatural,” said Jeff Grossman, Vice President of Content and Product Strategy for CBS Interactive. “Over the years, fans have told us they’d like to experience these shows again, and through CBS.com, we’re able to resurface programming that not only captivated viewers but broke new ground.”

 

The episodes, which are now available at CBS.com, include:

 

JERICHO

JERICHO follows the residents of a peaceful Kansas town when a nuclear disaster hits, plunging the residents into chaos, leaving them completely isolated and wondering if they're the only Americans left alive. Fear of the unknown propels the town of Jericho into social, psychological and physical mayhem when all communication and power is shut down. But in this time of crisis, as sensible people become paranoid, personal agendas take over and well-kept secrets threaten to be revealed, the most unlikely heroes will emerge.

 

WOLF LAKE

WOLF LAKE is a Supernatural drama about a small Pacific Northwest town where the residents can shape-shift into wolves. John Kanin, a Seattle cop, arrives in Wolf Lake in search of his fiancée, who has mysteriously disappeared right before his eyes following a bloody attack. As an outsider, Kanin delves further into the intrigue of Wolf Lake, he realizes that there is more to this beautiful, dangerous town than meets the eye and he intends to find out what it is.

 

SWINGTOWN

SWINGTOWN, from the director of "Big Love" and "Rome," traces two generations of friends and neighbors as they forge intimate connections and explore new freedoms in 1970s suburban America. The show portrays the ever-shifting “swing” of the pendulum that reflected the change in America's collective value system — morally, politically and socially.  After moving to an upscale lakeside Chicago suburb in July of 1976, Susan and Bruce Miller must confront temptation in the form of their provocative new neighbors, Tom and Trina Decker, while not abandoning their old friends, Janet and Roger Thompson. As the adult couples evaluate whether to embrace or avoid newfound personal freedoms, the curious Miller and Thompson children begin to discover and assert their own morality and sexual identities as they come of age in a world on the precipice of change.  In a shifting social climate — defined by its music, fashion and style — everyone in SWINGTOWN is confronted with personal choices, experimentation and varying attitudes.

    Happy about Wolf Lake :)

  • DanaK

    Took them long enough.

  • Marcos

    I used to be obsessed with Swingtown. Sad it only lasted 1 season

  • BigBrotherFan

    Wolf Lake is one of my all time best TV series of all time! Such a shame it was before it’s time.

  • Wright

    Bring back Jericho…and Wolf Lake. Who cares about Swingtown.Jericho deserves to come back.

  • Nick

    If I haven’t owned Swingtown on DVD since it went off the air I’d probably stream it. Instead I’ll just pull out my DVD and put on my own little marathon. I love that show. The sad thing is, CBS prematurely moved it to Friday night, and then cancelled it. What’s even sadder is the fact that even on Friday, it was pulling the same numbers as Blue Bloods. If this were airing today, it would probably be a hit.

  • Greg

    Maybe with enough interest from the streaming that CBS will bring back one of these series with new episodes. The new type of deals for shows like Under the Dome and Arrested Development gives a new hope to fans who love a series that was canceled too early. Swingtown was a favorite of mine.

    “What’s even sadder is the fact that even on Friday, it was pulling the same numbers as Blue Bloods. If this were airing today, it would probably be a hit.”

    Comparing rating from a show in 2008 to a show in 2013 is folly. Year to year decreases in network TV viewers would surely not give the show anything approaching a 1.3 on a Friday today.

    Did any of these conclude well enough? Or at least have the writers conclude it off screen, in a blog post?
    Could these be treated like mini series like 1 season of American Horror Story?

    I don’t want to have storylines & characters underdeveloped & not really wrapped up.

  • Tired of the big three

    Jericho was the last CBS show I watched live. The sad thing is during its 1st season did as well as NCIS. I have read many articles that said the 1st 3 years were mediocre at best. Network television wonders why viewing is down they have no one but themselves.
