Ashley Judd is going to star in a new TV drama, you guys. The synopsis of Salvation is as follows:
Salvation is described as a provocative drama set against the backdrop of a prominent Texas church where faith, family and corruption are explored in equal measure. The pilot centers on Jennifer Strickland (Judd), who has to defend her children, church and religious beliefs after her husband dies under mysterious circumstances.
Jennifer is one of those awesome, smart, no bullshit, socially savvy Southern women — a great mother, friend and wife to Spring Hill mega-church pastor Daniel Strickland. Having faithfully stood by her husband’s side, Jennifer’s world is rocked by his death. Devastated and facing pressure from all sides, Jennifer struggles to protect her family and the Spring Hill congregation. With faith guiding her, Jennifer steps up to the pulpit and takes over her husband’s church.
You realize what this means, right? She’s NOT CIA, she’s a PASTOR LOOKING OUT FOR HER CHURCH.
It’s pretty much going to be the most horrific show on television, and I will have to watch it and review it out of morbid curiosity, and it will probably make me completely insane but I’m willing to take one for the Mock Dock team, just like I did with Missing. (Which, by the way, if you missed my reviews of that dreadful series, just click here for a sample – it’s a review of the final episode.)
So yeah. This is happening. I have no idea when, but I’m hoping it’s a long time from now so I can begin planning for how I will have to start hating one night of every week.
Meantime, it’s a given that we’ll see plenty of this expression.
