My daughter met her “Earl” a week ago. “Saving Grace” is one of the best TV shows ever. Not just because of Holly Hunter. But because of its concept…when you are at your lowest, somehow, someone enters your life for a moment.And in that moment, your life changes.
If you want to see talented actresses plying their craft these days basic cable might be a better bet than your local multiplex. Shows starring strong leading female characters are setting the ratings on fire in the cable world. In USA Today, Holly Hunter comments:
"The whole cable industry has been validated by that show's success," says Hunter, whose Grace, premiering July 23, will follow The Closer. "That it's a female lead has been great, not just for women but for everybody, because people understand that people want to watch women in the lead (roles)."
