On June 17, Meadowlands premieres on Showtime. I hadn’t heard anything about this series, but it looks pretty great. For one thing, these pictures are intriguing, not just because the women have intense gazes but because the atmosphere is wonky and eerie:

Meadowlands is co-produced by Channel 4, which is based in the U.K. Apparently it has already premiered there. There are only eight episodes, but they sound jam-packed:
Meadowlands focuses on a family trying to escape its past while confronting an even more uncertain future. The series picks up as Danny and Evelyn Brogan, along with their two teenage kids, enter a witness protection program. Meadowlands appears to be a suburban paradise where the Brogan family can begin to start a new life. But they soon realize that it’s not so easy to escape the past and their safe haven becomes a world of paranoia and psychological intrigue with surprises around every corner.
OK, beloved British members of AfterEllen.com: Have you seen Meadowlands? Is it worth TiVo-ing?
