"The Company," which focuses on the activities of the CIA during the Cold War, is scheduled to premiere in August. The six-hour limited series will join a pair of other new shows, the previously announced "Heartland" and "Saving Grace." The cable network also announced several new series in development Tuesday, including a project from Steven Bochco and an update of the 1960s series "The Saint."
Actors involved in the project include Michael Keaton, Chris O'Donnell, and Alfred Molina. Keaton played Batman in 1989's Batman and 1992's Batman Returns, O'Donnell played Robin in 1995's Batman Forever and 1997's Batman & Robin, and Molina played the villainous Doc Ock in 2004's Spiderman 2. I wonder if the actors will reference that somehow in this show. Perhaps Keaton's character could have a love of comic books, or O'Donnell could be an avid ornithologist.
