This sparkling drama follows top private investigator Alice Vaughan, who discovers that the conman that she’s been chasing for months just happens to be her own fiancé. Alice is smart, sexy and not to be messed with, so it comes as no surprise that consciously uncoupling from the man she gave her heart to isn’t an easy business.

Here are a few more reasons why you need The Catch in your life right now…

 

1. The cast is an ensemble of drama giants

What do you get if you bring together Sarah from The Killing (Mireille Enos) as Alice and Nate from Six Feet Under (Peter Krause) as the devious Benjamin, along with Penny from Lost (Sonya Walger) and Sam from Life On Mars (John Simm) in supporting roles? No, not an undertaker investigating a time-travelling jet plane (although that sounds pretty good) – you get the cast of The Catch.

 

2. It’s produced by the powerhouse that is Shonda Rhimes

If you’re not one of Shonda’s 1.78 million Twitter followers, let us better acquaint you. One of TIME magazine’s 100 People Who Help Shape the World, she created Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal, and exec produced How To Get Away With Murder. We bow down. She also brought Allan Heinberg (who wrote Wonder Woman) on board The Catch, as well as show creator Helen Gregory, who started her career on a little show called Byker Grove! Why aye, man.

 

3. It’s super stylish

From the clever storylines to the way Mireille Enos stalks around the set, this is a show you take seriously. Imagine mixing Faye Dunaway and Rene Russo’s roles from the two versions of The Thomas Crown Affair and you get the idea.

4. It’s not a simple tale of cops and robbers

This is more cat and mouse, with added feelings. But to find out who is playing with who, you’ll just have to sit down and watch.

 

5. All in all, The Catch is pretty girl power

Honestly, Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot must be quaking in their boots with the likes of Alice Vaughan available for hire. We know who we’d want running our investigation.
