Yesterday at the NBC UpFronts, theTVaddict had the chance to ‘play paparazzi’ for a few moments and snap this photo of NBC’s newest star Michelle Ryan. Needless to say, having witnessed the audience’s reaction to the clips shown at yesterday’s event, Ryan better get used to walking down red carpets as she’d destined for stardom. You heard it here first folks — Michelle Ryan — television’s ‘next big thing.’
Ryan stars as Jaime Sommers, a bartender and surrogate mom who’s life pretty much couldn’t get any harder. But when a devastating car accident leaves her at death’s door, Jaime’s only hope of survival is through a cutting-edge, top-secret technology that comes at a hefty price.
With a whole new existence and a debt to repay, Jaime must figure out how to use her extraordinary abilities for good, while weighing the personal sacrifices she will have to make. Ultimately, it’s Jaime’s journey of self-discovery and inner strength that will help her embrace her new life as…The Bionic Woman.
BIONIC WOMAN comes from the brilliant minds of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA executive producer David Eick and KIDNAPPED mastermind Jason Smilovic. The preview clips shown at yesterday’s UpFront were quite frankly fantastic, and this TV Addict cannot wait to watch Michelle Ryan kick some serious bionic butt. Don’t believe me, check out the video previews after the jump. ‘
