Editorial Reviews

The producers of Saving Grace reveal how they landed Holly Hunter, and why the show can't be shot in Oklahoma City.

This Paley Center live event honors Saving Grace, a dramatic series about Oklahoma City police detective Grace Hanadarko, who's troubled by external and internal demons before she's "saved" by the angel Earl. Craig Hitchcock (executive director, The Paley Center for Media, Los Angeles) welcomes the audience.

Cynthia Littleton (deputy editor, Variety) moderates the following panelists: series creator/executive producer Nancy Miller; and cast members Holly Hunter (Grace Hanadarko), Laura San Giacomo (Rhetta Rodriguez), Bailey Chase (Butch Ada), Lorraine Toussaint (Kate Perry), Dylan Minnette (Clay Norman), Gregory Cruz (Bobby Stillwater), Kenny Johnson (Hamilton Dewey), and Yaani King (Neely Lloyd).

Panelists touch on such topics as: what drew big-screen veteran Hunter to television; how Miller pitched the show's angel-based concept to networks; and why the show isn't shot on location in Oklahoma City.

Questions from the audience then lead to a discussion of the following topics: how Grace has changed due to her recent moral choices; the effort not to make the program into "another police show"; and Hunter's behind-the-scenes contributions to the series.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

I loved this series. I love Holly Hunter. I watched every episode from the beginning. What I was expecting from this gathering was a lot of interaction with ALL members of the cast. After about 30 minutes, I had to stop watching. The moderator spends most of the time talking with the creator of Saving Grace. There is some interaction with Holly Hunter. There is maybe one question to each member of the cast. I love Kenneth Johnson and Bailey Chase. As of 30 minutes in, they had both spoken once. This must have been the moderator's first time at moderating.

I was disappointed.

If you haven't gotten enough of a show like Saving Grace, the opportunity to view a Q&A sessions with cast and creator is great. It's a typical Q&A, with a moderator asking questions, followed by questions from the audience.

Apparently the Q&A was filmed in early in season 3, before Neely's name was revealed, and before the producers found out the show was being cancelled. It's not the most dynamically moderated Q&A.

Not surprisingly, the majority of the time is Holly Hunter's responses, followed by Nancy Miller (who often doesn't complete her thoughts in the Q&A, which can be frustrating). There are only occasional comments from the rest of the cast in attendance (Kenny Johnson, Lorraine Toussaint, Dylan Minnette, Laura San Giacomo, Bailey Chase, Yaani King, and Gregory Cruz -- who didn't get an opportunity to speak). Leon Rippy wasn't in attendance.

Fans of the series might not get much out of it, as much of the discussion is covered in interviews and other promotional pieces about the show. There is one particular response from Hunter that's worth watching, where she elaborates on opportunities for such intense (and flawed) female characters on TV

If you're thinking about purchasing, keep in mind the product description clearly states, "this product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media" -- it is not of standard commercial production value.

This is only one of many Q&As from the Paley Media Center, so you might want to search on Amazon for other shows (use the phrase "Live at the Paley Center"). At the time of this writing, these were available free on Amazon Prime Instant Video.

Show is dominated by comments from Holly and Nancy. All other say nothing or virtually nothing. The "moderator" from Variety is an idiot. A 5 year old could come up with better questions.
