Kelli Giddish and Jesse Metcalfe to Star in NBC’s Chase

Now this sounds like something to check out. NBC has picked up the Jerry Bruckheimer drama Chase starring former All My Children star Kelli Giddish and Passions eye candy Jesse Metcalfe, according to Broadcasting & Cable. Chase is “a fast-paced drama amid a game of cat-and-mouse as a team of U.S. marshals hunts down America's most dangerous fugitives.”

Since leaving their respective soaps each has spent time in primetime. Metcalfe had a memorable stint on Desperate Housewives as Gaby’s (Eva Longoria) lawn boy lover, while Giddish starred in FOX’s quickly cancelled Past Life.

Kelli Giddish in FOX’s Past Life

Kelli Giddish's  (ex Di, All My Children) new show Past Life is set to premiere on FOX in the midseason. From the trailer it reminds me of Fringe, FOX's hit new show from the 2008 season. I really liked Giddish on All My Children and was sorry to see her go. Hopefully Past Life is a success for her. What do you think of the Past Life trailer? Will you tune in?

FOX Picks up Pilot Starring AMC’s Kelly Giddish

She may not have been Dixie Cooney, but she just might be a primetime star. FOX has picked up the supernatural crime drama Past Life, featuring All My Children alum Kelly Giddish. Good for Giddish, I always liked her as Di. Even though the storyline stunk to high heaven, the stellar actress almost made me believe she could be JR's long lost mama, even though she and Jacob Young are like the same age—I said almost.
