Heather Locklear has been known to "save" shows...see Melrose Place and Spin City, both of which were in danger of cancellation. Her track record for being in a show from the start isn't that great though...I think.
Also, wasn't this show supposed to be called The Hub, or was that something else?

It will probably be Melrose Place meets Spin City at LAX. Richard Kind as a Nuclear terrorist, Charlie Sheen as the mayor of Magaritaville. I'm sure somebody out there has a big 'ol pizza you could lay under it 'cause it sounds cheesy.
Ah, Summer, Fenway Park, Boston Red Sox and Beer.....

I doubt this show will last long, as is the problem for almost any other drama or for that matter any show put on TV in the USA anymore. I don't think it will be entertaining enough for many and will make those who are interested in airlines groan with pain over contrived and inaccurate scripts. I also fear that any storylines involving terror or security threats will not be appreciated and lose viewers, and if they get too much like soap operas, then lose another part of a potential audience. Worse still would be if another 9/11 leval of terror attack was to occur, it would probably end the show immediately. A program about LAX could succede if done as a 'reality' show, with a limited run, like Airline on A&E network (or like UK's Airport, although I haven't see any of that program).

Given that fact that NBC has it on Monday's schedule, it would seem a rather obvious attempt to "capture" A&E viewers with a clone program with the photogenic Ms. Locklear as the bait.
You can bet that they will use every bit of dramatic license they can to make the stories "work" and that factual accuracy (as always) will be forgotten, thus further perpetuating all the misconceptions that the traveling public seems to embrace, and often takes as fact. (Whaddya mean I can't take 12 carry-ons onboard--I saw someone do it on "LAX" last week, so why can I?...)

Okay. My episode two senario:
Superbowl 30something is being played aboard an A380. The plane is hijacked, of course, and the terrorists threaten to deliver the plane to Boeing if their demands are not met. They want twenty dollars, US. Airbus refuses to pay, claiming the plane is not wort it. Heather Locklear saves the day when she pulls up her skirt and pulls a twenty out of her stocking. What the hijackers do not know is that the twenty is counterfit.
The Giants go on to beat the Jets 2-0. Sort of makes you wish nobody paid the twenty dollars.
Cameras shoot pictures. Guns shoot people. They have the guns.

I'll watch it a few times I'm sure, but it's probably going to end up being yet another piece of garbage reality tv show on NBC.
Seriously, that's all that channel is these days....reality TV. NBC sold out big time and I frankly have a hard time watching it anymore. LAX may give even the airport a bad name. I guess we'll see. But i don't have my hopes up.
Likewise they are supposed to be doing this new "Hawaii" series, and it too, will probably be a far cry from the likes of Hawaii 5-O and Magnum, P.I.

Monday at 10 pm will be a sudden death slot against CBS' CSI Miami, which is already well established. That's in addition to Monday Night Football's loyal audience. Why not put it in a slot where it might have a chance to develop into something really enjoyable? I like the idea of a show about airports but the writers will be more concerned about who is bedding whom rather than real airport stories. Heather won't be able to save this one. I give it four shows until the plug is pulled.
