News & Interviews for The Wrong Mans: Season 1
A geeky office worker picks up a ringing telephone at the scene of a car crash and sets in motion a crazy-funny mystery.
The series' absurdly complex plot and genre clichés are clearly tongue-in-cheek, but we still find ourselves rooting for the heroes and getting caught up in the suspense. Light and witty, the series is the perfect time filler.
It may not have the sharpness of a Wright effort, but the show is deeply committed to its world-colliding premise, and trots out a host of serious actors.
If the plot had been at all predictable, this melange of styles could have been self-indulgent. But the story kept surprising us.
Average Joes get pulled into violence, accidental espionage.
