ABC is getting ready for the release of its new series, "Life on Mars" which will hit the small screens on October 9 with the release of the show's promotional video. The footage is exceptional for its inclusion of Chris Cornell's brand new single "Ground Zero" which will appear on his November 4 solo album "Scream".
Lining up Jason O'Mara, Harvey Keitel, Jonathan Murphy, Michael Imperioli and Gretchen Mol as the main cast, "Life on Mars" is a cop drama adapted from the successful British series of the same name. The first episode is titled "Out Here in the Field" where NYPD Detective Sam Tyler is trying mightily to understand what's just happened to him and how he can get back "home" .
He finds himself in 1973 in the cultural hotbed of New York City during the tumultuous times of the Vietnam War, Watergate, women's lib and the civil and gay rights movements - without a cell phone or computer - suddenly hurtled back in time, ripped from 2008 after being hit by a car while chasing down a criminal.
