As part of a recent Q&A, Peter Krause had this to say about ABC's Dirty Sexy Money: What are the chances of the show getting picked up in mid-May?
Peter Krause:
I have no idea, but I can't see how ABC would want to pass up the opportunity. I don't think there's any other show this year about a wealthy family like this. It harkens back to Dallas, Dynasty, Knots Landing, and, of course, it has a new twist. Craig Wright ( Six Feet Under) wrote it and the cast is great - Donald Sutherland, William Baldwin, Jill Clayburgh.... You play a lawyer who inherits his dad's job of representing a powerful, wealthy and dysfunctional family. Taking over the family business sounds a bit familiar.
Yeah, yeah, strangely the show begins with the death of my father. That's part of the reason I said no to the project at first. I thought it was a little too familiar, but I eventually came around. Your character, Nick George, is much different than [Six Feet Under's] Nate Fisher, right?
He is. He's got more of an agenda, whether it's visible at first or not.

Dirty Sexy Money will air Wednesdays at 10 pm/ET. Check out a video clip.
