Brian Bosworth - Stone Cold

Retroist Presents: Fox TV Ad For Lawless (1997)

Brian Bosworth was doing pretty good for himself in the 90s. He was a famous NFL player and he had a modestly popular film with Stone Cold back in 1991. So you can understand why Fox decided to give him a shot at his own TV series where he would play a maverick detective that gets into all types of shenanigans…involving things blowing up…because it was the 90s.

But judging from the ratings of the Pilot episode the TV network canceled the series flat out. At least we have the TV commercial though.
