Tuesday“The Forgotten’’ (ABC)
Missing persons procedural
Stars: Christian Slater, Reiko Aylesworth (pictured)
The concept: Teaming with TV mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer, Slater plays an amateur detective helping the cops look for missing people. He’s also searching for his lost daughter.
Our take: Slater’s hoping his 2008 flop, “My Own Worst Enemy,’’ will be one of the forgotten. This sounds like “Without a Trace’’ meets “Cold Case,’’ with a dash of “The Mentalist,’’ which may mean it’s treading on worn-out turf. Plus, no pilot available, often a bad sign.
Alternate name: “Christian Resurrection’’
Grade: No preview available (Sept. 22)
