"Smith," "The Nine" and "Eyes" to Air on DirecTV

smith.jpgFor those of you that expressed disgust over the cancellations of "Smith," "The Nine" and "Eyes," well... we have quite a little treat.

DirecTV just announced (via Variety) a deal with Warner Bros. TV that will bring all three cancelled dramas to the satellite provider's 101 Network. However, it's not just the opportunity to catch what you might have missed. The network says that all three series will air commercial-free, in high-def, and -- wait for it -- with never-before-seen episodes for all.

"Building on the success of Season 3 of 'Friday Night Lights' and 'Wonderland', we're adding three more shows that further build our portfolio of quality television you can't see anywhere else," says Eric Shanks, executive vice president of Entertainment at DirecTV.

Coming Wednesday, May 27 at 10:00 p.m. (EST), "The Nine" was an interesting drama delving into the lives of nine people after they live through a 52-hour hostage standoff. Created by the brother/sister team Hank Steinberg ("Without a Trace") and K.J. Steinberg ("Gossip Girl"), the ABC castoff starred Lourdes Benedicto, John Billingsley, Jessica Collins, Tim Daly, Dana Davis, Camille Guaty, Chi McBride, Kim Raver, Scott Wolf and Owain Yeoman.

"Smith" was CBS' short-lived Ray Liotta drama. His crew of professional criminals included Virginia Madsen, Simon Baker, Jonny Lee Miller, Amy Smart, and Shohreh Aghdashloo. It will start its DirecTV run on Wednesday, April 8 at 10:00 p.m.

Finally, "Eyes" will join the Wednesday lineup starting July 9 at 9:00 p.m. Kicking off the channel's Tim Daly block, this one-hour detective drama has the actor heading up a P.I. firm that uses high-tech gadgets and very little law-abiding means to make clients' problems go away. The show also starred Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon, A.J. Langer, Laura Leighton, Eric Mabius, Rick Worthy and Natalie Zea. -- Rachel Cericola
