Title: Profit

Genre: Drama

First aired: 1996-04-08

Creator: David Greenwalt, John McNamara

Cast: Allison Hossack, Keith Szarabajka, Sherman Augustus, Jack Gwaltney, Jennifer Hetrick

Overview: Profit is an American television series that originally aired on the Fox Broadcasting Company in 1996 on Monday Night at 9:00 PM EST. The series was created by David Greenwalt and John McNamara, and stars Adrian Pasdar as the eponymous character Jim Profit. In February 2008, episodes began airing on Chiller in the USA. In October 2010, episodes began airing on CBS Action in Europe. Considered by many to be ahead of its time, the show is a precursor to more recent edgy television shows that include The Sopranos, Nip/Tuck, Dexter, Breaking Bad, and The Shield. Subversive themes stemming from the amoral actions of the central character made the show uncomfortable and unfamiliar viewing for mainstream audiences and Fox network affiliates, which ultimately led to the demise of the series. TV Guide ranked it #4 on their 2013 list of 60 shows that were "Canceled Too Soon", calling Profit "shockingly memorable".

"The line most people say they would never cross, is usually something they've already done when no one was watching." -- Jim Profit


This is the show that started it all, as far as "edgy" television entertainment is concerned. Shows that followed including The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, and etc. all owe their concept and creation to this little gem of a show. This one paved the way even though FOX cancelled it after only nine of the episodes were aired. I own the complete series on DVD. If you can stream it, do. If not, it's worth the investment to go pick up the series on Amazon. You'll never forget a moment of it.
