Another mini series stretched to a full season. Expect lots and lots of filler and convoluted plots (see Revenge). However, I anticipate really good performances from this show.

Are you telling me they're going to allow non-stylized exhibits of human emotion on network TV? People still cry alone in the bathroom?

Looks great! Although it seems like it would fit better on a cable network.
