Sorry, fans of the NBC 'American Dreams'; I didn't mean to get your hopes up......

British actor and dress-wearing Eddie Izzard has a new drama in the works with F/X. It's called 'Low Life', in which Izzard will star as the head of a family of con-artists who decided to bring an end to their family tradition. Instead, they decide to finally settle down and see what that "American dream" thing is all about.

Here's what I'd love to see happen, from a TV Universe point of view - the family's surname should be "Timson". The Timsons are the family that proved to be so rewarding to the financial status of Horace Rumpole, who was played by the late great Leo McKern. The barrister had to defend many a Timson family member who stood in the docks of the Old Bailey, in the books and the TV series about 'Rumpole Of The Bailey'.
