The Big C

<p>Laura Linney in 'The Big C.'</p>

Showtime is making quite a name for itself airing 30 minute 'dark comedies,' which may actually be better described as 30 minute dramas.  We don't know that "The Big C" will fall into that category, but the series is about Laura Linney's character's diagnosis of, and battle with, cancer (that would be the big C).  Such a description for a series does give us the idea that maybe it isn't exactly wholly comedic material.  But, we do think of Linney as being a very versatile actress and Oliver Platt (who plays her husband) as a very versatile actor.  So many questions about how the series may go.  Only one thing to do - tune in and find out.
