Karen Sisco (2003) is the TV adaptation of the 1996 book Out of Sight by Elmore Leonard, starring Carla Gugino in the title role. The series was created and developed by Elmore Leonard and Jason Smilovic (Bionic Woman 2007, My Own Worst Enemy), based on a character who also appears in the 1998 Steven Soderbergh’s movie Out of Sight (starring George Clooney and Jennifer Lopez), and in the second episode of the third season of Justified, as Karen Goodall.
Karen Sisco (Carla Gugino) is a U.S. Federal Marshal based on Miami’s Gold Coast, who must track down fugitives while dealing with the underbelly of South Beach nightlife and Palm Beach high life. She occasionally gets advice from her father Marshall Sisco (Robert Forster), a retired officer from the Miami-Dade Police Department, turned private investigator, who is Karen’s counselor and confidant.
Some geniuses at ABC Network decided to cancel the show and the airing after seven episodes (10 were produced). The last three were broadcast later on the USA Network (NBC). And we’re still waiting for the DVD release….
