Bye bye Lady Mary, hello hard-drinking, ex-con Letty Dobesh. TNT has released a preview for “Good Behavior,” Michelle Dockery’s follow-up project to “Downton Abbey.” And Dockery is leaving her fancy frocks and social decorum long behind her.
Letty hasn’t been out of prison but for awhile, but it’s not long before she finds herself back in trouble. She overhears a hit man being hired for a job — killing a man’s wife — and feels obligated to tell the planned target.
The three-minute spot for the series begins with Letty knocking on the woman’s door and unceremoniously announcing,”There’s a man coming here to kill you.”
The footage that follows features a lot of sex (quasi-spoiler alert: her naked gymnastics partner is the aforementioned assassin) and self-help mantras. Letty combats her self-destructive tendencies in the hopes of doing the right thing and becoming a better person. But it seems as though this journey of self-improvement and self-acceptance has many bumps — and potentially fatalities — along the way.
“Good Behavior” premieres this summer on TNT.
