...Or at least stay out of prison. Scoundrels is a new drama/comedy on ABC about the West family, a family of criminals living in Palm Springs. Based on the New Zealand TV series entitled Outrageous Fortune.

Starring Virginia Madsen as Cheryl West who comes to terms with her husbands long prison sentence by forcing her family to go "straight." A feat that may seem more troublesome than not as the characters in the show seem to have extremely different personalities which could make for an interesting show. Who knows if the show will last the Summer heat, whether it be from more popular shows or people just not being at home to watch. Here is an interesting clip of the youngest daughter Hope, played by Vanessa Marano, blackmailing her way out of attending school.
