Cinderella on TV: The Finder

I missed posting about another fairy tale inspired TV show last week. The new series, The Finder, from the producers of Bones, aired its third episode, A Cinderella Story this past Thursday. It was a playful and deadly play on the Cinderella story, heavily referencing the tale but still an interesting interpretation with an unexpected twist. You can watch the show on Fox and Amazon if you live in the release zones.

Simple plot description follows but I have put a full spoiler plot description at the bottom of this post:

A missing shoe leads to an unlikely fairy tale ending.

A few more previews:

Spoiler ALERT!

Here's the full Cinderella plot from the episode:

Leo and Walter help a math geek find a woman he met at a bar who left behind a ruined note and a shoe as the only clues to finding her. At first they think they are on a romantic hunt for a Cinderella who may be in danger. Eventually they realize they are hunting for a femme fatale/serial killer who baits men by leaving shoes and notes behind, ultimately killing them in her search for Prince Charming.

  1. I have no words. Does American TV hate women *more* than British TV now? Wow. Wow.
