DJE: David James Elliott
VM: Virginia Madsen
(ABC Clip Intro): Finally, a show about family values. That is, if your family values petty crime.
DJE: Hi, how you doing? David James Elliott.
(Clip): Open up! Police!
VM: So I play Cheryl West (Clip: Cheryl/Come on!) on the show "Scoundrels", and we are a blue collar crime family. And my husband, played by the amazing David James Elliott, gets sentenced to a long prison term.
(Clip): Police/We have a warrant to search this address.
DJE: My definition of a scoundrel is a lovable rogue, you know, and this is a family of lovable rogues. And certainly I may be the biggest, and hopefully I'm lovable.
VM: Oh, I think people are going to enjoy watching the show, because its really about a strong family.
(Clip): Cheryl/We do not invade people's homes.
DJE: It's so crazy, yet believable.
(Clip): Cheryl/Rise and shine! Cops!
VM: It's about a very close family, believe it or not. We have such incredible chemistry, not just David and I---naturally!, but the whole family. It's like we've become really close, and we've bonded during the filming experience.
