"From multicamera sitcoms to serialized dramas to creepy miniseries, family films to R-rated thrillers, supporting roles to star turns, Carla Gugino's career has been varied and difficult to pin down," says Daniel Fienberg. "For a small but knowledgeable subset of viewers, though, the actress' best work was on 2003's short-lived ABC drama Karen Sisco. I've always insisted that there's an alternate world in which Karen Sisco was a major hit and earned Gugino a handful of Emmy nominations, and yet another world in which the character's appearance on FX's Justified launched a lucrative spinoff. Instead, in our world, I've been left wondering why Hollywood hasn't found Gugino more parts in a similarly hard-boiled, tough-talking, Elmore Leonard-esque vein. Cinemax's Jett comes close." Written and directed by Sebastian Gutierrez, who's been in a long-term relationship with Gugino in real life, Jett "feels like an adaptation of a long-running franchise of crime novels that doesn't actually exist, filled (sometimes to excess) with suave crime lords, verbose henchmen, ambitious heists, steamy sex and unexpected double-crosses, and anchored by an enigmatic and intriguing lead character," says Fienberg. "Jett is probably a little too derivative for its own good, but through five of its first nine episodes, it marks another fun-but-not-too-deep entry in Cinemax's stable of expanded B-movie genre pieces. And it's a great showcase for Gugino."
