The USA Network has released the first trailer (all 30-seconds of it — hey, this is a TV trailer we’re talking about) for their upcoming “Burn Notice” original movie, “Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe”. As you may have guessed by the title, it’s a prequel of sorts that follows Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell, missing some familiar whites in his hair) during a mission in South America well before he met up with Michael Weston and cruised the beaches of Miami for sugar mommas.
“The Fall of Sam Axe” is directed by Campbell’s “Burn Notice” leading man, Jeffrey Donovan, and premieres on April 17th at 9/8c on the USA Network. The 30-second spot doesn’t give any hints of an appearance by Weston and his Irish gal pal, though I suspect they may show up at some point, if only in a coda to the TV movie.
Campbell co-stars with Kiele Sanchez (“30 Days of Night: Dark Days”), Chandra West, John Diehl, RonReaco Lee, and Pedro Pascal.
