Saw the trailer over the weekend. Didn't pay much attention.

Today they were talking about it on the radio.

Look what she's driving-

No idea about the specifics, but did hear it's kind of a detective show.

Looks like a 69 Barracuda.

The more they use those cars on tv, the more demand they are going to have.

It has a wide stripe down the side but I didn't find any images showing the hood or sidemarkers (if present).
The seat looks like it could be '68.

What I heard on the radio is the show's premise is the main character (pictured above) knows when people are telling the truth. So its a detective story of sorts. She also is on the lam for something and so can not stick around any one place too long. Of course without a TV that's probably all I'll ever know. LOL

Those look like the "deluxe" seats for 69. Also the inside door lock location is as much a giveaway as the side markers. All 67s and 68s had the inside door lock all the way to the back of the front door which made it easier for a wire to pull it up from the outside and less convenient for the occupant.

69 was the only year the inside lock was moved forward to be about even with the seat back.

That would match the side accent strip then.
I was looking at the seat pattern and didn't look like '67 but it also didn't have the headrest and I can't tell if it has the shoulder straps. I know, optional 'til Jan 1

No headrests, so a 1969 model built in '68. Or just left out to look cleaner.

They remove the headrest’s for TV and Movies as it blocks the actors and camera shots from scene to scene.

I saw a rear shot on a promo for the show and it looked like a ‘69.
They remove rearview mirrors, too. But, unless one paid extra, headrests weren't installed on A & B-Bodies until 1Jan 1969. I had an early build '69 Super Bee that came without them.

Princess is right, you can tell a '69 by the location of the door lock pulls. The one pictured has them in the spot used by the '69s.

About 3/4 through ep1... Damn good.. with a really good cast.. And it's like a real show, no superheros or stupid **** :) Gonna watch the first 4 eps while working today
I had read that it was surprisingly a good show, supposedly like Columbo it's a "Mystery of the Week" series!!

Whoever made it is a big fan of 70's shows/movies (the best decade for both) Even the titles look like they were taken from Vanishing Point..

I like it. It seems to be a bit of a frankencuda. Looks like '69 doors and taillights with '67 grille, quarters, fenders and hood. I could be wrong but that's what it looks like to me.

...and rallye wheels it never came with.

Maybe 69 doors on a 67 body?

I don't see P L Y M O U T H on the header.

Can't tell if there's marker lights by the bumper or if that's dirt.

Not every car has to be original... my car is 100% untouched (cept me touching it) and i would much rather have that car even pieced together out of 3 years of cars :)

I've found most of what the guy with the big nose does is usually interesting, but the previews for this show just sounded lame to me

I had to look it up, apparently his character is called "casino boss"
I guess his role isn't too big, but he himself is famous enough the decided to put him in the trailers

As @Tsully mentioned, it is Adrian Brody
