    Simon's upcoming projects:
    SMITH is Simon's new TV series, premiering in September. It stars Simon Baker as "Jeff", Jonny Lee Miller, Ray Liotta and Virginia Madsen. The pilot was filmed in Pittsburgh in March, and the show has been picked up by CBS for the new season. Smith is: a drama about a close-knit crew of career criminals who plot and execute intricate and ingenious high-stakes heists across the country. Though Bobby Stevens (Liotta) appears to be a regular family man with a nine-to-five job, he's actually an expert thief who is seeking just two or three more big jobs so he can finally leave the business for a comfortable, lawful lifestyle with his wife, Hope (Madsen). Bobby's second family, his core band of partners, each bring their own areas of expertise to pulling off the biggest and most sophisticated armed robberies. The FBI is determined to catch the team but is most interested in capturing Smith, the crew's mysterious leader and the brains behind the entire operation. It remains to be seen whether Bobby will be able to extricate himself in time from the scores that give him such a rush, or if his retirement will be a forced one - behind bars.
    Watch for Smith on Tuesday nights in September!
