NBC is offering the pilot episode of its new legal drama “Conviction” for free on the iTunes Music Store nearly two weeks before the show makes its network series premiere. NBC is also offering a music video by The Gabe Dixon Band and a behind-the-scenes look at the show. The hour-long show, currently being heavily promoted on air, will debut on the network on Friday, March 3.

“This is the stunning new drama from the creator of Law & Order, offering viewers a provocative look into the cases and lives of New York Assistant District Attorneys,” reads a description of the show. “They’re young and over their heads, pushing to prove themselves in the world’s biggest city and most tumultuous courtrooms. But whatever they lack in experience, they more than make up for in their passion to make their case.”

I checked out the show. Looks like it will be a pretty good new drama. Not as good as law and order but still okay.

I can see the pitch meeting now:

“It’s like ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ meets ‘Law & Order.’ Actually, it’s exactly like that. Because we are a network that takes risks.”

“If you give us a couple more weeks, I’m sure we could work in an ‘American Idol’ element…Maybe the viewers could vote off the Assistant D.A. they don’t like!”

The annoying part is I have been watching the Olympics religiously, which means I have seen the commercials for this show roughly 2.7 billion times.

Too bad you can’t download it if you live outside the US. Useless! (Well for us who live in the rest of the world anyway..)

Why does there always have to be someone that points out that they can’t download something in their country?

Yes, we get it. You can’t get things from different countries iTunes stores. Get over it. It’s the way it is. Shut up already.

If the story does not have the proviso that the content is only available in US store it is misleading and very frustrating to find out it is not available after clicking the link.

The only forum to note that these are not available are news sites like this.

I personally wish there was content on the Canadian Music store not available on US Store - then there would be a lot of irate customers complaining !!
