ROUGH CUT (NO NARRATION) DirecTV's Hollywood premiere of its new crime drama, "Rogue," certainly had the feel of a major red carpet event - and that was exactly the idea behind the project that hopes to break new ground in a television series. Stars Thandie Newton and Marton Csokas were among the stars showing up for Tuesday (March 26) night's premiere of the series that will be DirecTV's first venture into original programming, following up on their success with Emmy-winning series "Damages" and "Friday Night Lights." "Rogue" stars Newton as Grace Travis, a wife, mother of two, and the Bay area's best undercover detective. She's adept at transitioning between suburban life and the Oakland docks where she's been embedded for months with a criminal enterprise run by James "Jimmy" Laszlo and his sons, Max and Alec. Grace is abruptly pulled out of the field when her son, Sam, is killed in a drive-by shooting. The new series, which premieres on DirecTV on Wednesday (April 3), also stars Joshua Sasse, Matthew Beard and Leah Gibson.
