TV Series Based on Commack Native Makes Second Season Debut

"Necessary Roughness" returns for a second season on USA Today at 10 p.m. Tuesday.

A television series based on the life of a Commack native will return to the big screen to debut its second season Wednesday night. 

Newsday reports "Necessary Roughness," which is loosely based on the life of Commack native Donna Dannenfelser, will kick off its second season on USA Today at 10 p.m. Wednesdays.

The show follows a mother of two teens who works as a 'mental health clinician' for a fictional football team called "The Hawks." The main character Dani Santino, who is played by Callie Thorne, is trying to keep the team's wide receiver Terence King, played by actor Mehcad Brooks, together. 

Newsday reviewer Verne Gay reports that "Somebody up there loves "Necessary Roughness," as this second season pretty much proves... But compared to the other members of the slick quartet of returning USA hits this week."

Dannenfelser is involved in the show as the co-executive producer. She has written about it occasionally on her online blog, noting that season will have 16 episodes - where as the first season of "Necessary Roughness" only had 11 episodes.
