Still LifeLuciana as Rosa in two unaired episodes
"Still Life", a show about "life, love and family", was supposed to air on Fox in early 2005, but never made it to the small screen in the end. Hence, there's no information on, let alone pictures or clips of, Lucci's role (Rosa) in two later episodes.
Next to Lucci, interesting people involved included creator Marti Noxon (who did great work on "Buffy" and "Angel") as well as famous genre actors such as lead Jensen Ackles ("Dark Angel" and "Supernatural"), and co-stars Morena Baccarin ("Firefly" and "Stargate SG-1") and Susanna Thompson (the second Borg Queen).IMDb links

Jake's two younger sisters are trying to make sense of their lives without their brother. (TV.com
Although the show never aired anywhere, the pilot was distributed to journalists for promotional purposes. Luckily, it can be found on the internet, e.g. YouTube. I watched it just to get a feeling what "Still Life" was about and what it was like.
To be honest, even after watching the pilot I'm not sure what exactly the creators wanted their show to be about or to be like. Even after a pretty long exposition, the slowly paced episode lacks focus and gripping story elements.
Watching something from the distance (as the dead, narrating brother does) isn't that much fun for viewers after a while. Everybody's so subdued. Throw in heaps of clunky dialogue ("Being dead sucks, I can't kick my bro's ass") and mostly wooden performances, and you get an idea why the suits pulled the plug...
Wouldn't mind watching Lucci's eps, though, of course.
