"By giving you the book ends to the show"—that Clark will survive to the series's conclusion and will achieve great career success—"it takes away the element of life and death," Wootton says.

"It's not about whether he survives this experience, it's what kind of a human being is he at the end of it, what is the price that he paid, who around him has a target on them, and what's the price of success ultimately."

Golden Boys premieres on CBS with two special previews, on Tuesday, Feb. 26 and Tuesday, March 5 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT, both nights), moving to its regular Friday time period (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on March 8.
