James Wolk has insisted that viewers should not be misled by the "sexy" advertising campaign for his new show Lone Star.

The actor told TV Guide that the new Fox series will focus on character-based drama.

"It's fun, it's sexy, it's different, it's dangerous, but it's also really real," he claimed. "It's a character study. This show is Catch Me If You Can meets Friday Night Lights meets Mad Men."

Wolk suggested that future episodes will establish a balance of light and darker aspects.

"I haven't seen the episodes past the pilot, but I have great faith that [the producers] will find a way to both make it sexy... but also make it clear that this is a real character study of real people," he said. "I think that is their greatest challenge right now."

He added: "My job is to play the character. Play it true and portray him in the most honest light. The [producers] will then take that and they will set a tone."

Lone Star premieres tonight at 9/8c on Fox.
