Introducing the cast and creators of Outsiders at TCA, WGN chief Matt Cherniss made a point of tying the drama series about conflict between a small Appalachian town and the Farrell clan of “outsiders,”  to the current political climate. Not that TV critics needed to be nudged to ask a Trumpocalypse question of any given panel at this year’s winter confab.
“The show is very rich in thematic ideas, like family and technology versus human interactions, and going off the…
