Maybe lost in all the summer film and TV excitement is “Somewhere Between,” an upcoming new ABC suspenseful thriller starring Paula Patton as Laura Price, a local news producer in San Francisco helping the police to hunt down a serial killer. After the killer strikes close to home, a twist of fate allows a “Groundhog Day”-type reset, and Laura relives the week prior to the string of murders. Although, unlike “Groundhog Day,” she only has one chance. Can she change fate and stop the killer?
ABC has announced that “Somewhere Between” will make its series premiere with a 2-night broadcast, starting with the episode “For One to Live” on Monday, July 24 at 10pm EST on ABC, while the second episode will air on Tuesday, July 25 at the same time – which will also be the series regular night and timeslot.
Also starring in the series, JR Bourne (“Teen Wolf”) plays Tom Price, Laura’s powerful yet sensitive husband who is also the city’s district attorney; Devon Sawa (“Nikita”) is Nico Jackson, a former cop turned private investigator; and newcomer Aria Birch plays Serena Price, the big-hearted, untamable daughter of Paula and Tom, who is always reaching out to others as a new friend.
The supporting cast is filled out by: Catherine Barroll as Grace Jackson, Imogen Tear as Ruby Jackson, Noel Johansen as Danny Jackson, Samantha Ferris as Captain Kendra Sarneau, Daniel Bacon as Glenn “Cupcake” Kupner, and Michael St. John Smith as Governor Preston DeKizer.
“For One to Live” was written by Stephen Tolkin and directed by Duane Clark.
The series is produced by Thunderbird Entertainment in association with ITV Studios America, with ITV Studios Global Entertainment handling international distribution. Based on a Korean format from SBS, the executive producers are Stephen Tolkin (“Brothers & Sisters”), Ivan Fecan, Joseph Broido, Tim Gamble and Matthew O’Connor.
No trailer for “Somewhere Between” yet, but with today’s news, I’m sure ABC will drop one very soon, which will be added to this post. We do have a first-look image (above) and a poster (below).
