Ten Days in the Valley (ABC) -- S: Kyra Sedgwick -- Premieres 10/1/17






SERIES PREMIERE

KYRA SEDGWICK RETURNS TO TELEVISION IN THE THRILLING CHARACTER-DRIVEN MYSTERY 'TEN DAYS IN THE VALLEY,' SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1, ON ABC


"Day 1: Fade In" -- Emmy Award-winning actress Kyra Sedgwick ("The Closer") stars in "Ten Days in the Valley" as Jane Sadler, an overworked television producer and single mother in the middle of a fractious separation. When her young daughter goes missing in the middle of the night, Jane's world - and her controversial police TV show - implodes. Life imitates art: everything is a mystery, everyone has a secret and no one can be trusted. "Ten Days in The Valley," a thrilling character-driven mystery, will make its series premiere with the episode "Day 1: Fade In" on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.

Also starring in the series are Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ("Lost") as Detective Bird, a strategically non-judgmental maverick investigator leading the search for the missing girl; Kick Gurry ("Sense8") as Pete, Jane's ex, a charismatic, unpredictable music producer and recovering drug addict, seeking joint custody of their daughter; Erika Christensen ("Parenthood") as Ali, Jane's younger half-sister, who is loving, capable and pragmatic, but her own struggle to conceive - and complex relationship with Jane - will cause her to question many of Jane's choices; Josh Randall ("Quarry") as Tom, Ali's husband, an ambitious, unemployed journalist, desperate for a break; Felix Solis ("The Good Wife") is Commander Gomez, presiding over the LAPD Detective Bureau with the imperiousness and confidence of an oligarch; Francois Battiste ("The Normal Heart") as Gus, an undercover narcotics detective who is also Jane's confidante, lover and her off-the-record source behind the "fictional" stories she's telling on her new "Internal" TV series; Malcolm-Jamal Warner ("Major Crimes") as Matt, Jane's right-hand man and head writer on the TV series who has his own demons; and Abigail Pniowsky ("Arrival") plays the daughter, Lake.

Guest cast: Ali Liebert as Nickole, Bird's tough-ass colleague; Marisol Ramirez as Jane's long-suffering nanny; Emily Kinney as Casey, Jane's upbeat young assistant who desperately wants to look up to her boss as a role model; Currie Graham as Henry, the charismatic yet demanding producing-director at the helm of Jane's TV series; Beth Triffon as Mackenzie, Jane's script coordinator and a vulnerable romantic; Ella Thomas as Isabel, the complicated star of Jane's show; Ali Stroker as Tamara, a writer and crack researcher in Jane's writer's room; Nelson Lee as Sheldon, the laid-back yet unpredictable drug supplier who launders his drug money through a popular taco truck business; Mark L. Young as PJ, a street-smart neighborhood drug dealer who dreams of becoming a writer; and Jeff Branson as Dominic, a narcotics detective, based on Jane's police informant, on the TV series.

The series, from Skydance Television's Uncharted label, was created and written by Tassie Cameron ("Mary Kills People," "Rookie Blue") and executive produced by Cameron, Kyra Sedgwick, Jill Littman, Sherry White, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Marcy Ross. Lionsgate oversees international distribution.

10 episode season

I will give this a try because of Sedgwick.

I can only assume this will be five times better than 2 Days In The Valley.

It'll need to be at least 12 times better than the movie to be worth watching.

(But, yes, I see what you did there )

Early ratings are weak, though it's lead-in "Shark Tank" did respectably.

I was curious to know if the series had anything to do with the movie. I saw the movie way back when, though I don't remember much about it.

No, it's an entirely different story.

Here's the storyline of 2 Days In The Valley via IMDB:

John Herzfeld deftly welds together a multitude of subplots-- a loser hitman and a cool assassin involved in an insurance scam; a washed-up director, turned suicidal, if only he had someone to care for his beloved dog; a snooty art dealer, wracked by kidney stones, cared for by his devoted assistant; a grungy deranged vice cop, now partnered with a fresh-faced rookie; and two beautiful and jealous women entangled in their deadly scheme--into a spoof of the crime thriller genre.

Hooboy...the ratings for this were abysmal, the 18-49 numbers tells me this show might not make it to 4 episodes. I have it on my tivo and maybe like The Brave I end up liking it a lot ratings be damned, but even with the live +3 pop for The Brave that show is still on thin ice and this show has even more of a 18-49 deficit to make up, so I am not optimistic about its future.

I remember this film, everyone was talking about the Charlize Theron / Teri Hatcher cat fight, and yeah...that was nice, the film was also okay from what little I remember of it.

Very early Theron, and she seemed exotic at the time, and no clue she'd become an Oscar-winning actress. I enjoyed the film, -it had sort of a Robert Altman feel to it.

ABC is taking this off Sundays effectively immediately, to be replaced with a second episode of "Shark Tank", which I assume will be a repeat. "Days" will be burned off on Saturdays over three weeks starting in Mid-December. I've just been DVRing and setting them aside, since the ratings indicated it was doomed and I never read much reaction to it.

I only watched the first ep...will delete the show and unwatched eps from my tivo. It was a meh 1st episode, it did not need to be The Wire, but the fact that it left me feeling like I could care less about the daughter's fate on the show explains why the show did not "pop" for me.
