Ten Days In The Valley: Day 1 – Fade In (Series Premiere ABC 1 Oct 2017)

Ten Days in the Valley

In Day 1: Fade In, the premiere episode of Ten Days in the Valley Kyra Sedgwick plays 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.

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;
