Premieres Sunday, October 1 at 10 PM ET/PT on ABC
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.”
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.
