PRODUCTION BEGINS ON ABC’S “SOMEWHERE BETWEEN” STARRING PAULA PATTON
VANCOUVER, BC (March 7th, 2017) – Production has started in Vancouver on “Somewhere Between,” an ABC limited drama series starring Paula Patton (“Warcraft”). The 10-episode series will air this summer on the ABC Television Network. The pilot was written by Stephen Tolkin (“Brothers & Sisters”) and is based on a Korean format from SBS.
“Somewhere Between” features Patton as Laura Price, a superstar news producer in San Francisco and fiercely loving mom. She isn’t crazy: Laura knows her 8-year-old daughter, Serena, is going to be murdered. She doesn’t know who the murderer is, or why she’s killed, but she knows exactly when it will happen, where, and how. Despite this, all of her attempts to keep her daughter safe fail, and Serena’s fixed, unmovable, terrifying fate keeps her directly in the path of her killer.
The series also stars JR Bourne (“Teen Wolf”) as Tom Price, Laura’s powerful yet sensitive husband, the city’s district attorney; Devon Sawa (“Nikita”) as Nico Jackson, a former cop turned private investigator who is a dangerously charming guy with a devilish smile that hides unspoken sorrow; and newcomer Aria Birch as Serena Price, a big-hearted, untamable child who is always reaching out to others as a new friend.
“Somewhere Between” is produced by Thunderbird Entertainment in association with ITV Studios America, with ITV Studios Global Entertainment handling international distribution. The executive producers are Stephen Tolkin, Ivan Fecan, Joseph Broido, Tim Gamble and Matthew O’Connor.
