Summer TV Preview: 21 New Shows to Get Excited About

Yahoo! TV

‘Somewhere Between’ (ABC, July 24 at 10 p.m.)

The 1-Sentence Pitch: Laura (Paula Patton) lives in San Francisco with her husband, “and they have a beautiful 8-year-old daughter — until the daughter disappears and turns up drowned in the Bay,” says exec producer Stephen Tolkin. But through a mysterious circumstance, time rewinds to eight days before the daughter’s disappearance, and her mom “does every single thing she can to change fate.”

What to Expect: When the world gets rewound, it gives Laura a chance to save her daughter. “But every single time she changes events, they end up falling back into the same path,” Tolkin teases. So Laura begins trying to save the other female victims of the serial killer responsible for her daughter’s death. The show is based on a Korean drama called God’s Gift: 14 Days, and Tolkin was inspired by the idea that “we think we have control over our lives, but there are forces much bigger than us guiding it.”

Time Opens All Wounds: The rewind brings a private investigator named Nico Jackson (Devon Sawa) into Laura’s orbit. “She lives a perfect life and he lives a messed-up life. But her life is not perfect, and in the course of her journey she discovers that,” Tolkin says. “She discovers secrets. Everything about her marriage changes.” — KW
