We Already Have A Million Questions For Upcoming Conspiracy Thriller Emergence

Mystery, intrigue, a touch of sci-fi and a story that’s heavily serialized for maximum impact from week-to-week? Our only question is, why has it taken so long for this series to come into our lives?  

Who’s in it

Buckle up for this remarkable cast, which is led by Golden Globe nominee Allison Tolman (Fargo) and features supporting players like Alexa Swinton (Billions), Owain Yeoman (The Mentalist), Ashley Aufderheide (The Slap), Robert Bailey Jr. (The Night Shift), Zabryna Guevara (Gotham), Donald Faison (Scrubs) and Clancy Brown (Billions).

The pitch

When a police chief discovers a young child near the site of a massive accident with no memory of how she got there, she takes the girl in. But when strange things begin happening and the girl displays strange tendencies, the chief begins unravelling a conspiracy that’s larger than she could have ever imagined.

The sell

As if the impressive cast and compelling plot aren’t enough to draw us in, this one is being touted as a “character-driven genre thriller” that promises to be completely different than all of the other new offerings this fall.
It’s also worth noting that we’re always on board whenever Tolman is involved, but we can’t help but be excited by the creative team behind-the-scenes, too. Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters have worked on dark comedies like Reaper and thrillers like Agent Carter and Resurrection, while also writing on female-forward shows like Dollhouse.
