Leading US broadcaster ABC has ordered straight-to-series 10 episodes of Skydance Television’s all-new Ten Days in the Valley, starring and executive produced by Emmy and Golden Globe winner Kyra Sedgwick.
Skydance Television anticipates that the series, which is created, written and executive produced by Tassie Cameron (Rookie Blue), who also serves as showrunner, will debut on ABC in 2017. Ten Days in the Valley marks Sedgwick’s return to headlining a drama series following her seven-season tenure on The Closer.
The original series follows Jane Sadler (Sedgwick), 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, her world implodes.
The Skydance Television series is executive produced by Sedgwick and Jill Littman along with Cameron, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross.
“Playing Jane Sadler is exactly the deep and emotionally charged role I was searching for in a series. I look forward to working with the team at Skydance, who have continuously created exceptional film and TV projects. We are all very excited that Ten Days in the Valley has found its home on ABC,” commented Sedgwick.
Added Channing Dungey, president, ABC Entertainment: “Ten Days in the Valley has everything: it’s a thriller, it’s a taut, exciting love story, and it has the kind of character our audience loves: a strong, powerful woman who is also dangerously flawed. We’re thrilled to have the amazing Kyra Sedgwick play this compelling role.
