ABC’s new summer series Take Two will premiere on Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT. The series comes from Castle creators and executive producers Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe and stars Hart of Dixie‘s Rachel Bilson and CSI: Miami‘s Eddie Cibrian.
In addition to Bilson and Cibrian, the season one cast includes Xavier de Guzman (Our House), Aliyah O’Brien (Bates Motel), and Alice Lee (Switched at Birth). The detective series is executive produced by Rola Bauer and Tim Halkin. John Terlesky directed the Take Two pilot.
Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe’s Castle starring Nathan Fillion ran on ABC for eight seasons (2009-2016). Back in November 2017 when the show was given a straight-to-series order, ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey stated, ““Andrew and Terri are wonderful storytellers and this is the perfect project for their return to ABC. We’re excited to see Rachel and Eddie bring these characters to life.”
The Plot: The series follows Sam Swift (Bilson), the former star of a hit cop series whose epic breakdown is broadcast to the public and sends her to rehab. Desperate to restart her career, she talks her way into shadowing lone-wolf private investigator Eddie Valetik (Cibrian) as research for a potential comeback role. Though Eddie resents the babysitting gig, high-spirited Sam uses the skills she learned as an actor playing a cop and proves herself to be surprisingly valuable.
