ABC Orders Murder Mystery ‘Somewhere Between’ to Series

Network gives 10-episode straight-to-series order to drama from executive producer Stephen Tolkin

ABC has given a straight-to-series order to the drama “Somewhere Between.”

The murder drama from writer and executive producer Stephen Tolkin (“Perception,” “Brothers & Sisters,” “Summerland”)  has been picked up for 10 episodes.

Based on a Korean format, the series follows Laura Price, who is certain that her 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.

Hailing from Thunderbird Entertainment, the series will also be executive produced by Ivan Fecan and Joseph Broido. It will shoot in Vancouver.

The order comes as pilot season gets underway at the broadcast networks. ABC was the first to officially order a project to pilot last week, with the comedy “Libby and Malcolm,” from co-creators Vijal Patel and Kenya Barris of “Black-ish.”

The ABC Studios single-cam is a blended family show about two polar-opposite political pundits who fall in love despite all odds, per its official description. The duo forms an insta-family, as well as a work partnership. Felicity Huffman and Courtney B. Vance will star.
