ABC has dropped the opening scene of its upcoming thriller series “Emergence” at 3:01 a.m. Tuesday morning — a key in-universe time for the Allison Tolman-led series, as it’s “the moment everything changes for one sleepy northeastern town.”
The first nine minutes of the show are now available for viewing on YouTube, ABC.com, Twitter, Facebook and Hulu, as well as select MVPD and DMVPD on-demand services. But readers here can watch via the video above.
Here’s the official description for the series, which premieres Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 10/9c on ABC:
“Emergence” is a character-driven genre thriller that follows Jo (Allison Tolman), a police chief who takes in a young child (Alexa Swinton) she discovers near the site of a mysterious accident who has no memory of what has happened. The investigation draws Jo into a conspiracy larger than she ever imagined and the child’s identity is at the center of it all.
Along with Tolman and Swinton, the series stars Owain Yeoman as Benny Gallagher, Ashley Aufderheide as Mia Evans, Robert Bailey Jr. as Officer Chris Minetto, Zabryna Guevara as Abby Frasier with Donald Faison as Alex Evans and Clancy Brown as Ed.
“Emergence” is written and executive produced by Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters (“Kevin (Probably) Saves the World,” “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” “Resurrection,” “Reaper”). Paul McGuigan directed the pilot and is an executive producer.
The drama hails from ABC Studios.
