A new thriller series, Emergence, debuts tonight on ABC and will air Tuesdays at 10/9 Central time. The show stars Allison Tolman as Jo Evans the Police Chief. Alexa Swinton stars as Piper the mysterious young girl. Clancy Brown is Ed, Jo Evans father, and Donald Faison is Alex Evans. Alex is Jo Evans ex-husband.
The premise of this exciting new show starts with the story of a police chief on Long Island’s Peconic Bay. She takes in a young child, that was near an accident site. She soon realizes the girl has no memory of what happened or who she is. The mystery surrounding this child intensifies.
Her investigation, of the events that led up to the accident only led to more questions of why and how this happened. A series of bizarre circumstances begin to occur. Electronic disruptions, forces that are unexplained and not known, and a cryptic symbol are all at play as the plot thickens. A plane crashed onto the beach. The girl was not hurt. Who is she? How did she get here? What happened? The Chief didn’t know what to do, as the girl has no explanation of her home but she knew she had to keep this girl safe.
The girl has people who pretend to be her parents looking for her. The girl eventually reveals to the Chief she has powers as they are involved in a car chase with the potential evil characters.
Emergence promises to be a hit, as we learned from the trailer. I will be back to recap the first episode and preview next week’s episode as we learn more about the mysterious crash and girl.
