Actress Paula Patton is following trends, and heading to TV. The Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol star is headlining a new summer series from ABC. Per Deadline:
Paula Patton has been set as the lead of Somewhere Between, ABC’s thriller drama series with a supernatural twist, which has a 10-episode straight-to-series order for summer 2017.
Written by Legend Of The Seeker and Taxi Brooklyn co-creator Stephen Tolkin based on a Korean format, Somewhere Between centers on superstar news producer and fiercely loving mom Laura Price (Patton). She isn’t crazy: She knows her daughter Serena is going to be murdered. She doesn’t know who the murderer is or why she’ll be 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.
TV is rapidly become the place of choice for many prominent movie performers. Let’s hope the trend continues to produce high-quality TV.
