ABC Gives Straight-to-Series Order for 'Ten Days in the Valley' Starring Kyra Sedgwick

ABC has ordered straight-to-series ten episodes of Skydance Television's all-new Ten Days in the Valley, which will star and be executive produced by Emmy and Golden Globe winner Kyra Sedgwick. Skydance Television anticipates that the series, which is created, written, and executive produced by Tassie Cameron (Rookie Blue), who also serves as showrunner, will debut on ABC in 2017. Ten Days in the Valley marks Sedgwick's return to headlining a drama series following her seven-season tenure on The Closer.

Skydance's original series follows Jane Sadler (Sedgwick), an overworked television producer and single mother in the middle of a fractious separation. When her young daughter goes missing in the middle of the night, Jane's world - and her controversial police series - implodes. Life imitates art: everything's a mystery, everyone has a secret, and no one can be trusted.

"Playing Jane Sadler is exactly the deep and emotionally charged role I was searching for in a series. I look forward to working with the team at Skydance, who have continuously created exceptional film and TV projects. We are all very excited that Ten Days in the Valley has found its home on ABC," commented Sedgwick, who began her career on the daytime soap opera Another World.
