The television series adapted from C.J. Box’s Cassie Dewell novels, “Big Sky,” will premiere in November, ABC announced this weekend.
“Big Sky” will premiere on Nov. 17 on ABC. The company also released two more teaser trailers, although they were longer than the two released in August.
The series has already been ordered for a full first season, so fans will get the opportunity to see how the mystery plays out over those episodes.
The show will focus on private detectives Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury) and Cody Hoyt (Ryan Phillipe), who team up with Cody’s estranged wife, Jenny, to search for two sisters who have been kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote road in Montana.
The detectives soon find out those aren’t the only girls who have disappeared, beginning a race against time to stop the killer.
The first new teaser shows Hoyt speaking with a police officer about how he’s searching for two missing girls (who are seen being abducted) while the song “Stand by Me” plays over the background, menacingly.
The second teaser more prominently features Dewell and Hoyt investigating the abductions, as well as uncovering a deeper mystery.
The show is being created by TV writer and producer David E. Kelley, who has also created shows such as “Big Little Lies,” “Boston Legal,” “Ally McBeal” and “Mr. Mercedes.” Kelley will write multiple episodes and serve as the showrunner for the first season.
Box will act as an executive producer on the series.
