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.

For those of you interested in Wyoming author CJ Box’s new TV show this fall (we are), Box  released more details on his Facebook page.

Although ABC network execs haven’t announced when the series will start, “Big Sky” will air on Tuesday nights.

The show is centered around the character Cassie Dewell. If you want more background on her and the other characters in the story, you should read Box’s book “The Highway”.

Dewel, Box says, will be played by Kylie Bunbury while Cody Hoyt will be played by Ryan Phillippe.

TV writing is different from book writing, Box said, and that means he’s not involved in the day-to-day production.

“Television, unlike novel writing, is a collaborative process involving producers, writers, and actors,” Box said.

“David E. Kelley is the consummate professional with an unbelievable track record (Big Little Lies, Picket Fences, Chicago Hope, The Practice, Ally Mcbeal and many others).  We trust him.  Or, in other words, our ‘input’ is to provide the source material,” he said.

As for rumors about a Joe Picket series or movie, Box said just wait a bit.

“There will be a very exciting announcement this winter or spring that we can’t yet discuss.  But watch this space,” he said.
