Psychic powers meet crime-solving in 'The InBetween' which just landed a series order at NBC
Filling in the shoes of the lead character, Cassie Bishop, will be Australian actress Harriet Dyer, who has previously worked on shows like Love Child and 2016's Killing Ground
Remember Jennifer Love Hewitt's 2005 show, 'The Ghost Whisperer'? And Simon Baker-starring comic procedural 'The Mentalist'. Combine the two together and you will get what NBC has just ordered to series The InBetween.
Centered on the life of a psychic, the recently green-lit show explores the powers of Cassie Bishop (the lead character) who is forced to use her skills to help her detective friend, Tom Hackett, in solving some of the most challenging cases.
Read the official pitch, as reported by Entertainment Weekly, below:
“Cassie Bishop was born with a gift, though she may call it a curse. She can see and communicate with the dead, helping them with their unresolved problems … whether she likes it or not. When her longtime friend Det. Tom Hackett and his new partner, former FBI Agent Damien Asante, need help solving a darkly puzzling murder, Cassie agrees to use her abilities. Despite her reluctance, she may have found a way to keep her demons at bay, all while solving some of the city’s most challenging cases."
Excited for @PaulBlackthorne but bummed @YusufGatewood is no longer involved. When I heard about #TheInBetween the 1st time it was Yusuf that made me excited for it before I ever knew Paul would be involved. Hope they rethink this.— Erica Reed (@Warrior_Chiari) May 10, 2018
Filling in the shoes of the lead character, Cassie, will be Australian actress Harriet Dyer, who has previously worked on shows like Love Child and 2016's Killing Ground.
Joining Dyer on the star-studded cast of the show, however, is actor Paul Blackthorne (of Arrow fame, who has been reported to be exiting the hit CW show).
Asides Dyer and Blackthorne, actors Anne-Marie Johnson, Cindy Luna and Chad James Buchanan, are also said to be a part of NBC's The InBetween.
As for the executive producer, Moira Kirland, who in the past has been associated with shows like Madam Secretary and Castle, is expected to be shouldering the duties for the new "character-driven procedural drama.”
Sharing a sneak-peek of the to-be-slated series, NBC, as of now, has shared an intriguing post: "Her gift. Her curse. Her calling. #TheInBetween, coming soon to @NBC."
