Paula Patton has lined up her next gig.
The 41-year-old has been cast as the lead in ABC’s upcoming summer drama series Somewhere Between.
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.
The first season of Somewhere Between will consist of 10 episodes and air sometime this summer.
Paula was previously cast in the ABC drug cartel pilot Runner, but the network ultimately passed on the series.
