FOX UK has picked up ABC’s drama Emergence, setting an April UK air date for the sci-fi series it has been announced.

Beyond explanation … beyond understanding … lies the truth. The addictive drama follows a police chief who takes in a young child she finds near the site of a mysterious accident who has no memory of what has happened. The investigation draws her into a conspiracy larger than she ever imagined, and the child’s identity is at the centre of it all.

Jo Evans (Allison Tolman), a whip-smart police chief, plunges her family into a deepening mystery when she discovers a young girl (Alexa Swinton) the night of an inexplicable plane crash in the quiet northeastern town and decides to protect her. Who is this child? Where did she come from and what does she know? Benny Gallagher (Owain Yeoman), an investigative reporter, intrudes into Jo’s inquiry with his own take on the shadowy evidence.

As the spellbinding mystery unfolds, the family’s relationships are tested, unexplained events question reality, and everyone chases the shocking answers. What happens when a regular family is gripped by unimaginable circumstances?

The series stars Allison Tolman (‘Fargo’) as Jo Evans, Alexa Swinton (‘Billions’) as Piper, Owain Yeoman (‘The Mentalist’) as Benny Gallagher, Ashley Aufderheide (‘Four Kids and It’) as Mia Evans, Robert Bailey Jr. (‘The Night Shift’) as Officer Chris Minetto, Zabryna Guevara (‘Gotham’) as Abby Frasier with Donald Faison (‘Scrubs’) as Alex Evans and Clancy Brown (‘Bad Boys’) as Ed Sawyer.

‘Emergence’ is written and executive produced by Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters (‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’, ‘Agent Carter’, ‘Dollhouse’). Paul McGuigan (‘Sherlock’, ‘Luke Cage’, ‘Lucky Number Slevin’) directed the pilot and also is an exec producer with Fazekas & Butters.

Emergence‘ Season 1 premieres Monday, 20th April 2020 at 9pm on FOX UK.
