Scoop: Coming Up on the Series Premiere of EMERGENCE on ABC - Tuesday, September 24, 2019

Scoop: Coming Up on the Series Premiere of EMERGENCE on ABC - Tuesday, September 24, 2019 Beyond explanation ... beyond understanding ... lies the truth. This character-driven genre thriller 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 center of it all. ABC's intriguing new drama series "Emergence" premieres TUESDAY, SEPT. 24 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. (TV-PG, LV) Episodes can also be viewed the next day on ABC.com, the ABC app and Hulu.

In the series premiere, "Pilot," 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.

Jo must balance her growing, protective relationship with Piper with her love and concern for her own family: her daughter, Mia (Ashley Aufderheide); her father, Ed (Clancy Brown); and her ex-husband, Alex (Donald Faison). 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?
"Emergence" stars Allison Tolman as Jo Evans, Alexa Swinton as Piper, Owain Yeoman as Benny Gallagher, Ashley Aufderheide as Mia Evans, Robert Bailey Jr. as Officer Chris Minetto, Zabryna Guevara as Abby Frasier with Donald Faison as Alex Evans and Clancy Brown as Ed Sawyer.

Written and executive produced by Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters ("Kevin (Probably) Saves the World," "Marvel's Agent Carter," "Resurrection," "Reaper"), Paul McGuigan directs the pilot and is an executive producer.

"Emergence" is produced by ABC Studios. ABC Studios is a part of Disney Television Studios, a collection of studios comprised of 20th Century FOX Television, ABC Studios and FOX 21 Television Studios.
