The Alphabet Network is dialing up the heat this summer. ABC has announced the first season debut of its Take Two TV show. This one has been in the offing for a while. The network ordered it straight to series, back in November of 2017. From Castle creators and EPs Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe, Take Two season one will premiere on Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 10:00pm ET/PT.
An ABC crime procedural, Take Two stars Rachel Bilson as Sam Swift and Eddie Cibrian as Eddie Valetik. Once upon a time, Sam was the star of a hit TV show, until her big breakdown went public and she retreated to rehab. Meanwhile, Eddie is a private investigator, who is using his skills (begrudgingly) to help her find something very important — a comeback role. Xavier de Guzman, Aliyah O’Brien, and Alice Lee also star.

ABC’S CRIME DRAMA ‘TAKE TWO,’ STARRING RACHEL BILSON AND EDDIE CIBRIAN, PREMIERES THURSDAY, JUNE 21
From ‘Castle’ Creators and Executive Producers Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe
ABC’s “Take Two,” the network’s newest procedural crime series starring Rachel Bilson (“Hart of Dixie,” “Nashville”) and Eddie Cibrian (“CSI: Miami,” “Rosewood”), is set to premiere THURSDAY, JUNE 21, at 10 p.m. EDT.
From Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe, the creators and executive producers of ABC’s highly popular series “Castle,” comes this upbeat detective series that follows Sam Swift (Rachel Bilson), the former star of a hit cop series whose epic breakdown is broadcast to the public and sends her to rehab. Desperate to restart her career, she talks her way into shadowing lone-wolf private investigator Eddie Valetik (Eddie Cibrian) as research for a potential comeback role. Though Eddie resents the babysitting gig, high-spirited Sam uses the skills she learned as an actor playing a cop and proves herself to be surprisingly valuable.
The cast also includes Xavier de Guzman, Aliyah O’Brien and Alice Lee.
“Take Two” is created and executive produced by Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe, along with Studiocanal TV’s Rola Bauer and Tandem Productions’ Tim Halkin. The pilot was directed by John Terlesky. “Take Two” is produced by Tandem Productions and MilMar Pictures in co-production with ABC Studios. “Take Two” was co-developed and co-financed by ABC, VOX and France 2.
