Ten Days in the Valley has some new company. Deadline reports Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Francois Battiste, and eight more have joined the upcoming ABC TV series.
From Rookie Blue’s Tassie Cameron, the drama follows “Jane Sadler (Kyra Sedgwick), an overworked television producer and single mother in the middle of a separation whose life is turned upside down when her young daughter goes missing in the middle of the night.” The cast also includes Erika Christensen and Emily Kinney.
In addition to Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Battiste, Currie Graham, Nelson Lee, Abigail Pniowsky, Josh Randall, Ali Stroker, Ella Thomas, Beth Triffon, and Mark L. Young have joined the cast of Ten Days in the Valley. ABC has not yet set a premiere date for the series.

Pniowsky is Lake, Jane’s adorable and exuberant 8-year-old daughter.
Randall portrays Tom, Ali’s decisive, tough yet warm husband, a go-getting journalist who sees it all.
Stroker plays Tamara, a writer and crack researcher in Jane’s internal writers’ room, Tamara is unafraid to pitch and let her opinions be known. She’s an encyclopedia of facts and statistics.
