Two promos – one rather old and one rather new – are online for the ABC series Resurrection which makes its debut on March 9th. The series is an adaptation of Jason Mott's novel "The Returned," not an adaptation of the French series, The Returned.
The Killing's Aaron Zelman is on writing duties and we have a synopsis to pass along to you. Take a look at the promos here: Do you think this one will have what it takes to stick around on the small screen which is now being inundated with genre stories?
The people of Arcadia, Missouri are forever changed when their deceased loved ones suddenly start to return. An 8-year-old American boy (Landon Gimenez) wakes up alone in a rice paddy in a rural Chinese province with no idea how he got there. Details start to emerge when the boy, who calls himself Jacob, recalls that his hometown is Arcadia, and an Immigration agent, J. Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps), takes him there. The home he claims as his own is occupied by an elderly couple, Henry (Kurtwood Smith) and Lucille Langston (Frances Fisher), who lost their son, Jacob, more than 30 years ago. While they look different, young Jacob recognizes them as his parents. Those closest to the family try to unravel this impossible mystery, including Sheriff Fred Langston (Matt Craven), whose wife, Barbara, drowned 30 years ago while trying to save Jacob. But this boy who claims to be the deceased Jacob knows secrets about his own death that no one else knows — secrets that Fred's daughter, Maggie Langston (Devin Kelly), will begin to investigate and discover to be true.
