Castle creator Andrew Marlowe and wife Terri Miller are back at ABC. Their series Take Two recently received a straight-to-series order at the alphabet network. The show was first announced more than a year ago.
If you’re not familiar with Take Two, its plot is very similar to Castle‘s. An actress, well known for her work as a detective on a hit cop show is trying to reclaim her fame after an epic bender. To restart her career, she teams up with a hard-nosed, no-nonsense private investigator. At first, he dislikes babysitting duty but realizes her years spent playing a cop is useful and she brings in business.
The show stars Rachel Bilson and Eddie Cibrian.
This announcement follows ABC’s decision to give a series order to former Castle showrunner Alexi Hawley’s series The Rookie starring Nathan Fillion. The Rookie follows Fillion’s character as he tries to get a second chance at life as the LAPD’s oldest rookie. The show is reportedly based on a true story.
Both shows are slated to premiere in the 2018-19 TV season.
