Long Island police chief Jo Evans (Golden Globe nominee Allison Tolman from Fargo) investigates a case involving a young child found unscathed at the site of a mysterious plane accident. The girl has no memory of who she is or how she got there, but her arrival is marked by unexplained phenomena and electronic disruptions.
The sci-fi drama co-stars child actress Alexa Swinton (who also plays Eva Rhoades in Billions), Donald Faison (BET Comedy Awards winner and Teen Choice nominee for Scrubs), and Emmy winner Terry O’Quinn (Lost, Perpetual Grace), among others.
It’s Tolman’s performance the critics are raving about though, with Variety saying, “Tolman brings to the role the warmth and shrewdness she did to a similar part in FX’s Fargo; it’s a pleasure simply to watch her think through the case.”
Emergence was one of the best reviewed TV sci-fi and fantasy shows of 2019, with 94% on Rotten Tomatoes and 4.6 million views for the trailer on YouTube.
