WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10

IN THE DARK

"Pilot" - (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-14, DLS) (HDTV)

SERIES PREMIERE - Murphy (Perry Mattfeld, "Shameless") is a hard-living, hard-drinking, disaffected twenty-something with a penchant for cigarettes and casual sex. She's also blind. Murphy lives with her supportive best friend, Jess (Brooke Markham), and - more reluctantly - her trusty guide dog, Pretzel, whose presence she resents. Her parents, Hank (Derek Webster) and Joy (Kathleen York), own a guide dog school, a venture they opened hoping it would give Murphy a job with some purpose. Murphy's closest friend is a sweet teenager named Tyson (Thamela Mpumlwana), whose kindness and intelligence are currently going to waste as he deals drugs on the street for his older cousin, Darnell (Keston John). Murphy's life comes crashing down when, while out for a walk with Pretzel, she stumbles upon what she's sure is the lifeless body of Tyson in the alley outside her apartment. But when the police arrive, including a salt-of-the-earth detective named Dean (Rich Sommer), there is no body to be found - and with Murphy not exactly sober, the police aren't especially inclined to investigate. Murphy is devastated, and the only thing holding her back from spiraling downward even further is her resolve to learn what happened to Tyson. Morgan Krantz and Casey Deidrick also star. Michael Showalter directed the episode written by Corinne Kingsbury (#101). Original airdate 4/4/2019.

DESCRIPTION:
(from The CW's press release, May 2019) Murphy (Perry Mattfeld) is a hard-living, hard-drinking, disaffected twenty-something with a penchant for casual sex. She also happens to be blind. She spends the majority of her time in a one block radius that includes her apartment, a local bar, and a convenience store where she buys tampons and candy bars. Murphy lives with her roommate Jess (Brooke Markham) and her guide dog Pretzel, whom she reluctantly has come to love. Her closest friend is a teenager named Tyson (Thamela Mpumlwana) who she befriends after he saved her from a violent mugging. But her life comes crashing down when she stumbles upon what she's sure is his lifeless body in the alley outside her apartment. But by the time the police arrive, there is no body to be found, leaving everyone around Murphy to question her. But Murphy is determined to find the truth, which opens up her world far beyond the comforts of her block. IN THE DARK is from CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros.
