When police chief Jo Evans (Allison Tolman) discovers a young girl, Piper, near the site of a plane crash, she – and the audience – knows that all is not as it seems. But with Piper appearing to have no home or family, Jo can’t bring herself to abandon the mysterious girl. Being recently divorced, the truth is that Jo is also vulnerable, and Piper’s arrival couldn’t have come at a better time. But who is Piper and what is she looking for in Peconic Bay?
The intriguing mystery will enthral fans of other hit sci-fi series such as Lost (coming to Showmax in December 2019!). Meanwhile, a cast that includes familiar faces such as Clancy Brown, Donald Faison (Scrubs – also coming to Showmax in December 2019) and Allison Tolman (Fargo) will keep fans of family dramas such as This Is Us coming back for more.
Emergence already has a 90% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with RogerEbert.com praising Tolman’s performance: “Tolman finds emotional, subtle beats that lesser actresses would miss.”
