Skype Q&A with stars Jade Eshete & Izzie Steele

Nov. 4th at 1pm

Every season is a dizzying, smart, dangerous, unexpected (for us, not the people involved) and fun adventure that explores a different genre. Season one was about time travel with body-swapping, and this season involves an injection of fantasy. Based on Douglas Adams' ("The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy," "Doctor Who") acclaimed novel, the BBC AMERICA original series created by Max Landis and from the studio of "The Walking Dead" stars Samuel Barnett, Elijah Wood, Jade Eshete, Hannah Marks and new to the cast this season is John Hannah, Amanda Walsh, Tyler Labine and Alan Tudyk.

After a five-year hiatus, Ten Days in the Valley marks Kyra Sedgwick’s return to TV following the end of TNT’s The Closer. In ABC’s new thriller, Sedgwick plays Jane Sadler, the overworked producer of a controversial show about law enforcement and a single mother in the middle of a contentious separation. Her world is turned upside down when her daughter goes missing in the middle of the night; losing trust in everyone she knows, she will do anything to find her daughter.
