Big Sky preview
Big Sky is based on the 2013 novel The Highway by C. J. Box and revolves around a kidnapping. The action follows two private detectives who team up with an ex-cop to search for two sisters who disappeared on a remote highway. However, they soon discover that there are more victims than they expected and need to race against time to stop the bad guy(s).
The series premiered on ABC in the US late last year to mostly positive reviews. It has a solid cast and the premise should be intriguing enough to appeal to crime enthusiasts. Plus, David E. Kelley is known for creating thought-provoking shows and Big Sky is no exception. There's a good chance you'll be hooked from episode one.
