What would you do if someone you loved was suddenly returned from the dead? That’s the premise of the new ABC series, RESURRECTION.

It won’t be airing until midseason, but we have photos from the pilot, a gallery of the cast, the trailer, plus the network’s official description of the show…


Picture 1 of 25

RESURRECTION - "Resurrection" stars Omar Epps ("House") as Martin Bellamy, Matt Craven ("Crimson Tide," "A Few Good Men") as Fred, Devin Kelley ("Chernobyl Diaries," "The Chicago Code") as Gail, Frances Fisher ("Titanic") as Lucille, Kurtwood Smith ("That '70s Show") as Harold, Sam Hazeldine ("The Raven") as Abel, Samaire Armstrong ("Entourage," "The O.C.") as Elaine, Nicholas Gonzalez ("Off the Map") as Connor, Mark Hildreth ("Dragon Ball Z") as Tom and Landon Gimenez as Jacob. Written by Aaron Zelman ("Damages," "The Killing"), "Resurrection" is executive-produced by Aaron Zelman, JoAnn Alfano, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Jon Liebman, Brillstein Entertainment and Plan B. The pilot was directed by Charles McDougall. "Resurrection" is produced by ABC Studios. (ABC/Bob D'Amico)SAMAIRE ARMSTRONG, MARK HILDRETH, DEVIN KELLEY, KURTWOOD SMITH, OMAR EPPS, LANDON GIMENEZ, FRANCES FISHER, NICHOLAS GONZALEZ, MATT CRAVEN

The trailer:

ABC’s take: “The people of Arcadia, Missouri are forever changed when their deceased loved ones suddenly start to return. An 8-year-old American boy (Landon Gimenez) wakes up alone in a rice paddy in a rural Chinese province with no idea how he got there. Details start to emerge when the boy, who calls himself Jacob, recalls that his hometown is Arcadia, and an Immigration agent, Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps), takes him there. The home he claims as his own is occupied by an elderly couple, Harold (Kurtwood Smith) and Lucille Garland (Frances Fisher), who lost their son Jacob more than 30 years ago. While they look different, young Jacob recognizes them as his parents. Those closest to the family try to unravel this impossible mystery, including Sheriff Fred Garland (Matt Craven), whose wife Barbara drowned 30 years ago while trying to save Jacob. But this boy who claims to be the deceased Jacob knows secrets about his own death that no one else knows — secrets that Fred’s daughter, Gail (Devin Kelly), will begin to investigate and discover to be true.

“Resurrection” stars Omar Epps (“House”) as Martin Bellamy, Matt Craven (“Crimson Tide,” “A Few Good Men”) as Fred, Devin Kelley (“Chernobyl Diaries,” “The Chicago Code”) as Gail, Frances Fisher (“Titanic”) as Lucille, Kurtwood Smith (“That ’70s Show”) as Harold, Sam Hazeldine (“The Raven”) as Abel, Samaire Armstrong (“Entourage,” “The O.C.”) as Elaine, Nicholas Gonzalez (“Off the Map”) as Connor, Mark Hildreth (“Dragon Ball Z”) as Tom and Landon Gimenez as Jacob.

Written by Aaron Zelman (“Damages,” “The Killing”), “Resurrection” is executive-produced by Aaron Zelman, JoAnn Alfano, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Jon Liebman, Brillstein Entertainment and Plan B. The pilot was directed by Charles McDougall. “Resurrection” is produced by ABC Studios.”

    It looks a great show, but looks like a retelling of the French show ‘Les Revenants’ (The Returned). Returned has more people coming back and I think this show should too as how long cant they drag out one childs story?
