Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by and starring Kyra Sedgwick, TEN DAYS IN THE VALLEY is a one-hour scripted drama series that centers on Jane Sadler, an overworked television producer and single mother in the middle of a separation whose life is turned upside down when her young daughter goes missing in the middle of the night. Just like her controversial police TV show, everything is a mystery, everyone has a secret and no one can be trusted.

After her award-winning documentary brings down the San Diego Police Department, Jane Sadler decides to turn her storytelling talents to fiction and launches a new television cop drama -- a barely fictionalized account of corruption within the Los Angeles Police Department. But the pressures of balancing her demanding career with being a devoted single mother start to take their toll on Jane. When her daughter, Lake, goes missing, and the Robbery-Homicide Division of the LAPD starts to investigate, Jane's world quickly begins to implode. Suddenly, everyone in Jane's life is a suspect: her family, her co-workers, everyone in her inner circle. Pete, Jane's ex, is a charismatic, unpredictable music producer and a recovering heroin addict, seeking joint custody of Lake. Ali, Jane's younger half-sister, is loving, capable and pragmatic; but her own struggle to conceive -- and her complex relationship with Jane -- will cause her to question many of Jane's choices. Ali's husband, Tom, is an ambitious, unemployed journalist, desperate for a break. Even Jane's right-hand man and head writer on the television series, Matt, has his own demons; he is desperate to have his own series one day and can never seem to meet Jane's unflinching expectations. Working with -- or in conflict with -- Jane on this investigation are the police officers from LAPD's top-tier Robbery-Homicide Division. Detective John Bird is running lead on the case of the missing child. A strategically non-judgmental maverick investigator, Bird answers to Commander Elliot Gomez, who presides over the LAPD Detective Bureau with the imperiousness and confidence of an oligarch. Commander Gomez's beloved older brother is currently running for Attorney General, and right now, the Commander's primary goal is to clean up the image of the LAPD. And of course, there is also Jane's secret source, Gus Tremblay. An undercover narcotics detective, Gus is also Jane's confidante, lover, and her off-the-record source behind the "fictional" stories she's telling on her series.
