In “Take Two,” an L.A. private investigator, Eddie Valetik, looking to drum up business, hires a fresh-out-of rehab, uninsurable actress and former star of a hit cop show, Emma Swift, to appear in his late-night TV ads. To Eddie’s chagrin, there’s a flood of responses… wanting to hire Emma.
Spoiled, difficult, but on the verge of eviction, Emma’s more than happy to take on the role of Eddie’s partner, drawing on her acting skills and the numerous plots she’s experienced in her TV series to help solve their cases. Meanwhile, sparks fly between Eddie and Emma, whom he must keep on a short leash and out of trouble.
“Terri and Andrew both have such wonderful voices, and together their combined talents are electric,” Bauer said. “We couldn’t be more delighted to be working with them on such a playfully fun new procedural series like ‘Take Two.’”
