‘Castle’ Creator, Exec Producer Team on ‘Take Two’ with Tandem

LONDON — Tandem Prods. will produce witty crime procedural “Take Two” in partnership with Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe, best known for hit series “Castle.” Marlowe and Miller will exec produce under their MilMar Pictures banner, along with Tandem chief exec Rola Bauer. Studiocanal is handling worldwide distribution.

Marlowe is the creator of ABC Television series “Castle,” serving as its executive producer and showrunner for the first seven seasons. Miller served as a writer and executive producer on the show for seven seasons.

Marlowe’s film credits include the action blockbuster “Air Force One,” starring Harrison Ford and directed by Wolfgang Petersen; the Arnold Schwarzenegger millennial thriller “End of Days”; and the sci-fi thriller “Hollow Man,” directed by Paul Verhoeven and starring Kevin Bacon and Elisabeth Shue.

Miller’s credits include Sundance favorite “Dysenchanted,” and she has developed feature and television projects with DreamWorks, Disney and ABC, including “Whit & Wisdom,” “Game Rules” and her original screenplay “Bedwarmer.”

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.’”
