“Ten Days in the Valley” is moving to Saturday nights on ABC, Variety has confirmed.
Kyra Sedgwick, who stars in the freshman series, tweeted the news on Thursday, writing, “The good people @ABCNetwork are moving #TenDaysInTheValley to Saturday night. STAY TUNED FOR DETAILS!! xx”
The drama aired on Sundays for its first four episodes. There will be a few-weeks break before it starts airing on Saturdays, picking back up on Dec. 16 with its fifth and sixth episodes. Back-to-back episodes of “Shark Tank” will now air Sundays instead.
The move likely spells the end for the drama, which has struggled to find an audience since its launch in early October. The series opened to a modest 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.4 million viewers on Oct. 1 in the Nielsen Live+Same Day ratings. It was all downhill from there, with the first four episodes averaging a 0.4 and 2.7 million viewers, meaning it is currently the lowest-rated scripted series on the network.
Sedgwick stars as Jane Sadler, an overworked television producer and single mother, in the middle of a fractious separation. Jane’s life is turned upside down when her young daughter goes missing in the middle of the night. The series also stars Abigail Pniowsky, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kick Gurry, Erika Christensen, Josh Randall, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, and Felix Solis.
Hailing from Skydance Television’s Uncharted label, “Ten Days in the Valley” was created and written by Tassie Cameron and executive produced by Cameron, Sedgwick, Jill Littman, Sherry White, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Marcy Ross.
