From a media release:
Secrets surface and tensions run high as CTV’s new original mystery event series THE DISAPPEARANCE debuts this fall, airing Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT, beginning October 1 on CTV and CTV GO. The six-part, hour-long series features a stellar ensemble cast, including Emmy®-winner Peter Coyote (E.T.) and Critics’ Choice Television Award-nominee Aden Young (RECTIFY), and airs in a prime hammock in CTV’s unrivalled prime-time fall lineup on Sunday nights – between scorching Top 5 hit LUCIFER at 8 p.m. ET/PT and new mystery-thriller TEN DAYS IN THE VALLEY at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Two weeks in advance of its October 1 debut, a special sneak peek of the series premiere episode will be available September 17 on CTV.ca and on demand through television service providers across the country. THE DISAPPEARANCE is also available as a CraveTV FIRST LOOK every Saturday, beginning Sept. 30 at 9 p.m. ET. The French language version of the series airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on Super Écran, beginning October 1.
Produced in 4K by award-winning Productions Casablanca in association with NBCUniversal International Studios, and shot in Montréal last fall, THE DISAPPEARANCE follows the Sullivan family in the wake of a terrifying family drama. As the fractured family bands together to solve the mystery that has uprooted their lives, long-held secrets are uncovered. Driven by hope and a relentless determination to do whatever necessary to uncover the mystery, the same hidden truths that threaten to shatter this family may also be the very key to reuniting them.
In addition to Peter Coyote, who plays retired judge and prosecutor Henry Sullivan; and Aden Young as scruffy and soulful musician Luke Sullivan, Henry’s son and Anthony’s loving father; THE DISAPPEARANCE also stars Gemini Award-nominee Camille Sullivan (THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE) as Helen Murphy Sullivan, Anthony’s devoted mother; Gemini Award-nominee Joanne Kelly (WAREHOUSE 13) as Catherine Sullivan, Henry’s daughter, Luke’s sister, and a charming, devoted palliative care nurse; Genie Award and Silver Lion-winner Micheline Lanctôt (UNITÉ 9) as Susan Bowden, a tough, experienced Lieutenant-Detective; JUNO Award-winner Kevin Parent (Café de Flore) as Sergeant-Detective Charles Cooper, Susan’s partner; and newcomer Michael Riendeau as Anthony Sullivan, Luke and Helen’s son.
In the series premiere (Sunday, Oct. 1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT), when Anthony’s school project gets him in trouble with his teacher, it creates tension between Luke and Henry. After Henry sends Anthony on a scavenger hunt for his birthday, Helen and Luke panic when their son mysteriously vanishes, setting off a puzzle of unthinkable consequences.
THE DISAPPEARANCE is created and written by the Montréal-based writing team of Normand Daneau and Geneviève Simard and directed by Peter Stebbings (Defendor, ORPHAN BLACK). The series is produced by Joanne Forgues of Productions Casablanca. Executive producers are Joanne Forgues, Sophie Parizeau, and Jean-Marc Casanova, creators of the Prix Gémeaux-winning series, LES INVINCIBLES and SÉRIE NOIRE. Emmy® Award-winning JoAnn Alfano (30 ROCK) and Kristen Del Pero are executive producers for NBCUniversal International Studios.
THE DISAPPEARANCE is produced by Productions Casablanca in association with Bell Media and NBCUniversal International Studios, with the financial participation of the Canada Media Fund, the Cogeco Program Development Fund, and the assistance of the Québec Film and Television Tax Credit, and the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit. Super Écran has commissioned the series for French-language broadcast. NBCUniversal International Studios serves as international distributor.
