NEW YORK, NY (November 20, 2014) – What if you could go back in time and do it all over again? What would you do differently? That is the question VH1’s new scripted series “Hindsight” poses when it premieres Wednesday, January 7, 2015 at 10PM ET/PT.
In the series premiere, we meet Becca (Laura Ramsey) on the eve of her second wedding. It all seems perfect this time around, but she is still plagued by doubt. What if she could fix everything, and make the ‘right’ choices this time? Becca finds herself thinking about her former best friend Lolly (Sarah Goldberg), with whom she had a falling out many years ago. If only she could talk to her once again…
Suddenly, after a freakish elevator ride, Becca gets the opportunity to do just that as she wakes up in New York City on the morning of her first wedding day in 1995. She’s about to marry Sean (Craig Horner), a bad-boy artist who is all wrong for her – and she knows her first move must be to reconnect with Lolly to re-live that day. Can she ‘make it right’ by living her life all over while readapting to life in New York City in the 90’s – a time of smoking in bars, carrying pagers, having an AOL email address? Becca will soon discover there’s no sure-fire way to make the right choices in life – even knowing everything she thinks she knows now.
Nick Clifford, Jessy Hodges, John Patrick Amedori, and Drew Sidora are also series regulars, with Alexandra Chando, Collins Pennie and Adam Herschman appearing in recurring roles. Mario Cantone (“Sex and the City”), Alan Ruck (“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”) and Daphne Zuniga (“Melrose Place,” “One Tree Hill”) appear in guest starring roles.
“Sarah and I, along with our partners Emily and Johnny, are so excited to be in business with Susan Levison and all the talented people at VH1,” said Carl Beverly. “Especially on a series that plows such thematically fertile ground – if we could go back in time, with all the advantages of HINDSIGHT, what would we do differently and how would the shape and arc of our lives change? We can’t think of a better home than VH1 to explore such a fun, provocative and timeless question.”
“Hindsight” is the latest project driving VH1’s successful foray into the scripted genre. The series comes on the heels of the network’s original movie “Drumline: A New Beat,” which was the #1 non-sports telecast on cable of the night premiere on October 27th. VH1’s hit scripted series “Hit The Floor” recently wrapped its second season as the number one ad-supported cable scripted drama among women 18-49.
“Hindsight” is created by Emily Fox (“Jane By Design”), and the pilot was directed by Michael Trim (“Orange Is the New Black”). Fox also serves as executive producer along with John A. Norris (One Tree Hill). Carl Beverly and Sarah Timberman serve as executive producers for Timberman/Beverly (“Masters Of Sex,” “Justified,” “Elementary,” “Odd Couple”). Maggie Malina (“Hit The Floor,” “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story”) will also serve as executive producer as will Alexander A. Motlagh for POPfilms (“CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story”). Susan Levison and Jill Holmes are executive producers for VH1.
