Yet another fast-tracked US drama is coming to Nine, this time crime / mystery Unforgettable, starring Aussie Poppy Montgomery.
It will replace Hamish and Andy at 8:30pm on Thursday, October 6th, around two weeks after its US premiere tomorrow.
Montgomery stars as Carrie Wells, an enigmatic former detective who suffers from the extremely rare condition hyperthymesia. This disorder makes her hyper-observant, with a memory so flawless that every place, every conversation, every moment of joy and heartbreak is forever embedded in her mind.
And as well as remembering every single thing she can’t forget anything either, except for the details of the day her sister was murdered years ago.
Tortured, Carrie has tried to put her past behind her. Without a job, she survives on her wits as a “card counter” at casinos and does volunteer work at a nursing home where her dementia-ridden mother lives. But when she becomes the sole witness to a brutal murder in her building, Carrie is unexpectedly reunited with her ex-boyfriend and partner, NYPD Detective Al Burns (Dylan Walsh, Nip/Tuck) who is investigating the case. Knowing the value of her brilliant and complex memory, he asks her to consult on the murder.
Being back on the job feels surprisingly right for Carrie. Despite her conflicted feelings for Al she decides to join his unit permanently as a detective solving homicides – most notably, the unsolved murder of her sister. All she needs to do is remember …
From the producers of Justified and Without a Trace, and based on the J. Robert Lennon short story The Rememberer, this captivating series will have you doing anything but forget.
