Premise[edit]

An irreverent blind woman in her twenties, Murphy, drifts through life in a drunken haze. She has only two friends—Jess, her understanding roommate, and Tyson, a teenage drug-dealer who saved her from a violent mugging. Out for a walk with her guide dog, Pretzel, she stumbles upon a corpse that must be Tyson's, but it disappears before the police arrive. When they do not seem inclined to investigate, Murphy clings onto the only thing that can keep her together: figuring out what happened to her friend.[1] She resolves to solve the murder herself, while also managing her colorful dating life and the job she hates at "Guiding Hope", a school for training guide dogs run by her parents.

Cast and characters[edit]

Main[edit]

  • Perry Mattfeld as Murphy Mason, a young woman in her 20s who has been totally blind since age 14 from retinitis pigmentosa. Her blindness, introverted personality, and self-destructive lifestyle make her unwelcoming to most people. When a friend is murdered, she finds a new purpose in trying to find his killer.
  • Rich Sommer as Dean Riley (seasons 1–2), a cop who sympathizes with Murphy since his daughter Chloe was also blind.
  • Brooke Markham as Jess Damon, a veterinarian at Guiding Hope and Murphy's roommate and best friend who also assists her as an informal aide at times.
  • Casey Deidrick as Max Parish, a food truck owner and associate of Darnell who becomes attracted to Murphy.
  • Keston John as Darnell James, a local gang leader and Tyson's cousin, who Murphy turns to for help finding him.
  • Morgan Krantz as Felix Bell, Murphy's colleague at Guiding Hope.
  • Thamela Mpumlwana as Tyson Parker (season 1), a teenager who saved Murphy from a violent mugging two years previously, and became her closest friend until his untimely death.
  • Derek Webster as Hank Mason (season 1; recurring season 2), Murphy's adoptive father and the owner of Guiding Hope.
  • Kathleen York as Joy Mason (season 1; recurring season 2), Murphy's adoptive mother. Unlike Hank, she is less accepting of Murphy's poor life choices.

Recurring[edit]

  • Humberly Gonzalez as Vanessa, Jess's ex girlfriend.
  • Calle Walton as Chloe, Dean's daughter who is also blind and looks up to Murphy as a big sister.
  • Saycon Sengbloh as Jules Becker (season 1), Dean's partner and Darnell's love interest.
  • Nicki Micheaux as Nia Bailey, proprietor of a laundromat which serves as a front for her operations as a drug lord and money launderer.
  • Lindsey Broad as Chelsea, Murphy's bartender friend and Dean's love interest, then Felix's.
  • Ana Ayora as Det. Sarah Barnes, Max's confidential handler.
  • Cortni Vaughn Joyner as Sam, Nia's henchwoman.
  • Matt Murray as Officer Gene Clemens (Season 2), Dean's last partner on the police force.[2]
  • Chris Perfetti as Ben (Season 2), Chelsea's slacker brother hired by Felix as a receptionist at Guiding Hope.
  • Natalie Liconti as Sterling, Sam's girlfriend who's secretly keeping an eye on Nia's money and drugs hidden at Guiding Hope.

Production[edit]

Filming for In the Dark in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Development[edit]

The series was created by Corinne Kingsbury for The CW, to debut during the 2018–19 television season.[3][4] On January 30, 2018, The CW officially ordered the pilot.[5] The series was greenlit on May 11, 2018.[6]

In the Dark is the first CW primetime series to carry Descriptive Video Service audio, though The CW, as a minor network, is not required to have any DVS provisions under the regulations for audio description for their affiliates, so the base of stations carrying that track is smaller than other networks where carriage of descriptive video is required. On January 10, 2019, The CW announced the premiere of the series on April 4 at 9 p.m.[7] On April 24, 2019, The CW renewed the series for a second season,[8] that was originally scheduled to premiere on May 28, 2020,[9] however it was moved to premiere date on April 16, 2020.[10] On January 7, 2020, the series was renewed for a third season.[11]

Casting[edit]

On March 2, 2018, it was announced that Perry Mattfeld had been cast in the protagonist role of Murphy in the series' pilot, along with Brooke Markham as Jess, Murphy's roommate and best friend, and Keston John as Darnell, a local drug dealer;[12] followed on March 9 with Kathleen York as Joy, Murphy's mother, and Derek Webster as Hank, Joy's husband.[13] Austin Nichols was cast as Dean, a cop with a blind daughter, on March 12.[14] On May 16, 2018, The CW announced that the role of Dean had been recast;[15] with Nichols thereafter replaced by Rich Sommer on July 13, 2018.[16] On September 10, 2019, Matt Murray was cast in a recurring role for the second season.[2]

Criticism over lack of disabled actors[edit]

The show received some criticism for casting a sighted actor to play a blind character. British actor James Moore, who plays a disabled character in the soap opera Emmerdale and has a disability himself, argued that disabled actors will always be better placed to play disabled roles due to their life experience.[17] On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, critics worried that the "questionable treatment of physical handicaps may leave some viewers with a dim impression."[18]

During a panel discussion at the Television Critics Association press tour, executive producer Nicky Weinstock defended the choices, claiming that they initially auditioned blind actors, but ultimately cast Perry because she was the best actor for the role.[19]

Filming[edit]

Filming on the pilot began on March 12, 2018,[20] in Toronto, Ontario, Canada;[21] and wrapped on March 28.[20] Principal photography on season 1 began on August 8, 2018, and ended on December 21, 2018.[22] Principal photography for the second season began on August 19, 2019 and ended on January 24, 2020 in Toronto and Cambridge[23], Ontario, Canada.[24] Filming for the series' third season is scheduled to begin on October 1, 2020 and conclude on February 20, 2021.[25]

Murphy, a twenty-something antisocial blind woman, lives a relatively uneventful life full of drunken hookups and chain-smoking, with only Tyson, a teenage drug dealer who befriends her, to confide in. One night, while walking her dog, Murphy stumbles across what she believes to be Tyson's corpse, but when a police investigation turns up nothing, she spirals into depression, culminating in her getting caught cheating with a married man, Bryant, and losing her cane. When she returns to Tyson's old corner, she meets Darnell, Tyson's cousin and supplier, who tells her he's still alive. Bryant's wife, Gayle, rescinds a donation she made to Murphy's parents, driving a wedge between her and her mother Joy, who has given up trying to help her. Out of guilt, Murphy agrees to take a receptionist's job in her family's seeing dog school until she can pay them back. Incensed that no one believes her about Tyson, Murphy takes it upon herself to find him and has his phone's GPS tracked so she can find it. She notifies both Darnell and a friendly cop, Dean, but both discourage her from further investigation. Murphy's roommate Jess tells her that she knows Murphy will try to solve the case anyway.

Joy and Hank organize a "barkery" event to raise money for the school, which Joy expects her daughter to attend. Murphy goes to Darnell for the address, but he refuses to tell her. Instead, she goes on a one-hour date with Max, one of his associates, for the information. Chloe sets her father up with Jade, a hooker from the station. Jess buys a sex toy to improve her relationship with Vanessa. Max takes Murphy to a beach, and then gives her the address. Murphy goes there, visits Tyson's room, and then tells Rhonda the truth.

Murphy agrees to watch Chloe while Dean and Chelsea go on a date, and then takes her to the mall to meet a boy named Billy, unaware that Nia has paid Wesley's bail and provided him with her name. Murphy pays for Chloe to get a full makeover, boosting her confidence enough that she manages to overcome her shyness and get Billy to talk to her. Wesley then abducts them and confiscates their phones, but Murphy uses a message written in lipstick to get a bystander to call 911, forcing him to ditch them and flee.

Felix assumes ownership of the school despite Joy refusing to sign on to the deal. Jess, feeling that Vanessa does not understand or appreciate her feelings, turns away from her.
