Alaska Daily starring Oscar winner Hilary Swank has been cancelled after one season at ABC.
Eileen Fitzgerald (Swank) is an award-winning investigative journalist and high-powered newspaper reporter in New York. Her reporting methods and abrasive personality are called into question after a high-profile story blows up in her face, and Eileen loses her job.
Her former mentor, Stanley Cornik (Perry), approaches her about making a big move, and she goes to work for a struggling downsized Anchorage newspaper, the Daily Alaskan. Grudgingly, Eileen teams up with a young local reporter named Roz Friendly (Dove). Together, they begin investigating the murders of a group of indigenous women. In a new locale, across the country, and in a very different world, Eileen is on a journey to find both personal and professional redemption.
Here is a trailer for the show.
Alaska Daily stars Hilary Swank, Grace Dove, Jeff Perry, Matt Malloy, Meredith Holzman, Pablo Castelblanco, Ami Park and Craig Frank.
Peter Elkoff was the showrunner on the project which was created by Tom McCarthy.
The series filmed for five months in metro Vancouver. The show premiered on 6 October, 2022 and the first season consisted of 11 episodes.
