ABC is back with a new crime series. Take Two will premiere tonight, June 21, at 10pm ET/PT.
If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can watch ABC live on your computer, phone or streaming device by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
Hulu With Live TV: In addition to their extensive Netflix-like streaming library, Hulu now also offers a bundle of live TV channels, including ABC (live in most markets). You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch a live stream of ABC on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” also comes with both its extensive on-demand library (which has many shows available after they air) and 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).
Sling TV: ABC (live in select markets) is included in the “Sling Orange” plus “Broadcast Extra” channel bundle. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial of both packages, and you can then watch ABC live on your computer via the Sling TV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Sling TV app.
If you can’t watch live, you can get 50 hours of cloud DVR storage as an additional add-on.
Take Two comes from the creative minds of Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe. It stars Rachel Bilson along with Eddie Cibrian.
The series centers on Bilson’s character Sam Swift, who once starred in a hit cop series but is sent to rehab after a breakdown. Now out of rehab and determined to make an epic acting comeback, Bilson begins speaking to PI Eddie Valetik for research so that she can be the best actress she can be.
The show’s pilot was directed by actor, director, and screenwriter John Telesky. Telesky is best known for his title role in the 1987 film Deathstalker II.
Bilson is arguably the most familiar face on the series. The California-born actress played Summer Roberts on the prime-time drama series The OC and had her movie debut in The Last Kiss. She then went on to play Dr. Zoe Hart in The CW’s Hart of Dixie.
Eddie Cibrian, Bilson’s co-star on the show, played Cole Deschanel on Sunset Beach. He has starred on a number of series, including The Young and the Restless, Baywatch Nights, Sunset Beach, CSI: Miami, and Third Watch.
IN 2006, he was added to the cast of Rosewood as Captain Ryan Slade.
