Disney’s ABC has released a new video giving a deeper look at the new drama series, “Alaska Daily”.
From the mind of Tom McCarthy (“Spotlight”), “Alaska Daily” stars Hilary Swank as Eileen Fitzgerald, a fiercely talented and award-winning investigative journalist who leaves her high-profile New York life behind after a fall from grace to join a daily metro newspaper in Anchorage on a journey to find both personal and professional redemption.

In addition to Swank, “Alaska Daily” stars Jeff Perry as Stanley Kornik, Matt Malloy as Bob Young, Meredith Holzman as Claire Muncy, Grace Dove as Rosalind “Roz” Friendly, Pablo Castelblanco as Gabriel Tovar, Ami Park as Yuna Park and Craig Frank as Austin Teague.
Tom McCarthy is creator and executive producer. Hilary Swank, Melissa Wells, Bert Salke, Kyle Hopkins (Anchorage Daily News), Ryan Binkley (Anchorage Daily News) and Peter Elkoff, who will also serve as showrunner, are executive producers on the series.
The pilot episode is written and directed by Tom McCarthy.
The series will debut on ABC on Thursday 6th October 2022 at 10:01pm ET, with episodes being released the following day on Hulu.
