CTV/CW’S SIGHT UNSEEN With Dolly Lewis & Agam Darshi Has Day Shoot in Toronto

CTV and The CW’s new series Sight Unseen, with Dolly Lewis’s blind detective solving cases with the help of Agam Darshi’s visual assistance guide, has a day shoot in Toronto today.

Sight Unseen centres on Tess Avery (Dolly Lewis), a homicide detective who’s forced to quit her job after nearly killing her partner (Daniel Gilles) and being declared clinically blind. She uses an assistance app and connects with Sunny Patel (Agam Darshi), a professional seeing-eye guide who’s also an agoraphobe and lives 3,000 miles away. Using a hidden camera and earpiece, Sunny remotely steers Tess through life’s obstacles — and crimes.
