Vancouver Crime Series SIGHT UNSEEN With Blind Detective Debuts on CW

Vancouver crime drama Sight Unseen, about a blind, former homicide detective (Dolly Lewis) solving cases with the help of a visual assistance guide (Agam Darshi) and her former partner (Daniel Gilles), premieres on the CW tonight.

Sight Unseen centres on Tess Avery (Dolly Lewis), a top homicide detective who’s forced to quit her job after nearly killing her partner Jake Campbell (Daniel Gilles) and being declared clinically blind. Haunted by the case she left behind, and unwilling to accept her diagnosis, Tess forms an unorthodox partnership with a remote seeing eye guide, Sunny Patel (Agam Darshi), to solve the brutal abduction of a young mother Tess is certain is still alive.

Season One of Sight Unseen debuted on CTV in Canada earlier this year.
