‘In the Dark’ is a comedy–drama series that airs on The CW. The show first premiered on April 4, 2019. It has been created by Corinne Kingsbury and produced by Red Hour Films, Warner Bros. Television, and CBS Television Studios. The series is executive produced by Ben Stiller, Corinne Kingsbury, Jackie Cohn, Michael Showalter, and Nicky Weinstock.
The story revolves around a blind woman who is the only witness to the murder of her friend with a shady background. The attorneys and law enforcement refuse to accept her testament, and she sets out to find the murderer by herself with the help of her faithful dog, Pretzel. To make the plot lighter, the viewers also get to see how the blind woman manages her flamboyant life that includes her multiple dates and also her job in the guide dog school run by her parents.
Since its release, the series has quickly become popular with fans and has received praise from the critics for the performance of the cast members. However, some have pointed out that the show recycles the tropes of the mystery genre, which some viewers might find off-putting.
