Bringing two very different people together has been a common trope in television to mark the beginning of a new story. Police procedural dramas, in particular, employ this technique to give the audience a duo that they can root for. Andrew Marlowe and Teri Edda Miller created such a series for ABC which became one of its most popular shows of that time. The name of that show was ‘Castle’ and, no matter how it ended, it received a lot of love from the audience. Marlowe (who is also credited for writing ‘Heat Wave’, a novel penned under the name of Richard Castle) and Miller and reunited with ABC to deliver another buddy cop (sort of) drama, ‘Take Two’. It follows the story of an actress assisting a P.I in order to research for her upcoming role.
