Detective drama with a hint of comedy, 'Castle' will premiere in March to fill in the Mondays slot.
One more promo has been released for the arrival of "Castle", a crime drama slash comedy series which is lined-up by ABC for the midseason. The new program starring Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic will premiere on Monday, March 9 at 10/9c.
Fillion plays Richard Castle, a wildly famous mystery novelist who is bored with his own success, but learns that a real-world copycat killer has started staging murder scenes depicted in his novels. Rick is soon questioned by NYPD Detective Kate Beckett, a very bright, aggressive detective who keeps her investigations under tight rein. Rick and Kate's styles instantly clash, yet sparks begin to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance as Castle steps in to help find the killer.
And once that case is solved, he and Beckett build upon their new relationship as they look to solve strange homicides in New York - as much fun as one can have with death & murder. Castle is kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother, Martha Rodgers and quick- witted teenage daughter Alexis.
