Utilizing a visual assistance app, a former homicide detective teams up with an agoraphobe to apprehend elusive criminals in The CW's new crime drama Sight Unseen. The series is a joint Canadian-American production created by Karen Troubetzkoy and Nikolijne Troubetzkoy and co-produced by CTV and The CW.

Inspired by one of the series co-creators recurring experiences with sight loss, Sight Unseen follows Tess Avery, a top homicide detective who is forced to quit the job she loves after an incident in the field nearly results in her partner, Jake Campbell, being killed. This incident ultimately leads to her diagnosis of clinical blindness. Haunted by the cases she left behind and reluctant to accept help or even her diagnosis, Tess turns to an assistance app to connect with a professional seeing-eye guide 3,000 miles away.

An unorthodox partner in Tess' ear, Sunny Patel, guides her via a micro-camera, allowing Tess to pass as sighted. Sunny is agoraphobic and only sees the world outside of her apartment through the eyes of her clients. She is also hiding a secret of her own – a violent event from her past that she hopes to one day solve. Steering Tess through life’s obstacles and crimes, the duo challenges preconceptions about ability, trust, and where to draw the line.
