MEDIUM BACK FOR ANOTHER SEASON…

Published August 14th, 2006 - 08:42 GMT

Medium summons a second season of paranormal investigation starring Emmy Award winner Patricia Arquette who won the Emmy for "Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the 57th Annual Emmy Awards. Season 2 of Medium hits our TV Land screens from August 18th every Friday at 20:00 KSA.

From Emmy Award-winning executive producer, creator and director Glenn Gordon Caron (“Moonlighting”) comes another season of Medium, the chilling drama series inspired by the real-life story of research medium Allison DuBois. Patricia Arquette stars as a young wife and mother who, since childhood, has been struggling to make sense of her dreams and visions of dead people.

Series creator Glenn Gordon Caron admits, a surprising amount of serendipity went into the breakout success of Medium, the drama series which has just been signed up for a third season.  He began to see potential after meeting and talking with the real Allison Dubois, who gave Caron insight into the startling contradictions her daily life entails. "This woman has a kind of radio in her head that is permanently tuned to death, and she's a mum with three kids," Caron says. "She has a husband who would seem to be her antithesis, a scientist whose religion is the physical facts of the world.”That's what appealed to me. How do you reconcile all that? You get up in the morning, pour a bowl of Cheerios, you make sure the kids have done their homework and oh, by the way, there are three dead people in the kitchen."

Patricia was the first and only choice for the lead role and is equally as excited about the filming of Season 2 and the pick up for a third season of the hit show. "The first thing I thought was, well, it could be fun in just a spooky way, but Glenn had written so many more levels in there, and that was exciting to play." Exciting, but exhausting, too, as Arquette quickly learned.  "Actually, everyone said, `You know that's the hardest job in show business,' because even though we have a big cast, it's not actually an ensemble show where they focus on a different group of people for a little while," the actress says. "But I do love all the people that I work with and I love my job and I'm excited when I read a new script, to see where it goes. So I'm definitely not complaining!"
