About the show: Reminiscent of film noir favorites, this stylish mystery is a psychological thrill ride. During a sleepless night, a troubled woman gazes out the window of her Manhattan townhouse and sees a dead man in the building across the way… or does she? With twists and turns and ulterior motives galore, Night Watch leads audiences to wonder: If no one believes you, did it really happen?

Character breakdown:

Elaine Wheeler (40s-50s) An heiress with a troubled past. Elaine is strong-willed yet, given recent events, on the edge of sanity and struggling to figure out whom she can trust. Often frantic and full of fear.
