Based on the popular Norwegian drama Øyevitne, EYEWITNESS is a crime drama that centers on an unsolved murder and the two teens who saw it take place. When Philip Shea (Tyler Young) and Lukas Waldenbeck (James Paxton) witness a multiple homicide after a romantic encounter, they decide to keep what they saw a secret to protect their reputations. But when Phillip's foster mom, local sheriff Helen Torrance (Julianne Nicholson), begins to investigate with the help of partner Tony (Matt Murray) against the wishes of FBI agent Kamilah Davis (Tattiawna Jones), she soon realizes that there is much more to the case that meets the eye. But as she digs deeper, she becomes more disconnected from Philip, much to the dismay of her husband (played by Gil Bellows). Meanwhile, the lone surviving killer (Warren Christie), will stop at nothing to remain hidden.
