A parent's worst nightmare comes true in new drama series Ten Days in the Valley

Canadian screenwriter Tassie Cameron's new television series, Ten Days in the Valley, tells the story of a woman whose child is kidnapped.

Canadian screenwriter Tassie Cameron is a veteran showrunner, with shows like Rookie Blue under her belt. But never has a show been as personal as her new one. Ten Days in the Valley stars Kyra Sedgwick and it centers on a parent's worst nightmare: the kidnapping of their child. The inspiration came from Cameron's own nightmares and today, she'll tell host Tom Power how she literally transformed a dream into a TV show.
