The series stars Ishta as Kirsten Clark. Highly intelligent and persistent, Kirsten has an aptitude for technology but never expected that she’d be hacking into the minds of the recently deceased. Recruited into a covert government agency to be ‘stitched’ into the memories of the dead, Kirsten and the Stitchers team investigates murders and deciphers mysteries that otherwise would have gone to the grave. Kyle Harris (Cameron Goodkin), Ritesh Rajan (Linus Ahluwalia), Salli Richardson-Whitfield (Maggie Baptiste), Allison Scagliotti (Camille Engelson), and Damon Dayoub (Detective Quincy Fisher) also star.

Jeffrey Alan Schechter, Jonathan Baruch and Rob Wolken executive produce.
