Based on Catherine Ryan Howard’s international best-selling novel 56 Days, the story centers on Jogia’s Oliver and Cameron’s Ciara who, after a random encounter in a supermarket, fall fast and dangerously hard for each other.

Fifty-six days later, homicide detectives find a dead body in Oliver’s apartment — the unidentified person brutally murdered and their body intentionally decomposed — which raises questions about who killed who. The show will intercut between the day of the investigation and the duration of the young lovers’ twisted affair in what is described as a “unique crime story” and an “erotic, psychological thriller.”
