Alaska Daily Trailer Gives Us A Sneak Peak
The official trailer of the series is also revealed. The trailer begins with, “You’re a born reporter, you’re one of the best.” Stanley has arrived to offer the main character a job. And this job could change her life forever.
The girl went missing two years ago in Alaska, and her death is part of a pattern of murdered indigenous women. Eileen is given the news because she is a fiercely talented journalist who “breaks big stories.”
No one is going to do anything about the missing person case, not the cops, not the politicians, and no new information has been introduced in over two years. But the girls aren’t here to unwind.
“Alaska doesn’t need another corrupt reporter spewing lies,” someone says to Eileen in the trailer. “Go back to New York before something bad happens.” Someone knows something. In the end, Eileen says, “We’re gonna break this story.”

Swank explained why she decided to return to the big screen.
“You know, I love people and I love what makes them tick. And I love people who persevere through adversity. I love the outsiders, I love the underdog. What makes us all one person? At the heart of these stories, all everyone wants is to be seen and everyone deserves justice.
I think a lot of the roles that I choose have that theme in one way or another and I feel like Eileen Fitzgerald is a truth seeker. She’s an investigative truth seeker, and she wants to make sure that justice is done and that people see the truth in situations.
I feel that that aligns with what people in the world want right now, they don’t want to be lied to anymore.”
