NBC's hit supernatural drama Medium premieres tonight on NBC! Sofia Vassilieva plays the main character's daughter Ariel in the acclaimed series. The episode incorporates animation, believed to be the first time animation has been integrated into a serious drama. You can see a clip of the scary animation here. The episode was written by the creator and Executive Producer Glenn Gordon Caron.
"I believe this special two-hour episode, 'Four Dreams,' is the perfect way for MEDIUM to begin its third season," said Caron. "It is in many ways, it's our most ambitious and emotional episode to date. The story spans from Indonesia to Phoenix and the larger canvas gave us an opportunity to play with techniques we've never used before, such as animation, which is used to depict middle child's Bridgette's dreams. It also allowed us to explore in greater depth some of the other characters in Allison's world that we know very little about."
