The official logline for the series reads:

Ella (Bilson), the former star of a hit cop series, is fresh out of-rehab following a bender of epic proportion. Desperate to restart her career, she talks her way into shadowing rough-and-tumble private investigator Eddie (Cibrian) as research for a potential comeback role.

Though lone wolf Eddie resents the babysitting gig, high-spirited Ella proves herself to be surprisingly valuable, drawing on her acting skills and 200 episodes of playing a detective. When the press touts Ella’s role in solving a high-profile case, Eddie finds his phone ringing off the hook with new clients looking to hire the pair.

The procedural drama hails from Castle executive producers Terri Edda Miller and Andrew W. Marlowe. 

It will debut Thursday, June 21 at 10/9c aka the slot Quantico has been airing in over the last few weeks.

ABC canceled Quantico last week after creative overhaul failed to add some juice in the ratings department. 

However, Quantico will now finish out the rest of its run on Fridays at 8/7c, effective May 25.

Quantico Season 3 is averaging just 2.3 million viewers and a 0.5 rating among adults 18-49. It is off over 30 percent in the demo year-to-year. 

It's surprising it hasn't been pulled from the schedule entirely or sent to Saturdays because it's clear viewers are rejecting the show.
