Here’s how to watch the new series
ABC’s new series, Alaska daily, features Hilary Swank in the lead role as journalist Eileen Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald moves from New York to work for the Alaska Daily newspaper in Anchorage, Alaska, where he investigates murdered Indigenous women. So how can viewers see the new series? Here’s what you should know.
Alaska Daily brings Hilary Swank’s character, Eileen Fitzgerald, to life
Hilary Swank will play Eileen Fitzgerald Alaska daily after being fired from her New York publication. While in Alaska, she covers an ongoing case involving the murder of Native American women — and her cheeky attitude doesn’t always hit the locals right.
“She calls BS when she sees it. She just speaks her mind,” Swank explained of her character, according to the Associated Press and published by Yahoo. “A lot of people call her rude, but if she were a man nobody would call her rude. … Probably five years ago there would not have been such a female character on television. So it’s nice to be entering these new waters and having the opportunity to do so.”
Additional stars joining the cast include Jeff Perry as Stanley Cornik, Matt Malloy (from College Girls Sex Life) as Bob Young, Meredith Holzman as Claire Muncy, and Grace Dove as Rosalind “Roz” Friendly.
