Blind spot centers on Ashley, who is nipping at the heels of a middle-class life in Oakland until Miles, her partner of 12 years and father of their son, is suddenly incarcerated, leaving her to experience a chaotic and humorous existential crisis when she is forced to move in with Miles’ mother and half-sister. The series stars Jasmine Cephas Jones (“#freerayshawn”) as “Ashley”; Benjamin Turner (recording artist) as “Earl”, who just got out of jail, wears an ankle monitor and is just trying to kill time and lay low; Candace Nicholas-Lippman (“Good Trouble”) as “Janelle”, Ashley’s close friend who has just returned to the neighborhood after spending many years in Bali; Jaylen Barron (“Free Reign”) as “Trish,” Miles’ half-sister, who might be wilder than him; Atticus Woodward (“Shameless”) as “Sean,” the sweet, smart, and energetic son of Ashley and Miles; Helen Hunt (“Mad About You”) as “Rainey,” Miles’ mother who is opinionated and puts family first; and Rafael Casal reprising his role as “Miles”, Ashley’s partner of 12 years and father of their son.
