Description

Medium is an American supernatural drama series created by Glenn Gordon Caron and inspired by the real-life story of research medium Allison Dubois, starring Patricia Arquette as a young wife and mother who, since childhood, has been struggling to make sense of her dreams and visions of dead people.

Allison DuBois is a strong-willed young mother of three, a devoted wife and law student who begins to suspect that she can talk to dead people, see the future in her dreams and read people's thoughts.

Fearing for her mental health, she turns for support to her husband Joe, an aerospace engineer, who slowly comes to believe that what his wife is telling him just might be true.

The real challenge is convincing her boss, D.A. Devalos - and the other doubters in the criminal justice system - that her psychic abilities can give them the upper hand when it comes to solving violent and horrifying crimes whose mysteries often reside with those who live beyond the grave.

Information on certain people or crimes come to her in dreams or visions in cryptic forms, and never really mean what they seem to.

All of her daughters appear to have inherited their mother's gift, with Ariel and Bridgette also having visions or dreams, which usually occur when their mother is in a bind in searching for answers to her own dreams.

Allison's younger half brother, Michael, has the family gift too, but doesn't like to acknowledge it much, since it always seems to bring him trouble.

Allison is often accompanied by a local Arizona cop, and friend to Manuel Devalos, Det. Lee Scanlon, who at first did not believe that she had a "gift".

Allison often bends the rules of the law when she is determined to stop a crime about which she's had a vision from happening.
