Storyline

Tru Davies, a medical grad student in Boston whose grant is suddenly pulled out from under her, takes a job at a local morgue. There, she discovers that she has the power to "re-live" the previous day over again to help the people who wrongly ended up dead. She uses this gift not only to save lives, but to help her trouble-plagued family - her older sister Meredith, a lawyer and drug addict in denial; and her younger, irresponsible, slacker, gambling brother Harrison. Written by An Eliza Dushku fan

Trivia

After the first season finale, FOX was almost close to cancelling the show, but didn't because the ratings in the middle of the first season improved, and since its competitor NBC's Friends (1994) was in their final season, FOX decided to renew this series and give it another chance. After renewing it for a second season, FOX rolled back the episode order from thirteen to six on the week of filming the sixth episode. On the last day of filming, the cast and crew were told that the show had been cancelled. See more »

User Reviews

pretty good...hope it lasts
31 October 2003 | by oliverburnettSee all my reviews

I watched the premiere of Tru Calling last night and it was pretty good. I am not sure if this show will last because its time slot sucks(between survivor and friends) but I plan to watch it anyway( I will tape it because it is on opposite Survivor) The only thing I am concerned about is that if every episode is the same formula of Tru going back in time a day then the show will get old quickly. However, I will give it a shot and see what it will do. Eliza Dushku is great! I have been a fan of her work since she was in That Night. If you are a sci-fi/horror fan give Tru Calling a try before its too late!
