This series — which premieres Sunday, March 9 at 10/9c and stars House vet Omar Epps — asks the provocative question, “What happens when the people you have mourned and buried suddenly appear on your doorstep as if not a day’s gone by?” The lives of the people of Arcadia, Missouri are forever changed when their deceased loved ones return.

Little is known about Tupper’s Dr. Eric Ward character, save for that he shares a past with Maggie (played by Devin Kelley).

Tupper’s other TV credits include Men In Trees, Samantha Who?, and, more recently, Revenge (on which he continues to recur).
