7:04 am
morning. >> right to ginger tracking the system and where it's heading next. good morning. >> i want to show you what happened early this morning. so just hours ago this is kent island, maryland, that same storm system moving through and looks like apparent tornado damage. we'll find out what it was, but horrible to wake up to and tough for them to be cleaning up after. that same rain causing flash flooding. more than 7 inches falling in parts of delaware. i'll get in a little closer. you can see connecticut feeling it now and really as we go through the rest of the morning hours it's going to be the cape and rhode island and parts of upstate new york that will end up seeing 2 to even 3 inches of rainfall very fast. robin and george. >> all right. now to the story of a busy week in washington. jared kushner, president trump's son-in-law and senior vistaprint speaking in a closed door session on capitol hill. overnight he released a statement detailing contacts with russian officials but denying any collusion as congress prepares to vote on
7:05 am
sanctions punishing russia for meddling in the election and sarah sanders told me president trump will sign the bill. the president set to speak out on health care one day ahead of the senate's last effort to revive the repeal of obamacare. no indication they have the votes or even know which measure they will vote on. the latest on jared kushner from jonathan karl. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning. in that just released 11-page statement, kushner is emphatic in his denial saying, quote, i did not collude, nor know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded with any foreign government. i had no improper contacts. i have not relied on any russian funds to finance my business activities. hopefully he concludes this puts matters to rest. this morning, jared kushner answers questions for the first time from investigators leading the probe into russian meddling in the election. with an office just steps from
7:06 am
the oval office, the low-key kushner is one of the president's top advisers. soft-spoken and rarely heard in public. >> i wanted to welcome everyone to the white house today. >> reporter: now he's a key figure in the russia investigation. he was at that meeting in trump tower that don junior set up with a russian lawyer who was said to have dirt on hillary clinton from the russian government. the committee will also want to talk to him about his own meetings during the transition with the russian ambassador and a russian banker, meetings he did not immediately disclose. >> we have a lot of ground to cover so we expect this is just going to be the first interview. >> reporter: now white house communications director anthony scaramucci says kushner simply doesn't have much to say about the russia issue. >> i predict that will be the last time jared kushner talks about the russians. there's nothing to the story and we'll be moving on. >> reporter: president trump appears increasingly fixated on the story tweeting sunday about the phony russian witch-hunt and
7:07 am
complaining that republicans are doing very little to protect their president. and the president alarmed some in congress over the weekend by declaring his complete power to pardon. family, aides and maybe even himself. that prompted the top democrat in the senate to issue a stern warning to the president. >> if he fired mueller or pardoned himself or someone close to him under investigation, i think it would cause a cataclysm in washington. >> reporter: in his statement, jared kushner also says he had hardly any contact whatsoever with russians during the campaign, in fact, regarding the russian ambassador he says the day after the election, he actually sent somebody an e-mail asking what is the ambassador's name because, robin, he could not recall it. >> all right, jon, thank you very much. we'll have more on this because more on those new sanctions that are punishing russia, the rare bipartisan effort is expected to pass congress with an overwhelming majority. it's also challenged as you
7:08 am
know. mary bruce has more details from capitol hill. good morning. >> reporter: yeah, congress is sending the president a harsh message about russia. republicans and democrats together have now reached a deal to slap moscow with tough sanctions. this is punishment for its election meddling and its aggression towards its neighbors, but this bill would also sharply limit the president's ability to lift or ease any sanctions. it's a pretty remarkable move by this republican-led congress to handcuff the president and a move that the white house opposes but this morning they're signaling that the president will support this bill despite his previous objections. >> his hands seem tied. >> reporter: the president is likely to sign this bill and impose new zappings because he doesn't have much of a choice. if he were to veto this bill it would certainly only add more fuel to this russia fire and it seems congress will have the votes to overturn any veto anyways. now, robin, the house is expected to pass this bill
7:09 am
tomorrow and could be on the president's desk before the august recess. robin. >> we'll see what happens. >> more on this from matthew dowd. our chief legal analyst dan abrams, matt, let me begin with you. the president may not want to sign this bill but he as robin said has no choice tweeting about it sad republicans even some carried over the line on my back do very little to protect their president as the phony witch-hunt continues two groups are laughing, democrats and russians. the president feeling the heat. >> well, he's definitely feeling the heat. this is the first probably bipartisan bill of this congress and it's aimed directly at donald trump and his supposed inability to sort of hold russia accountable in this. the funny thing about that tweet, george, as you and i have talked about is in the four key state, iowa, ohio, pennsylvania and wisconsin all of the gop senators that ran and won one
7:10 am
with bigger margins than donald trump in that. i think donald trump's in a situation right now where republicans who have been steadfast in defending him now are beginning to peel away. >> okay, dan abrams, let's talk about jared kushner's testimony. pretty detailed testimony right there detailing four contacts, denying any collusion. the big question now is will the story hold up when others testify, as well >> that's the most important question because even if it's not under oath, even if this is effectively a kind of off the record conversation, he could still later be charged for making misrepresentations to congress, for example. that's a big if. that would mean he had to be saying something that was later disproven. or proven to be misleading, et cetera. but there are a number of different issues and they actually section them off in his statement that he's trying to cover. everything from the reason that he made omissions in his security clearance to all of his contact with russian and other foreign officials, the statement in and of itself is not going to create any bombshells. the question is going to be what
7:11 am
are the questions asked back and forth. >> what does mueller do with them. a lot of talk over whether the president has the power to pardon himself and whether he's been discussing it and pardon people like jared kushner if they got into trouble. let's focus on this question. does the president have the power to pardon himself? >> probably. >> really? >> on the criminal side does the president have the power to pardon himself? probably. but what does that mean? that means that if he were to pardon himself, he could just protect himself against potentially a criminal charge. he could do it both preemptively but you can't just say i'm pardoning myself against anything that anyone may say about me. there has to be a specific charge that you are pardoning yourself from. it's never happened. never has been done and potential impeachment. >> if the president did do something like that and had the power as chuck schuller said yesterday a cataclysm. >> it would be a huge cataclysm.
7:12 am
he would be further off the fairway than jordan spieth was on number 13 before he won the british open. this would be a huge political problem. legally it's a debate. politically it would be awful. the president would probably directly lead to impeachment if he were to pardon himself. >> thanks very much. we move on to the fight against isis and the battle to take back a key city in syria under its control. raqqah became the effective isis capital in 2014. now, syrian forces are moving in and abc's ian pannell has gone deeper into raqqah and the battle against isis than any other u.s. broadcaster and he joins us from that region. good morning, ian. >> reporter: robin, with mosul pretty much done raqqah and syria is where isis is making its last stand. don't underestimate how important this is. we're talking the capital of isis and the outcome matters to america, europe and the people who live here. raqqah, syria, ground zero in the war against isis, with
7:13 am
u.s.-backed forces locked in a fight to the death. isis snipers who killed many here are moving quickly, the only option. we moved up to the front line with local fighters. the going is as slow as it is dangerous. you can hear the battle for raqqah is ongoing. you've got local forces backed by the united states taking the battle to them. sounds of gunfire and drones overhead and coalition air strikes every few minutes and here we met an american sniper on the front line. a young volunteer from california. >> if a member of isis was in this room right now with all of us, what chance would he give you or you or me? none. >> no part of you that's scared, nervous, anxious at this point? >> no, not really. i came here for this, you know. i've been waiting for years for this. this is the final stand-up fight between us and them. after them, you know, that's it.
7:14 am
>> reporter: for many this is a calling. a chance to reclaim the streets from isis for good. >> that's enough for today. >> reporter: privately coalition commanders admit this battle could drag on for months. no doubt local forces are committed but underequipped to fight isis and as we saw last week america's allies are suffering heavy casualties. >> you can see more of ian's front line reporting on abcnews.com and "world news tonight" with david muir. new details about that human smuggling tragedy in texas where a tractor trailer with more than 100 people inside was discovered in a walmart parking lot. at least nine people died inside the truck and kenneth moton has the latest from san antonio. >> reporter: this morning, one of the worst cases of human smuggling in texas. dozens of undocumented immigrants suffering from intense triple-digit heat.
7:15 am
nine people dead. >> the way they experienced the last few moments of their lives is shocking to the heart of our entire city. >> reporter: immigration agents say as many as 100 people were packed inside the big rig with no air-conditioning parked outside a walmart. a concerned employee alerting people. >> they were in the trailer without any signs of any type of water so looking at a lot of heatstroke, a lot of dehydration. >> reporter: first responders rushing 30 victims including two children to the hospital. 17 in critical condition. some suffering from traumatic brain injuries. the suspected driver james matthew bradley of florida arrested. expected in court this morning. >> all were victims of ruthless human smugglers indifferent to the well-being of their fragile cargo. >> reporter: overnight vigils and a growing memorial. the immigrants reportedly from mexico and central america. with the u.s./mexico border 150 miles homeland security vowing to root out smugglers and
7:16 am
dismantle their networks. investigators say surveillance cameras in this walmart parking lot captured dozens of people jumping out of that truck into waiting cars. some even ran into nearby woods, also i.c.e. agents are searching for those immigrants. we're told later this morning that driver expected to be in court. george. >> okay, kenneth, just a horrible story. amy with the other top headlines. deadly violence in afghanistan. >> that's right and the taliban claiming responsibility for a horrific suicide blast that ripped through kabul this morning killing at least 24 people. a car packed with explosives rammed a bus filled with afghan government employees, all heading to work. the bus was destroyed. dozens of people were also wounded including children on that bus. well, new images are now revealing how john mccain is handling his brain cancer diagnosis. he tweeted this photo of he and a friend relaxing in a creek at his arizona ramp and his daughter sharing a photo of the pair after a hike over the weekend. 23-year-old texan jordan spieth winning the british open

around the house of her and we talk about her and it's hard because obviously catherine didn't know her and cannot provide that level of detail so i do regularly talk about her and just try to remind them that there are two grandmothers. there were two grandmothers in their lives. >> reporter: also in the documentary diana's good friend sir elton john remembering her big heart and her fearless role as an aids activist. >> it is considered to be a gay disease and for someone who was within the royal family and who was a woman and who was straight and just have someone care from the other side was an incredible gift. look at her face in every photograph. there is a positive, wonderful glow. she could walk into a room of people and make them feel as if everything was great. >> reporter: and william thinks diana would have loved being a grandmother. knowing how she was as a mom he jokes he feels pretty certain she'd be the type that would show up around bathtime getting the kids all riled up right

8:18 am
concern that users have about these supplements so looked at a 13-year period, a lot of calls made over a quarter of a million calls about exposure. >> and a lot of those calls were because of a certain age group which is shocking. >> this really got my attention, robin. 70% of those calls involved children under the age of 6. girls more than boy, obviously this was unintentional but it's not just about who was concerned for this exposure, it's about what was being taken so take a look at this list. the variety of supplements that generated these calls, miss lanous which includes anything, vitamin, supplements, homeopathic remedies, over 40%. botanicals like mao wong, that's a estimate lapse. hormonal like melatonin, 15% and other like algae, anything else, we should note these numbers don't come to 100%. that's because there were very small amounts of random
8:19 am
supplement. >> tell us how these affect the body. >> people think natural equals safe. i've said it again and again that's not true. to be clear most reports were minor and didn't breyer any medical attention. not talking about the efficacy or quality, just the concern but these if taken by someone too young or in the improper dosage can increased heart rate, nausea, diarrhea, stomach cramp, in some cases liver have for people. >> what got my attention those kids and, again, most of these do not come with kid-proof tops so keep them away from children. i think a huge resource, i use it myself every day in my office, drugs.com, check drug interactions, food interactions.
8:20 am
supplement interactions, that is a great free resource for everyone, lay, public and professionals alike. we say that again and again, any of these can do damage. have a poison control number handy and never ever induce vomiting if you think you or someone else has -- >> don't? >> without checking with a poison control center, that can actually do more harm. >> great advice as always. thanks. another check of the weather with ginger. >> yes, thank you so much, robin. look at the this is your graham -- "g.m.a." moment, this is pongo. he is is one-year-old baby, how fun is that. this made us scream summer. share your "g.m.a." moment, anything that makes you smile,

8:22 am
stores like costco, sam's, b.j.'s, there's something you need to know, man cannot live on free samples alone. if you get hungry while shopping, what healthy options are there in the store's cafe and god forbid you have your kids with you. what do you feed them? big box stores dominate large chunks of time in my life. ikea for furniture, b.j.'s, sam's club and costco for everything else. i can easily be in in this store for an hour or more and sometimes i have to bring my kids with me. so here's the challenge. what are the healthiest choices to feed myself and the kids from the store cafe? >> there's nowhere else to go. you're at the mercy. >> i take a bevy of options from costco, bj's and sam's club and nutritionist maya feller. massive portions. this is a normal hot dog. this is a costco hotdog.
8:23 am
a quarter of a pound. it's double, maybe 2 1/2 times as big. this thing is massive. >> and the thing to remember when you're eating something that is double the size, you're getting double everything. >> same with the chicken bake. >> this chicken bake is like a chicken loaf. here's a hot pocket. how many do you think fit into this. this is two pot pockets. >> so you're getting double whether or not you want it. >> the nutrition info in that chicken bake reflects the portion, 112% of your daily soldup, 230% of your cholesterol, 770 calories. we reached out to costco for their preferred healthier choice item but they declined to participate. but taking a look at the menu one of the healthiest options is the caesar salad and while it comes with a significant amount of protein and limited carbs, compare the rest of the nutritional info to two large slices of pepperoni pizza. the salgd with all that added dressing has 14 more grams of
8:24 am
fat. 50% more sodium and more than twice the cholesterol. >> which is an absolute shock because it's not like we're standing there telling people eat pizza, don't eat the salad but when you weigh the two and look at them side by side this actually is likely the better option, the dressing is what's carrying the majority of the calories, also the majority of the sodium and the fat. >> sam's club offered us thet p says -- >> 47 grams of sugar is a huge amount of sugar. >> by's partnered with dunkin' donuts. now, this egg white bake is pretty nutritious. 18 grams of protein and three grams of fiber, 25% of your daily calcium. bottom line, when it comes to big box eateries, your best options may be reducing your portion side and when it comes to your kids -- >> if i can shop without my kids. s that is slooz what i'm going to do.

>> best advice for eating healthy is to skip the cafes. that's what maya says and go into the aisles purchasing fresh fruit, cheese stick, prepared veg gist and then you pay for that then go do the bulk of your shopping. i mean a lot of these big box stores are trying to improve low cost, fresh item, lara so maybe steer away from the cafes and stick with the unprocessed foods. >> any grab and go options that work with healthy lifestyle in your opinion? >> you know, i think starbucks is an example of somebody who is doing a great job. they have those boxes with nut, fruits, cheese, hard boiled eggs. i mean it's got to be tough for retailers and fast food outlets to package perishables like this but you know what, if we want to get healthy this is the way we have to go. >> yep. absolutely. great tips. becky worley, we thank you. coming up don't go anywhere, anybody, because rob lowe and family are here. and we are taking care of

8:27 am
monday, july 24. i'm tamala edwards let's head over to matt pellman looking at i-95. >> reporter: i-95 has been a thorn in our side all morning long. you hit the breaks southbound around bridge street. then you hit a disabled truck taking out a lane. farther south it's like a beach under the ben franklin bridge, sand on the roadway, a tractor-trailer jackknifed and spilled fuel all over the road. traffic needs to roll slowly over that. schuylkill expressway slow in both directions heading toward the vine because of a crash. mount laurel, you get the idea, a crash near route 73.
8:28 am
taking out the left lane in both directions. slow going along 295 in mount laurel. the garden state parkway near somers point has cleared. we're back up to pace there. >> let's head outside to david murphy and talk about the stormy night and what's ahead. >> reporter: lots of rain and flooding on the roads here and there. storm tracker 6 live down scan shows you light rain passing through philadelphia. i've got a light sprinkle on the terrace. steadier rain east of allentown and more cells pushing through delaware and getting ready to cross the bay in south jersey. 73 degrees in philadelphia, a little bit muggy. warm and humid afternoon high of 87. during the afternoon and evening at any time there there could ba pop-up shower. tomorrow, clouds and sun, 81. beautiful on wednesday, 83. >> "g.m.a." sits down with paula patten with her new

8:31 am
crisis and it could have been worse. >> a cry for help. >> a cry for help. but it was a once in a lifetime. i'm an adrenaline junkie. matthew lowe who you'll meet later talked me into it because he loves the ocean and probably took an insurance policy out on me hoping for a different result? we'll bring them up here in a moment. yes, you are an adrenaline junkie and your bigfoot, ghost -- >> when i was a kid i loved scooby-doo. >> totally. >> who didn't love scooby-doo. >> bigfoot, sure. all the guys in the audience. so the -- "the lowe files," if you took scooby doo, "the x-files" and "anthony bourdain, parts unknown" side by side. it's dad getting time with his
8:32 am
boys. >> what more could you ask for. >> bigfoot. >> you went in search of bigfoot. >> not only did we go in search of bigfoot but bigfoot and the wood ape. are you familiar with the wood ape. >> are they related. >> they're the same species, they say. >> okay, rob. >> yeah, no, i'm just going to say it. you just have to watch the show. >> let's watch a little bit of it right now. >> this is wood ape. >> so it converts elect electromagnetic frequencies into words. >> this hallway sucks. >> hi. >> pie. >> this is where the kitchen is. >> dessert. >> we get to the kitchen and the voice says pie. look, for the record i don't know about any of this stuff. i'm just reporting what's going on, okay. decide for yourselves. [ applause ] >> come on. come on.
8:33 am
come up here. >> so that was our first episode. we go to the most haunted building in america and that device is a database of words that will start speaking if spirits are present. they say. and we -- >> the most haunted building in america. >> it's a closed down boys reformty in eyione, california. >> did they say why it's so haunted? did something horrible. >> there's two famous murders and what must have gone on with -- yeah, at one point that device says the name of the murdered -- >> oh, my goodness. >> guy, johnny, matthew, are you guys skeptics or believers. >> varying levels of skepticism between all of us. >> healthy. we have to keep him grounded. >> you're saying he has the least skepticism. >> oh, by far. >> i always say he is a borderline conspiracy theorist. >> how about your mom? >> she just wants to make sure
8:34 am
we're safe. >> yeah, she could careless about big foot. was very worried about ticks. that was her thing. she's like -- but, now, johnny is the skeptic but he's also -- also the most scared. so go figure. that's what i don't get. you can't have it both way. >> it's not mutually exclusive. skeptic and scared. >> well because he's such a skeptic if they showed up ud's be scared too. >> thank you. >> what say you? you've been a little quiet over here. >> i'm the middle ground. i want to be -- until i can prove it i'm not going to say i believe it but there's a lot of evidence in the show that made me question some long held skepticism >> that's cool. >> about the wood ape or bigfoot? >> both. >> or scooby-doo. >> scooby-doo. >> i have a question for you boys. we know rob for so many years, such a big star. what's he like at home? >> he's a goofball.
8:35 am
you'd think he was our age. he acts like our age. >> he looks like he's your age. >> well, don't inflate his ego too much. [ applause ] >> there's a lot of us driving around in the car in the show and if you want to see what he's really like just those scenes, that's just him for sure. >> really the fun of it at the end of the day is really getting out of the house and having an adventure with your kids. i wrote two books and one of the themes i talked about in the book all of us as parents don't spend enough time creating memories. and they don't have to be an elaborate show like this but, you know, at the end of the day that's all we have are our memories and so for us to be able to get out and to do this and to have it documented has been an amazing gift. >> for us a lot of fun to watch. >> and hopefully a lot of fun to watch. >> thanks for coming in, guys. "the lowe files" premieres august 2nd on a & e. small company entrepreneurs and the secrets to their

8:38 am
welcome back to "good morning america" on a monday morning. jacob and i were shark wook on discovery, last night was the highly anticipated phelps versus sharks. there's so many great shows in store.
8:39 am
tonight you'll see something never caught on a tape before, it is a mako shark attacking another one. let's go ahead and get a check a lot closer to home. you're from philadelphia, right? philadelphia shoutout on "g.m.a." light rain pushing into south jersey, the exclusive accuweather seven-day forecast, more spotty pop-up showers and thunderstorms at times, warm and muggy, 87. over to you. >> thank you, ginger. thank you so much. i cannot wait for you to meet as my momma said these young'uns. taking care of business paying it forward with these entrepreneurs. we met brian last year when he
8:40 am
shared the story behind his pasta company. it is thriving. glad to hear that and now he is a mentor and but first here's their story. it's the chickpea pasta that is disrupting the food industry. >> our mission is to make knew tissues foods more accessible. >> he went from testing a homemade recipe out of his apartment to developing the fastest growing positive that brand in the country. now sold in 5,000 stores nationwide. >> thank you very much. >> when brian appeared on "gma" last year, he had an important message to share. >> if you can find a mentor who will push you towards the next step it makes a huge step. >> months later yogurt giants chobani selected banza to participate in their inaugural chobani food incubator program designed to support the development of young brands like banza and start-up companies like misfit juicery? we're on a mission to fight food
8:41 am
waste, 20 billion pounds of food go to waste because they're misfit in sizes or shapes so making delicious cold pressed juice out of those misfut foods. >> the power of mentorship going full circle. >> started the company when he was 21 years old. we had no experience in food or anything. >> it wasn't exactly the easiest process as i'm sure you've experienced. >> i want to be there for them because there were so many who were there for me. >> look how he's grown. brian rue duffel and misfit juicery co-founders, ann yang and phil wong. love what you're doing. i just want to cry. when you were here, you know, you were just starting out and banza is doing bonkers. you know how i feel about this product. >> thank you so much. >> how do you keep it going forward? >> oh, you know, i think that we just -- we have this really
8:42 am
strong mission and it's to change the way people think about food for the better and i think that's one of the things that pushes us to keep trying. >> tell them how it is better than traditional pasta. how much more protein, fiber. >> double the protein, four types the fiber and nearly half the net carbs of traditional pasta and so we think it's the next generation of pasta. >> oh, my gosh. i tell you. i was having trouble as i was getting older with wheat and it really has helped a great deal and i just absolutely love it. hey, guys. so how does this work out? how has he helped you, phil? >> yeah, so brian has been a huge mentor of ours. we met at the chobani incubator and showing us how to build a team because brian has an awesome culture at banza and a lot of attention gets focused on us as entrepreneurs but it's the team and culture we build that creates the companies and products we have here. >> i got a little ahead of myself. when we say misfit and the reason the audience is so quiet because they're eating.
8:43 am
and they're drinking the juice. so they've been very quiet but explain about misfit because it's every bit as nutritional but it's aesthetically it's not pleasing so doesn't get sold. >> at misfit we're on a mission to fight food waste because we let 20 billion pounds of produce go -- >> how much. >> 20 billion so look at this. like an apple might be a little bit dimple the like this or a carrot -- it has three legs so farmers can't sell that to a grocery store but, of course, it's nutrition and we put it into our juice and we started the company as college students and had four crates of ugly peaches and a borrowed blender and now we're on our way to misfit foods. >> because if you went in as a consumer and went in you would not buy this in the store but -- it wouldn't even be in the store to begin with.
8:44 am
>> what advice -- oh, mr. rudolph, are you imparting? >> yes. >> what are you sharing with them? >> so i think there are a lot of things. three years ago i was 23 and had no experience in food and i think there are a lot of things we did right but also a few mistakes we made along the way and working with grocery stores can be challenging and so as up and coming food companies that want to change the way that people think about food for the better we're the underdogs and we need to help each other so if we can be helping misfit succeed that's a huge win. >> it's wonderful, i'm seeing, community of entrepreneurs wanting to help one another. both of the groups started in college and your apartment, both of you and what has it meant to have someone like brian who can navigate the way for you. >> absolutely. brian is entire team has been so helpful both in personal and professional ways about to launch a brand with whole foods and how to pop on the shelf and make the opportunity a
8:45 am
successful one but i think there are a lot of ups and downs to entrepreneurship that people don't think about. good days and bad days and having someone walk you through that and really talk you through the challenges you go through means the world to us and i think for phil and i we think the entrepreneurship is about learning how to build a community well and for banza & misfit, our company has been built upon a thousand favors by people we love so we really appreciate the support. >> i can say this firsthand. both of the products are excellent. you do have -- do you all agree? [ applause ] i mean, really. so it's wonderful in that regard. so, if somebody is watching and have a start-up company what is the major advice you give to them. >> especially as a young entrepreneur, you have to admit that there's probably a lot that you don't know. there's a lot that you don't know you don't know and so don't be afraid to reach out to people who have done what you hope to do and ask them for advice because chances are somebody helped them too and they're going to be more than excited to pay it forward.
8:46 am
>> so wonderful that you and everyone at banza paying it forward and also thank you very much because you're making good healthy food accessible and also you're environmental conscious in the things you're doing and it's really appreciated. [ applause ] >> from watching you. you will be at whole foods. >> in new york city and d.c. >> everyone in our audience going home with a box of banza & misfit juice. holding the carrot. paula patton is live. come on back.
8:47 am
8:48 am
as robin said we're back with our friend paula patton starring in a new -- yeah. starring in a new abc thriller called "somewhere between" and she plays a local tv producer
8:49 am
whose daughter is murdered but gets a chance to go back in time and try to save her. take a look. >> like we really surprised her, huh? >> don't say anything until you blow the candles or the wish won't come true. >> is it really you? >> who else would it be? [ applause ] >> so obviously something supernatural is going on here that your character is able to go back and try to save your daughter from this horrific crime. can you give us a little bit of intel. >> that's the only bit of the show is supernatural. if you and i were sitting here and a black hole was here and we jumped in and got to go back eight days but there everything is reality so it kind of is that thought that you know what would you do if you could change your fate. >> stop asking the questions i'm about to ask you.
8:50 am
i was just going to say to you if you could go back, is it only eight days in the show. >> i want to take it further. if you could go back and relive something, what would you choose? >> relive, i think the things you want to relaugh -- >> or change. >> i wouldn't change anything because you know how that is, you change one thing and you change another. but i like that thing but now that's changed so -- like everybody i've stayed up at night regretting things and why did i do that, say that, but at the end of the day i really do believe everything happens for a reason. on my show i get a chance. >> you get this incredible chance and you do stunts. you've had roles where you've learned different skill, sword fighting, knife throwing but something in the show you said was very difficult that you didn't expect. >> she knows -- the laura you meet at the beginning isn't the one at the end. she becomes quite a beast and this animalistic side comes out of her.
8:51 am
the real scary stuff was being in cold water, in this freezing cold water and not like -- that was the toughest bit to be honest with you but until you're in it, you can't explain it because it sounds so silly especially in the middle of the summer. >> no stunt doubles for the cold water scenes. >> i should have talked about that with them but i didn't do it. no, no, you know what, sometimes you look forward to those moments so you can make it as real as possible for people. >> you're a purist. you want to get it right. >> it helps. >> yeah, it definitely helps so want to ask you a little about your cute boy. how old can julian now. >> 7. >> congratulations. he is so adorable. >> and obviously probably too young to watch the show. >> yeah. >> but i hear he does have a favorite. >> a favorite what? >> he's in superheroes. >> we recently watched "wonder woman" and that's his favorite. >> i'm loving that. >> yeah, absolutely. no, i love that too. i thought that's really great, unique superhero that at the end love is the answer.
8:52 am
i couldn't be more -- >> she's just as strong and powerful -- nothing to be said about the guy superheroes but she is fantastic. coming back for a sequel so tell julian he's going to have another one. >> we'll watch it like a hundred more types. >> just because we like to give tip, hacks on the show, our friend paula has the best hack i've ever heard. you never get bitten by mosquitoes. >> i mean i wouldn't say never. this is true. >> will you tell everybody your strange trick. >> it's true. well, you know, anyways it's like yellow and you put it in a spray bottle, listerine and helps keep the mosquitoes away. i know. what are you going to do. >> yes. i read that you do that. i tried it. i was minty fresh for days. >> yeah, paula, thank you very much. really excited about the show, guys, it's called "somewhere between." it premieres tonight on abc.
