The first season of CBS’ drama series Hostages will receive its UK premiere on Channel 4 on Saturday January 11th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created by Jeffrey Nachmanoff, Hostages is based on an Israeli format and follows a premiere surgeon thrust into a chilling political conspiracy when her family is taken hostage by rogue FBI Agent Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott). Dr Ellen Sanders (Toni Collette) and her family are held captive in their home by Carlisle, a desperate man doing the wrong thing for the right reasons, who orders her to assassinate the President (James Naughton) when she operates on him. His highly skilled accomplices include his brother-in-law Kramer (Rhys Coiro), whose loyalty to Carlisle will be tested; quick-tempered and intimidating Archer (Billy Brown), an ex-military man with a razor-sharp tongue; and the only woman involved, Sandrine (Sandrine Holt), a mysterious last-minute replacement to the team. With her family’s life in peril, Ellen faces an incomprehensible moral dilemma in order to save her overbearing husband Brian (Tate Donovan), her secretive daughter Morgan (Quinn Shephard) and her not-so-innocent son Jake (Mateus Ward). In this high-stakes standoff between Ellen and Carlisle, fraught with tremendous national and personal consequences, the choices between right and wrong become even more blurred. The drama series is produced by Warner Bros. Television & Bruckheimer Television with Jerry Bruckheimer, Nachmanoff, Chayim Sharir, Jonathan Littman, Rotem Shamir and Omri Givon serving as executive producers.
