Gillian Anderson fans! Fretting about what to watch now that the second season of The Fall is coming to an end this evening with a feature length finale? Fear not, because in early January UKTV’s Watch channel will be launching Crisis, a new 13 episode thriller starring Anderson and TVWise has a first look clip from the new series.
Created by Rand Ravich, Crisis picks up when the children of Washington, D.C.’s elite, top-of-their-industry CEOs, international diplomats, political power players and even the president’s son are kidnaped. Now with some of the country’s most powerful parents at the mercy of one vengeful mastermind, the question arises: How far would you go and what would you become to ensure your child’s safe return? With so many parents and dignitaries put into play with nowhere to turn and no one to trust, this unthinkable scenario grows from the select families at risk to an entire nation at stake
Filmed inbetween seasons of The Fall, the show unfortunately lasted only one season before being cancelled by NBC in May after it failed to pull in strong ratings on Sundays – a night NBC hadn’t used to launch a new drama series in more than 5 years. Its was produced by 20th Century Fox Television and, in addition to Gillian Anderson, also stars Lance Gross, Dermot Mulroney, Max Martini, Max Schneider, Halston Sage, Rachael Taylor, Stevie Lynn Jones, Michael Beach, James Lafferty and Joshua Erenberg.
The first look clip, which runs close to two minutes shows Meg Fitch (Gillian Anderson) being quizzed about who might have a motive to kidnap her daughter by FBI Special Agent Susie Dunn (Rachael Taylor), who also happens to be Meg’s sister.
