5USA has acquired the Chris Noth fronted FBI drama Gone after striking a deal with international distributor NBCUniversal International Distribution. The show’s twelve episode first season will premiere on the channel next month.
Gone tells the story of Kit “Kick” Lanigan, the survivor of a famous child-abduction case, and Frank Novak, the FBI agent who rescued her. Determined never to fall victim again, as an adult Kick has trained herself in martial arts and the use of firearms. She finds her calling when Novak persuades her to join a special task force dedicated to solving abductions and missing persons’ cases.
Paired with former Army intelligence officer John Bishop, along with other team members, Agent Kennedy and James Finley, the team work to solve cases and bring victims home. The drama series, which is based on the Chelsea Cain novel One Kick, hails from NBCUniversal International studios (in partnership with France’s TF1 and Germany’s RTL) and stars Leven Rambin, Chris Noth, Danny Pino, Tracie Thoms and Andy Mientus.
This marks the second deal that NBCUniversal International Distribution has sealed for Gone in the UK. The distributor previously licensed first window rights to NBCU’s flagship UK channel Universal. Gone aired on Universal back in spring 2018. Gone is the second series to land at 5USA for a repeat run in the past few months. The Channel 5 owned digi-net also recently picked up TNT’s Eric McCormack drama Perception in a deal with Disney Media Distribution. 5USA also holds repeat rights to such shows Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Taken and Castle. Their sole first run acquisition is Chicago PD.
