Gillian Anderson’s latest US series has been snapped up by Watch, UKTV’s flagship pay entertainment channel.
The thirteen part Crisis also stars Dermot Mulroney and follows the abduction of several children of Washington D.C’s most powerful players, including the President’s son.
With some of the country’s most influential 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?
As parents and dignitaries are put into play with nowhere to turn and no one to trust, panic sets in and puts the entire nation at stake.
The show is the latest big-name signing for Watch, which has also bagged the UK premier rights to J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón’s Believe and Abrams’ Almost Human.
The channel’s General Manager, Steve Hornsey, said: “Watch brings its audience another irresistible UK premiere.
“Crisis is an exciting and original conspiracy thriller full of unexpected plot twists. It captures the current enthusiasm for political intrigue in a fast-paced and dramatic character story, brought to life by a fantastic ensemble cast.”
Steve Cornish, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution added, “We are really excited to be launching Crisis on Watch this season. It is the perfect home for this roller-coaster ride of a TV show. Viewers better buckle up!”
