Lance Gross In NBC's 'Crisis'

Titled CrisisNBC has set Sunday nights at 10pm to broadcast the Lance Gross thriller from writer/executive producer Rand Ravich. It's premiere episode will air tonight, March 16, 2014, at 10/9c.

Gross stars alongside Dermot Mulroney and Gillian Anderson, in what is described as an emotionally-charged political action thriller set in Washington DC, that will follow Marcus Finley (played by Gross), an idealistic Secret Service agent who finds himself at the center of an international crisis on his first day on the job as the President’s son’s protection, when the son, along with several of his schoolmates, are kidnapped. 

Here's NBC's official synopsis for the series:

It’s field trip day for the students of Ballard High School, a place that educates the children of Washington, D.C.’s elite, top-of-their-industry CEOs, international diplomats, political power players and even the president’s son. But when their bus is ambushed on a secluded rural road, the teenagers and their chaperones are taken, igniting a national crisis. 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. 

Michael Beach plays the FBI Director who's managing the crisis, joining Rachael TaylorStevie Lynn JonesHalston SageJoshua ErenbergMax SchneiderJames Lafferty, and Max Martini, rounding out the cast.

Phillip Noyce (SaltPatriot Games) directed tonight's pilot.

    Dermot Mulroney who plays the "bad dad" running the show is getting little credit, yet he is 3rd or 4th lead in the show. Way down on credits on IMDB (23rd?)and not even mentioned here.

    I'm also not understanding how this premise will last over several seasons unless the storyline described has a short arc. But I'm glad to see that SOMEone from the Tyler Perry Universe has graduated to the Big Show. Congrats to Lance!

    Note: HOMELAND is returning for a 3rd season even though the main 'hero' was killed in S2. At least we THINK he was. I think this is a 'shaky' premise also (either ya SAVE him or ya DON'T) but, time will tell. Also in the BlackFolksWorkin' file for now.

    I will be tuning in. Black lead on network primetime I'm in.

    "You're my problem and now I'm YOURS." With dialogue like THAT, how can it miss? Seems like a thin premise to base a seaon on. Putting this in the BlackFolksWorkin' and WaitAndSee files.

    So that's the premise of the whole show? I don't get it, sounds lame.
