NBC has released the official key art and promotional pilot episode photos for its new midseason action-thriller, Crisis. The series has been scheduled to air every Sundays at 10pm. Premiere date TBA.
From writer/producer Rand Ravich (“Life,” “The Astronaut’s Wife”) and starring Dermot Mulroney (“The Grey,” “My Best Friend’s Wedding”), Gillian Anderson (“The X-Files,” “Hannibal”), Lance Gross (“Tyler Perry’s House of Pain,” “The Last Fall”) and Rachael Taylor (“Transformers,” “Red Dog”) comes an emotionally charged, action thriller. 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. Also starring are Stevie Lynn Jones (“Battle Force,” “Rogue”), Halston Sage (“The First Time,” “How to Rock”), Joshua Erenberg (“The Incredible Burt Wonderstone,” “The Green Hornet”), Max Schneider (“How to Rock,” “Rags”), James Lafferty (“One Tree Hill,” “S. Darko”), Max Martini (“Saving Private Ryan,” “The Unit”) and Michael Beach (“The Game,” “Third Watch”).
