Watch Lance Gross & Michael Beach In Action In 1st Trailer For NBC's Political Thriller 'Crisis'

Titled CrisisNBC has set Sunday nights at 10pm to broadcast the Lance Gross thriller from writer/executive producer Rand Ravich.

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 the pilot.

Here’s the first trailer:

This looks good, actually.


not interested


The synopsis of this show lends to a limited run. It's short of like the show "John Doe" that aired on Fox and "The Fugitive", this story seems to have a very finite point.

Side note: I like Gillian Anderson's hair better red, even though the word on the street is that blonde is her natural color.


reminds me of person of interest


I would love to see Lance & Channing Tatum star in a movie together, how about Magic Mike 2!!! Damn!! Be still my beating heart.


I want to give Gross a chance, he seems like a pretty nice guy, but that one movie where he played the football player, Ms. Beharie acted circles around him. He needs to step his game up with his acting.

But it's good to see so many new shows with black actors as leads, so I'll definitely watch to see if it holds my interest.

I can see this as a mini series, but can't envision how they'll carry this year to year.


I've seen all previews of new shows on all networks (drama & comedy) and this is the ONLY show I want to give a chance. Not a fan of Lance's, but I'm willing to watch the pilot.


No Lance Gross is hot so I don't care what he sounds like. I am sure the audience isn't going to care either. Lance is eye candy.


Lance's voice is so girly/young-sounding. This is what you call a casting fail.
