Crisis is about the abduction of a school bus fully loaded with children, including the President of the United State’s son, while on a field trip. The children are taken to a rather large and beautiful building where they are held captive. The kidnappers make demands of the parents that include murder, extortion, resetting of satellites and much more. The theme is “what will you do for your children”. One newly trained Secret Service Agent, played by Lance Gross, was able to rescue one student and kill one of the captors. Dermot Mulroney plays the master mind behind the whole plan and is also the father of one of the abducted students.
This series has the potential to bomb because the concept is absolutely ridiculous. It’s saving grace is it’s so exciting and well acted that it may forge on to stardom. There’s lots of drama and twist and turns amid the parents and the students. One of the CIA agents working on the case is the mother of one of the students, only the student doesn’t know the women she calls mom is really her aunt. This is so new, I can’t say much. Watch it for yourself — it’s not bad! This series currently airs on NBC.
