DESCRIPTION: (from NBC's press release, May 2013) 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. 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"), "Crisis" is an emotionally charged action thriller. Writer Rand Ravich, Far Shariat ("Life," "I Love You Phillip Morris") and director Phillip Noyce ("Salt," "Patriot Games") serve as executive producers. "Crisis" is from 20th Century Fox Television.
