"Candy" -- Elena goes undercover as an exotic dancer in an attempt to find a stripper who disappeared from the same club, while Danny goes undercover as one of her customers, on the fifth season premiere of WITHOUT A TRACE, Sunday, Sept. 24 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Jonathan Kaplan, one of the series' co-executive producers, directed the episode written by Jan Nash and Greg Walker, two of the series' executive producers.
Academy Award nominee and Tony Award nominee Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio ("The Color of Money," "Man of La Mancha") returns as Jack's girlfriend and colleague, FBI agent Anne Cassidy, and Bill Smitrovich ("Life Goes On," "The Practice") returns as Jack's superior, Special Agent in-Charge Alexander Olczyk. Michelle Clunie ("Queer as Folk") guest stars as the missing stripper, and Golden Globe Award nominee Philip Casnoff ("Sinatra") guest stars as one of the club's customers.
The team tries to find Cindy Peterson, a missing wife and mother who recently took the job as a stripper to help pay the family's mounting debt. Since the club is the common link between Cindy and a recently murdered fellow dancer, Jack decides to assign Elena and Danny to go undercover to get some answers. Meanwhile, Jack and Anne deal with the professional and personal ramifications of her pregnancy.
WITHOUT A TRACE is a riveting drama about the New York Missing Persons Squad of the FBI. The sole responsibility of the special task force is to find missing persons, by applying advanced psychological profiling techniques to peel back the layers of the victims' lives and trace their whereabouts in an effort to discover whether they have been abducted, been murdered, committed suicide or simply run away. The team reconstructs a "day of disappearance" timeline that details every minute of the 24 hours prior to the disappearance and digs into every facet of the victim's life, following one simple rule: learn who the victim is in order to learn where the victim is. Senior agent Jack Malone (Anthony LaPaglia), a tough but compassionate, seasoned and astute professional, heads the dedicated team that knows too well that every second counts when someone vanishes. His squad includes Samantha Spade (Poppy Montgomery), an agent whose blonde good looks belie a tough, complex approach to her work; Vivian Johnson (Marianne Jean-Baptiste), a no-nonsense investigator with a special insight into victims' families; Danny Taylor (Enrique Murciano), whose sensitivity is often covered up by his street smarts; the driven Martin Fitzgerald (Eric Close), whose recent brush with prescription drug addiction revealed a darker side of his straight-laced persona; and the team's newest member, Elena Delgado (Roselyn Sanchez), a resourceful agent who previously worked in the N.Y.P.D.'s Vice unit. As the team members work on varied and complicated cases, details about their own lives continue to unfold.
WITHOUT A TRACE is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television, in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Productions. Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Hank Steinberg, Greg Walker and Jan Nash are executive producers.
