DESCRIPTION:
(from NBC's press release, November 2016) NBC has set its midseason Monday strategy in motion with the extension of #1-rated Monday drama "Timeless," bringing the full-season order to 16; plus the premiere of its highly anticipated new action series "Taken," which will launch Monday, Feb. 27 at 10 p.m. The series, starring international superstar Clive Standen, immediately follows the debut of the spring cycle of the three-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series "The Voice." From executive producer Luc Besson ("Taken," "The Fifth Element") comes a modern-day edge-of-your-seat thriller that follows the origin story of younger, hungrier former Green Beret Bryan Mills (Clive Standen, "Vikings") as he deals with a personal tragedy that shakes his world. As he fights to overcome the trauma of the incident and exact revenge, Mills is pulled into a career as a deadly CIA operative, a job that awakens his very particular, and very dangerous, set of skills. In 30 years, this character is destined to become the Bryan Mills that we've come to love from the "Taken" films.
