First Look: Lance Gross Stars As Agent Marcus Finley In The New NBC Political Thriller Series Crisis
He might have been passed up for the role of Harrison (Columbus Short) on Scandal, but Lance Gross is ready to get his Olivia Pope-style fixing on in Crisis.
The 32-year-old actor has been tapped to star in the new NBC political thriller as Marcus Finley, a by-the-book Secret Service agent ordered to protect the President’s son. Unfortunately for Finley, things couldn’t go worse on his first day when the president’s son gets kidnapped.
According to the official synopsis, “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.”
Crisis also stars Dermot Mulroney, The X-Files’ Gillian Anderson, Rachael Taylor, Stevie Lynn Jones, Halston Sage, Joshua Erenberg, Max Schneider, James Lafferty, and Max Martini. Check out the first trailer for the show below. Will you tune in when the show premieres on March 16?
