After Monday night’s premiere of “The Voice” (Blind Auditions, 2-hour Premiere, Night 1) NBC will debut “Taken.” at 10PM ET/PT.
This new series is a prequel to the Taken action films starring Liam Neeson. After thwarting a terrorist attack on a train, young Bryan Mills (Clive Standen) is recruited by the CIA.
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.
The cast includes Jennifer Beals, Gaius Charles, Brooklyn Sudano, Monique Gabriela Curnen, Michael Irby, James Landry Hébert and Jose Pablo Cantillo.
Alexander Cary serves as writer and executive producer. Luc Besson, Matthew Gross, Edouard de Vésinne, Thomas Anargyros and director Alex Graves also executive produce.
