The conspiracy drama from Rand Ravich stars "X-Files" veteran Gillian Anderson as the CEO of a conglomerate whose daughter is abducted along with her classmates. Rachael Taylor, who recently appeared in "666 Park Avenue" on ABC, plays Anderson's estranged sister, an FBI agent. NBC's "Crisis" also stars Dermot Mulroney, James Lafferty, Max Martini, Stevie Lynn Jones and Halston Sage.
Here's the logline for NBC's "Crisis" via The Hollywood Reporter: "When Washington's most powerful players are pulled into an international conspiracy, an unlikely puppeteer will bring everyone from CEOs to The President of the United States to their knees by threatening the things they hold most dear."
In addition to "Crisis," NBC also ordered Jason Katims's adaptation of "About A Boy," J.J. Abrams's "Believe," "Family Guide" starring Parker Posey and the Sean Hayes/Victor Fresco comedy.
