'Hostages' Premiere Preview: How Far Would You Go To Protect Your Family? (VIDEO)

The premiere of CBS' "Hostages" is just around the corner (Monday, Sept. 23 at 10 p.m. ET), and the network has released a gripping new preview that will challenge every viewer to consider how far they'd go to protect their family.

Toni Collette stars as Dr. Ellen Sanders, a premiere surgeon thrust into a chilling political conspiracy when her family is taken hostage by rogue FBI Agent Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott), who orders her to assassinate the President when she operates on him. With her family’s life in peril, Ellen faces an incomprehensible moral dilemma in order to save her overbearing husband Brian (Tate Donovan), her secretive daughter Morgan (Quinn Shephard) and her not-so-innocent son Jake (Mateus Ward).

"Hostages" was named one of the best new dramas of the 2013-2014 season by critics -- do you plan to tune in?
