Missing Preview: ABC's Action Drama Starring Ashley Judd Premiere Tonight
Joining ABC’s line-up tonight is Missing, a drama series that looks like the film Taken, with Ashley Judd playing the role of the ex-CIA agent who stop at nothing to get her kid back. The clips we have to show you from tonight’s premiere give us a look at the Judd’s character, and the relationship she has with her son Michael.
Created by Gregory Poirier, Missing has Judd playing Becca Winstone, a former CIA agent whose son disappears while he’s studying abroad, causing her to set off to Europe to track him down. ABC’s description promises exotic locations and thrilling twists. There’s also a back-story involving Michael witnessing his father’s murder. Here’s ABC’s synopsis for the drama...
How far would you go to save the only thing you have left in the world? At 8 years of age, Michael Winstone watched as his father, CIA agent Paul Winstone, was murdered. Now 10 years later, Paul's wife, Becca, is faced with the reality that her son is growing up. When Michael is afforded the opportunity to study abroad, his mother reluctantly agrees it's time to let him go. But just a few weeks into his trip, Michael disappears, and Becca immediately suspects foul play. When she arrives in Rome, she begins piecing together the clues left behind. It isn't long before the kidnappers realize they've picked a fight with the wrong woman, because Becca has a secret of her own -- before Paul's death, she was also a lethal CIA operative. If she wants to find her son alive, Becca will have to rely on old friends and reopen old wounds. All of her resourcefulness, skill and determination will be put to the test -- but a mother's love knows no limits.
The clips below do a nice job of showing us two things. The first is that Becca and her son Michael are close (and they speak in code sometimes, which could come in handy). The second video shows us what appears to be the reaction of Winstone’s pursuit by the CIA. While she’s searching for her son, they may be searching for her...
Missing premieres Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 8:00 p.m., ET on ABC.
