Yesterday, NBC, an American TV network, revealed its 2010 primetime fall schedule. As indicated in the press release, North Americans should expect to see new original series. Indeed, The Event, a show created by Nick Wauters (The 4400, Eureka) and Steve Stark (Medium), seems to try to appeal to fans of thrillers about conspiracies.
In this one-hour drama, Sean Walker (Jason Ritter), an Everyman, investigates the mysterious disappearance of his fiancée, Leila (Sarah Roemer). However, as he advances in his investigation, Sean unwittingly begins to expose the biggest cover-up in U.S. history. Sean's quest will send ripples through the lives of an eclectic band of strangers, including: newly elected U.S. President Martinez (Blair Underwood); Sophia (Laura Innes), who is the leader of a mysterious group of detainees; and Sean's shadowy father-in-law (Scott Patterson). Their futures are on a collision course in a global conspiracy that could ultimately change the fate of mankind.
Moreover, the show also star Ian Anthony Dale and Zeljko Ivanek.
Finally, the one-hour thriller will premiere this fall.
