In the season premiere, “The New Deal,” con man Benjamin Jones has gone from committing the ultimate betrayal to performing the ultimate sacrifice, when he turned himself in to the FBI to save Alice from wrongful imprisonment. Now in jail, Ben is forced to reckon with his criminal past, while the team at Anderson Vaughan Investigations must come to terms with getting in bed with the bad guys. How will Alice and Ben game the system — and each other — to stay together and overcome their less-than-legal pasts? The highly anticipated season two premiere of “The Catch” airs THURSDAY, MARCH 9 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT), on the ABC Television Network.
“The Catch” stars Mireille Enos as Alice Vaughan, Peter Krause as Benjamin Jones, Sonya Walger as Margot Bishop, John Simm as Rhys Griffiths, Jay Hayden as Danny Yoon, Rose Rollins as Valerie Anderson and Elvy Yost as Sophie Novak. T.R. Knight as Tommy Vaughan, Gina Torres as Justine Diaz, Lesley Nicol as Sybil Griffiths, Jackie Seiden as Gainda Mangels, Jake Green as Seth Hamilton, and Jacky Ido as Agent Jules Dao guest-star.
During the initial season we were introduced to Alice Vaughan, LA’s top private investigator and the one woman you don’t want to mess with. But when her fiancé, Benjamin Jones, cons her out of millions and disappears, Alice goes on a private mission for payback. No matter where it leads or the secrets she must keep along the way, Alice will stop at nothing to catch her man.
Anderson/Vaughan Investigations is one of the leading private investigation and security firms in the country and was built from the ground up by Alice and her best friend and business partner, Valerie Anderson. Their elite team of private investigators includes associates Danny Yoon, whose mischievous and irreverent nature allows them to break the law when necessary to solve a case, and their newest member, Sophie Novak, who serves as their in-house counsel and brilliant hacker. While their firm continues to investigate some of the most elaborate crimes around the world, Alice is on a personal mission to beat her former fiancé at his own game.
However, she is not the only one chasing Ben. FBI Agent Jules Dao (Jacky Ido) has been following his criminal activity across Europe and now is closer than ever to capturing him. Agent Dao hopes to elicit Alice’s help in taking Ben and his team down. Meanwhile, the elusive Ben has slipped back into the dangerous and sexy world of international crime. Alongside his long-time partners, mastermind Margot Bishop (Sonya Walker) and Reggie Lennox (Alimi Ballard), they stealthily move from con to con, targeting only high-end jobs with multi-million dollar payouts. With stakes this high, you can’t make one misstep; but Ben does exactly that when this world-class conman gets too close to his mark, Alice. Undeniably drawn to one another, both Alice and Ben are playing with fire, and as Alice continues to hunt him down, it quickly becomes an intoxicating game of cat and mouse.
