“Ransom”
Season Premiere Saturday, April 7 at 8 PM ET/PT on CBS

         RANSOM follows crisis and hostage negotiator Eric Beaumont and his team as they save lives when no one else can. Eric understands criminals better than they do, and uses his insight into human behavior to resolve the most difficult kidnap and ransom cases. Despite the stakes, Eric refuses to resort to violence, even when confronted by some of the most dangerous criminals in the world. While Eric’s considerable powers of manipulation make him the best at what he does professionally, they often complicate his relationships with family, friends and colleagues. His team consists of psych-profiler, Oliver Yates, ex-cop Zara Hallam and investigator Maxine Carlson.

         In the season premiere episode, “Three Wishes,” when Eric’s daughter is kidnapped, he must fulfill three ransom demands from his long-time adversary, Damien Delaine (Carlo Rota), which include answering a series of emotionally challenging questions and performing ethically questionable tasks, in order to save what matters to him most – his daughter’s life. RANSOM stars Luke Roberts as expert hostage negotiator Eric Beaumont, whose team is brought in to save lives when no one else can. Sarah Greene, Brandon Jay McLaren and Nazneen Contractor also star. The series is inspired by the professional experiences of distinguished crisis negotiator Laurent Combalbert, who, along with his partner, Marwan Mery, are among the top negotiators in the world. This season’s episodes were filmed in Hungary and Toronto.
