“Captive”
Premieres Friday, December 9 on Netflix
 
         This documentary series reconstructs history's most complex, high-stakes hostage negotiations as kidnapping victims recount their terrifying ordeals.

          From the highest profile cases to those kept hidden from the public, comes a new docu-series from acclaimed executive producer Doug Liman (“Bourne Identity”) and producers Simon and Jonathan Chinn. The producers of Captive have gained privileged access to the most challenging negotiations of our time -- revealing how hostage-taking, and the efforts to resolve it, have evolved to address an escalating international trend.

 

          The episodes look at a wide range of situations from the viewpoint of everyone involved: the victims and their families back home, the experienced negotiators, business leaders, government officials and the kidnappers themselves.
