Hostages Sea­son 1 Wed­nes­days (from 14 June) e.tv (*194) 20:30

Think that op­er­at­ing on the most pow­er­ful man in the world is stress­ful? It gets worse in sin­gle-sea­son drama Hostages (2013-2014): if Dr Ellen San­ders ( Toni Col­lette) doesn’t fol­low her or­ders, her fam­ily dies. And she can’t go to the FBI and re­port it – one of their top agents is pulling the strings! “I’m do­ing bad things for a good rea­son,” says Dylan McDer­mott, who plays FBI Spe­cial Agent and hostage leader Dun­can Carlisle. “He’s not good. He’s try­ing to kill the Pres­i­dent he swore to pro­tect. For love.”

WHO’RE THE HOSTAGES?

Brian San­ders (Tate Dono­van, Mark in ac­tion series 24: Live An­other Day, 2014) runs a top es­tate agency and is cheat­ing on Ellen with his PA. Re­bel­lious teen Mor­gan (Quinn Shep­hard, Claire in ac­tion show Per­son Of In­ter­est, 2011-2016) is ly­ing to her par­ents about a lot of things. And Jake (Ma­teus Ward, Dustin in cop ac­tion show Mur­der In The First, 20142016) is a trou­ble mag­net – in episode 1 he’s grounded af­ter his “fake ID and booze” cash is found.

THE HIRED GUNS

Archer (Billy Brown, De­tec­tive Nate La­hey in drama series How To Get Away With Mur­der, 2014- cur­rent) owes his life to his res­cuer Dun­can.

San­drine (San­drine Holt, Pa­tri­cia Thorn­ton in ac­tion show MacGyver, 2016- cur­rent) is Archer’s Marine pal who can’t be trusted by any­one. And Kramer (Rhys Coiro) is Dun­can’s brother-in-law who’s try­ing to sav­ing his leukaemia-stricken sis­ter.

THE MAIN MAN

Pres­i­dent Kin­caid (James Naughton, Wil­liam van der Bilt in drama Gos­sip Girl, 2007-2014) isn’t just hid­ing a scan­dalous na­tional secret, he’s also a donor match for Dun­can’s wife

There’s lies, drama and death around Agent Carlisle (left) and Dr San­ders (right).
