3 Unmissable TV Series on Kidnapping

Thrillers are one of the most successful TV genres. The depth of the characters that this type of productions can offer is one of the reasons that many viewers are drawn every year to watch these unforgettable productions. Celebrating the airing of Full Disclosure, an Italian TV drama about kidnapping and revenge, we have selected three TV series on the subject that nobody should miss.

The Missing

One of the most riveting series produced in the UK in recent years, The Missing is an anthology drama created for the BBC. The first eight-part series focuses on the search for a missing boy in France and starred Tchéky Karyo as Julien Baptiste, the French detective who leads the case, with James Nesbitt and Frances O'Connor as the boy's parents.

The second series is about a missing girl in Germany. In 2014, police tell Sam and Gemma Webster, whose daughter Alice went missing in 2003, that Alice has reappeared. Alice claims she had been held captive with Sophie Giroux, a French girl who disappeared about the same time. Retired French detective Julien Baptiste, who was in charge of the Giroux investigation, cannot resist becoming involved again and travels to Germany and Iraq to find answers.

Safe

Set in England and starring Michael C. Hall, Safe tells the story of Englishman Tom Delaney, a pediatric surgeon and widowed father of two teenage daughters struggling to connect to his daughters as they still grieve the loss of his wife from cancer one year prior. After his 16-year-old daughter Jenny goes missing, Tom ultimately uncovers a web of secrets as he frantically searches for her.

The series began filming in Manchester, Liverpool and Cheshire in July 2017. It consists of eight episodes that premiered in 190 countries on May 2018.

Crisis

What can be a worst scenario than the son of the United States president being kidnapped? That is the problem faced by Secret Service Special Agent Marcus Finley. The series follows the story of a national crisis in America. During a school trip, students of Ballard High School, attended by the children of Washington, D.C.'s elite, including the President's son, are the victims of an ambush. A national emergency ensues and Secret Service agent Marcus Finley finds himself at the center of it on his first day on the job.
