Synopsis

From Academy Award-winning writer Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) and executive producers Heather McQuarrie and RĂ©mi Aubuchon comes Persons Unknown, a one-hour mystery drama in which a group of seven strangers must come together to solve the puzzle of their lives.

All of them have been taken from their everyday lives and have arrived in a deserted town with no recollection of how they got there.

The eclectic group of strangers are Charlie Morse (Alan Ruck); Janet Cooper (Daisy Betts); Joe Tucker (Jason Wiles); Bill Blackham (Sean O'Bryan); Moira Doherty (Tina Holmes); Sergeant Graham McNair (Chadwick Boseman); Tori Fairchild (Kate Lang Johnson); Erika Taylor (Kandyse McClure); Mark Renbe (Gerald Kyd); and Kat Damatto (Lola Glaudini).

While being held hostage, the strangers are constantly watched by omnipresent security cameras with no idea who or what is behind them. Every attempt to leave is thwarted by unforeseen circumstances, which seem to derive from mysterious forces.

At every turn, these strangers-turned-comrades are threatened physically, psychologically and emotionally.

Their chance at survival is to rely on each other. But who can they trust in this vulnerable state - either behind those cameras or amongst themselves?

Their decisions will have moral and ethical consequences, as alliances are forged and relationships brokered.
