About the Show

Kidnapped is an American thriller television series created by Jason Smilovic which unfolds the events surrounding the kidnapping of the teenage son of a wealthy Upper East Side family, focusing on the elaborate, triangulated game between the kidnappers, FBI and law enforcement, and the private negotiating team contracted by this perhaps not-so-picture-perfect family.

The series focuses on the elaborate, triangulated game between the kidnappers, FBI and law enforcement, and the private negotiating team contracted by this perhaps not-so-picture-perfect family.

On a rainy New York morning, the idyllic existence of Conrad Cain (Timothy Hutton), a self-made millionaire with a long list of enemies, and his well-to-do wife Ellie (Dana Delany) is torn apart when their 15-year-old son Leopold (Will Denton), a smart but quirky kid whose innocence makes him the perfect target, is kidnapped on his way to school.

The boy's bodyguard Virgil (Mykelti Williamson), the boy's first line of defence even after the kidnapping, is left to die.

Desperate to find his son while keeping his skeletons hidden, Cain enlists the services of Knapp (Jeremy Sisto), a professional investigator who works outside the law's strict rulebook to retrieve kidnapping victims and guide families through the grueling process, and Turner (Carmen Ejogo), his able partner and right hand.

Operating opposite Knapp and his team are Special Agent Latimer King (Delroy Lindo), an experienced FBI agent who postpones his retirement due to a vested interest in this complicated case, as well as King's colleague and antithesis, Agent Andy Archer (Linus Roache), who only knows how to play by the rules.

Kidnapped is produced by Sony Pictures Television and 25C Productions. Jason Smilovic (Karen Sisco), David Greenwalt (Angel), Michael Dinner (Invasion), Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly are executive producers.
