Crisis is an American mystery thriller television drama series created by Rand Ravich which follows events which begin during a school trip in which students of the 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 crisis begins and Secret Service agent Marcus Finley finds himself at the centre of it on his first day on the job; and FBI agent Susie Dunn also discovers her niece, the daughter of CEO Meg Fitch, is among the kidnapped children.

To bring the most powerful people in the world to their knees... threaten what they hold most dear.

It's field trip day for the students of Ballard High, a school that educates the children of Washington, D.C.'s elite, top-of-their-industry CEOs, international diplomats, political power players, even the President's son. But when their bus is ambushed on a secluded rural road, the teenagers and their chaperones are taken, igniting a national crisis.

Now, with some of the country's most powerful parents at the mercy of one vengeful mastermind, the question arises: How far would you go and what would you become to ensure your child's safe return?

With so many parents and dignitaries put into play with nowhere to turn and no one to trust, the unthinkable grows from the select families at risk to an entire nation at stake.

Crisis stars Gillian Anderson (The X-Files), Dermot Mulroney (August: Osage County), Lance Gross (House of Payne), Rachael Taylor (666 Park Avenue), James Lafferty (One Tree Hill), Max Martini (Pacific Rim), Halston Sage (Neighbors), Stevie Lynn Jones (Runaways), Max Schneider (How to Rock), Michael Beach (Insidious: Chapter 2) and Joshua Erenberg (Suburgatory).

The series was created by executive producer and writer Rand Ravich (Life). Far Shariat (I Love You Phillip Morris, Life) and Phillip Noyce (The Giver, Salt) also serve as executive producers. Noyce also directed the pilot.

Crisis is a production of 20th Century Fox Television.
