Season 1

When a businesswoman (Fielding) is kidnapped in South Africa, expert hostage negotiator Dominic King (Eve) believes he's dealing with a straightforward case – pay the money, get her back.

But when the release is botched and they strike again in Britain, the kidnapper, Willard's (Hannah) motives become far more sinister.

With trouble brewing at home with his wife Sophie (Little) and teenage daughter - and his team, boss Angela (Baxendale) and ambitious assistant Carrie (Karan) pushed to the limit, King must draw on all his reserves to bring the victims home alive.

Kidnap and Ransom is a talkbackTHAMES/Projector Pictures co-production for ITV1. Executive Producers are Trevor Eve, Jonathan Young and Rachel Gesua. The producer is Trevor Hopkins and the Director is Andy Wilson.
