"Riveting drama"-The Sunday Mail (U.K.)
"Intriguing…very watchable" -The Sunday Times (U.K.)
This taut series from creator Patrick Harbinson (24, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) revolves around master negotiator Dominic King. From the first phone call with kidnappers to risky excursions into exotic and dangerous locales, King places himself in the line of fire to bring the victims home.
Played with steely restraint by veteran actor Trevor Eve (Waking the Dead), King has a brash negotiating style that lands him in hot water with publicity-minded police and politicians. His unconventional tactics also draw ire from the British Foreign Office, as well as his wife, Sophie (Natasha Little, Case Histories), and business partner, Angela (Helen Baxendale, An Unsuitable Job for a Woman).
Filmed on location, Kidnap and Ransom examines the alarming rise of international kidnapping with gripping realism. This set includes Complete Series 1 and 2 of the acclaimed thriller, with guest stars including John Hannah (The Mummy), Patrick Baladi (The Office, U.K.), and Sharon Small (The Inspector Lynley Mysteries).
