Kidnapped

Saturdays from 22 November
8.30pm on ARTS CHANNEL

1751. Fifteen-year-old Davie Balfour is left orphaned and penniless when his father is crushed by a tree during a violent storm. Just before he dies, Davie’s father gives him a dagger and, hinting at dark family secrets, tells him that the only way to avoid starvation is to claim his rightful inheritance from an unknown uncle. On his subsequent quest for justice, through perilous encounters with both friend and foe, Davie gradually learns that the world is complicated place, heroes are not always what they seem and that the difference between right and wrong is far from black and white. Created by a first class cast and production team, this beautiful and exciting adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic book is an epic adventure story, a road movie, a buddy movie – but most of all the story of one boy’s coming of age and survival amidst the great dangers of modern Scotland’s turbulent birth.

KIDNAPPED

DRAMA

Kidnapped is a high-stakes serialised thriller in which the teenage son of a wealthy Upper East Side family is kidnapped and everyone is a suspect. 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.

Tonight: My Heart Belongs To Daddy. Now that the effort to free Leo has killed the conspiracy’s lone suspect and blown up tens of millions of dollars, it’s clear that the kidnappers aren’t interested in money. In the wake of the aborted ransom attempt, a news story by Maureen Campbell – the reporter who met Ellie at a parents support group – creates a media firestorm that engulfs the Cain family. And as Knapp presses Conrad to explain why he hired a bodyguard for Leo, King’s life is upended by the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility Agent Vance and his questions about millions of dollars alleged to be missing from a previous drug bust. Knapp suspects that Leo’s kept a secret diary that may be the key to cracking the case.

Apparently Sony Pictures Television wants new show Kidnapped’s storyline to be concluded after 13 episodes – rather than waiting to see if the second half of the season will be requested. Production won’t start on the second half until Sony has made a decision about the show.

Brand new show which has just started in the US.
