Toni Collete’s new is coming to Nine and will be paired with CSI in a new Wednesday Line Up from October 2
The double dose of drama starts at 8.30pm with Hostages, the gripping new thriller from Jerry Bruckheimer, a suspense-riddled series about a family caught in the middle of a grand political conspiracy that will change their lives forever.
Ellen Sanders (Collette), a top surgeon in Washington DC, has been tapped to operate on the President of the United States … and then kill him.
The night before the operation masked men, led by righteous FBI agent Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott), break into the Sanders home and take Ellen, her husband (Tate Donovan) and two children hostage. They threaten to harm them all unless Ellen does as they ask – and her husband, hiding secrets of his own, is not much help.
As tensions mount and Ellen fights for time before suiting up for surgery it becomes clear that the outwardly idyllic Sanders family isn’t as perfect as originally thought. Nor are their captors as evil as one might suspect.
Then at 9.30pm CSI: Crime Scene Investigation- the most watched drama series in the world, and the program that redefined the crime genre – returns for its 14th season.
Set in the gritty, neon-splashed streets of Las Vegas,CSI: Crime Scene Investigation follows an elite team of forensic investigators as they solve the city’s murders and seek justice for the victims.
In the series return, D.B. Russell (Ted Danson) leads the CSI team on a hunt to find their colleague Morgan Brody (Elisabeth Harnois) and Ellie Brass (Brittany Redmann) – step-daughter of Detective Jim Brass (Paul Guilfoyle) – who have been kidnapped by a ritualistic killer.
