TOP CRISIS AND HOSTAGE NEGOTIATOR ERIC BEAUMONT USES HIS INSIGHT INTO HUMAN BEHAVIOR TO RESOLVE THE MOST DIFFICULT KIDNAP AND RANSOM CASES, AND SAVE LIVES, ON THE SERIES PREMIERE OF “RANSOM,” SUNDAY, JAN. 1

Luke Roberts, Sarah Green, Brandon Jay McLaren and Nazneen Contractor Star in the New Drama Inspired by the Real-Life Professional Experiences of World-Renowned Crisis Negotiator Laurent Combalbert and His Partner, Marwan Mery

“The Return” – Top crisis and hostage negotiator Eric Beaumont uses his insight into human behavior to resolve the most difficult kidnap and ransom cases, and save lives, on the series premiere of RANSOM, Sunday, Jan. 1 (8:30-9:30 PM, ET/8:00-9:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network. Luke Roberts, Sarah Green, Brandon Jay McLaren and Nazneen Contractor star in the new drama inspired by the real-life professional experiences of world-renowned crisis negotiator Laurent Combalbert and his partner, Marwan Mery.

Eric Beaumont’s team is brought in to save lives when no one else can. He understands criminals better than they do and uses his insight into human behavior to resolve the most difficult kidnap and ransom cases. Despite the stakes, he refuses to resort to violence, even when confronted by some of the most dangerous criminals in the world. While Beaumont’s considerable powers of manipulation make him the best at what he does professionally, they often complicate his relationships with family, friends and colleagues. His team consists of psych-profiler Oliver Yates, ex-cop Zara Hallam and aspiring investigator Maxine Carlson. Maxine, the newest member, is eager to prove herself, but a dangerous secret from her past may pose a threat that even the great Eric Beaumont is unable to resolve.

 

 

Has anyone seen this? There seem to be some similarities to Millennium. (Even that it's inspired by real life people, just as S1 MM Group were.)

I haven't watched any of them, but yes, it appears there's one more show ripping MLM off of it's story line.  Just proves how good the show was, and still is.

too long for  those who grieve; too short for those who rejoice.

But for those who love, time is eternity."
