Lance Gross is officially coming to a small screen near you.

NBC recently announced that the network has picked up the presidential thriller Crisis which packs the House of Payne, Michael Beach, Rachael Taylor and James Lafferty in one cast. Gross plays Marcus Finley, a Secret Service agent who’s thrown for a whirlwind his first day on the job after the Prez’s son is kidnapped.

According to NBC:

It’s field trip day for the students of Ballard High School, a place that educates the children of Washington, D.C.’s elite, top-of-their-industry CEOs, international diplomats, political power players and even the president’s son. But when their bus is ambushed on a secluded rural road, the teenagers and their chaperones are taken, igniting a national crisis. Now with some of the country’s most powerful parents at the mercy of one vengeful mastermind, the question arises: How far would you go and what would you become to ensure your child’s safe return? With so many parents and dignitaries put into play with nowhere to turn and no one to trust, this unthinkable scenario grows from the select families at risk to an entire nation at stake.

The show is written/ executive produced by Rand Ravich with a tentative time slot of Sundays at 10pm. No word on premiere date as of yet.
