We continue our weekend TV show preview with a look at the new NBC series, The Event!
Written by Meg M.
The Event is an emotional American conspiracy thriller starring Jason Ritter (The Class) and Scott Patterson, of Gilmore Girls fame. Ritter is Sean Walker, an ordinary young man who stumbles upon the biggest cover-up in U.S. history when his fiancée Leila disappears. Sean’s quest to uncover his Leila’s whereabouts will affect the lives of complete strangers, including U.S. President Martinez (portrayed by Blair Underwood), Sophia, the leader of a group of detainees, and Sean’s almost-father-in-law.
Don’t expect The Event to be like the recently defunct Flash Forward or dearly departed Lost. E Online’s Kristin, as well as the bosses behind The Event, assured critics and viewers that this new show will have an entirely different feel. Evan Katz, executive producer, claims that show will answer questions and satisfy audience. But don’t think that this means there won’t be any mystery. It appears that there will be many exciting layers to this story.
Tune in to the preview below, and tell us your opinion of this upcoming series in our comment section. Catch the series premiere of The Event on Monday, September 20 at 9 pm on NBC.
