First Look at ABC’s Missing Starring Ashley Judd

Ashley Judd as a former badass CIA lethal killer turned housewife? I’ll believe it when I see more than 90-seconds of it. It’s funny, because I don’t think we actually see any of Judd in this quick-cutting trailer, which is also full of generic (and badly staged) action scenes and sound effects. Having Judd sitting in a chair and narrating the cliched plot (“Her past comes back to haunt her!”) doesn’t exactly help sell this thing, either. Overall, I’ve seen worst TV trailers, but not by much.

How far would you go to save the only thing you have left in the world? After a tragic accident took Paul Winston’s life, his wife Becca (Ashley Judd) and their son Michael struggled to rebuild their lives. Now, ten years later, Michael goes missing under suspicious circumstances, and Becca will do anything it takes to find him.

Ever since Michael saw his father Paul blown up when he was just 8-years old, Becca has always been a tad overprotective. But she couldn’t say no to Michael’s amazing opportunity to study in Rome. Just a few weeks into his trip, however, Michael disappears. Becca flies to Rome for answers, but no one takes her seriously – so she takes matters into her own hands. You see, Becca isn’t just a mother looking for her son. Both she and Michael’s father used to be lethal CIA agents and whoever took Michael messed with the wrong mother. Now, if Becca wants to find her son alive, she will have to rely on old friends and reopen old wounds. Her resourcefulness, skill and determination will be put to the test – but a mother’s love knows no limits.

Starring Ashley Judd, Sean Bean, Cliff Curtis, Adriano Giannini, Nick Eversman, and Tereza Voriskova.
