After a very long wait, Christopher McQuarrie’s TV series “Persons Unknown” has finally gotten a premiere date from NBC. The “Prisoner”-ish mystery-thriller will be making its debut on the peacock network on Monday, June 7, at 9:00 PM central time, so mark your calendars, kids.
The show stars the funny Alan Ruck, Jason Wiles of “Third Watch” fame, and Daisy Betts (“Sea Patrol”), and follows a group of strangers who must work together to solve a puzzle after they wake up inside a small ghost town with no idea of how they got there. They also discover that they are being watched by surveillance cameras, and that any attempts to escape is not recommended.
Also starring Chadwick Boseman, Tina Holmes, Alan Smyth, Lee Purcell, and Reggie Lee. “Persons Unknown” is brought to you by Christopher McQuarrie (“Way of the Gun”, “The Usual Suspects”).
Added: I guess I haven’t been paying close enough attention, because the show’s official site has already released a trailer. There’s also a second promo trailer on YouTube. Also, Daisy Betts is the show’s female lead. (Thanks to Tariq in the comments section for hipping us to these facts.)
Check out both promo videos below.
