WGN America has set a February 27, 2019 premiere date for the crime drama, Gone. The series also just debuted its first official trailer in which Danny Pino’s character describes the show’s premise. “36 hours after a victim is taken their chances of being found alive is less than 10%,” says Pino, recently seen as the head of a drug cartel in FX’s Mayans M.C.. The trailer furthers the “gone” theme by explaining that at any given moment 83,957 people are missing in the United States.
The new WGN America series is adapted from Chelsea Cain’s novel, One Kick.
In addition to Danny Pino, the cast of the 12 part limited series includes two-time Golden Globe nominee Chris Noth (Sex and the City, Law & Order), Leven Rambin (The Path, True Detective), Tracie Thomas (UnREAL, The Devil Wears Prada), and Any Mientus (The Flash, Anger Management).
The series was created by Matt Lopez (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice). Lopez also writes and executive produces. NBCUniversal International Studios’ Executive Vice President of Scripted Programming JoAnn Alfano (Resurrection, 30 Rock), Sara Colleton (Dexter), Kim Moses (Reckless), and Barry O’Brien (CSI: Miami) served as executive producers. Gone was produced by NBCUniversal International Studios.
The limited series will air on Wednesdays at 9pm ET/PT.
The series follows the story of Kit “Kick” Lannigan (Rambin), survivor of a famous child-abduction case, and Frank Novak (Noth), the FBI agent who rescued her. Years later, Novak recruits Lanigan to join a special task force dedicated to solving abductions and missing person’s cases. Paired with former Army intelligence officer John Bishop (Pino), Lanigan uses her intuitive wit and martial arts skills to solve cases and bring victims home.
