(from eOne's press release, June 2016) America's Most Watched Network CBS (US) has joined leading broadcasters TF1 (France) and Corus' Global (Canada) in greenlighting 13 episodes of the suspenseful drama series Ransom, starring Luke Roberts (Black Sails, Game of Thrones), from global studio Entertainment One (eOne), Big Light Productions and producers Sienna Films and Wildcats Productions. eOne controls worldwide rights to the series, excluding French-speaking territories. Through his company Big Light Productions, Golden Globe(R) winning and Emmy(R) nominated screenwriter Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files, The Man in the High Castle) will serve as an executive producer on the series. Created by David Vainola (Diamonds, Combat Hospital) and Spotnitz, Ransom is inspired by the professional experiences of distinguished crisis negotiator Laurent Combalbert. Laurent Combalbert and his partner, Marwan Mery, are considered to be among the top negotiators in the world. Today, they travel around the globe to help multinational corporations and governmental agencies with complex negotiations and conflict resolution. Ransom follows crisis and hostage negotiator Eric Beaumont (Roberts), whose team is brought in to save lives when no one else can. Eric understands criminals better than they do, and uses his insight into human behavior to resolve the most difficult kidnap and ransom cases. Despite the stakes, Eric refuses to resort to violence, even when confronted by some of the most dangerous criminals in the world. While Eric's considerable powers of manipulation make him the best at what he does professionally, they often complicate his relationships with family, friends and colleagues. Is Eric being himself, or who he needs to be in order to get what he wants? The difference is often hard to tell. The series begins with Eric taking on Maxine Carlson, a new member of the team eager to prove herself. But a dangerous secret from Maxine's past may pose a threat that even the great Eric Beaumont is unable to resolve.
