Plot Synopsis

When Dr. Ellen Sanders is selected to operate on U.S. President Paul Kincaid, her family is taken hostage, and she finds herself in the middle of a political conspiracy. Unfortunately for Ellen, she had no idea that her family made the perfect target. Her husband, Ivy League golden boy Brian, has a mistress, Samantha, and has fallen into debt and his real-estate career is in trouble, but he hasn't told his family. Their teenage daughter, Morgan, has her own secret, and Jake, their teenage son, is, at least on the surface, a good kid who simply lacks direction. Duncan Carlisle a rogue FBI agent, is at the center of the political conspiracy, and his relationship with his brother-in-law, Kramer, tests his loyalties. Carlisle and Kramer are joined by: quick-tempered and intimidating Archer, an ex-military man with a razor-sharp tongue; and the only woman involved, Sandrine, a mysterious last-minute replacement to the team. HOSTAGES debuted on Monday, September 23, 2013 at 10pm ET/PT on CBS.
