Plot Synopsis

Inspired by the real-life professional experiences of world-renowned crisis negotiator Laurent Combalbert and his partner Marwan Mery, RANSOM is a one-hour drama series that follows Eric Beaumont and his team, who are brought in to save lives when no one else can. Eric understands criminals better than they do and he uses his insight into human behavior to resolve the most difficult kidnap and ransom cases. Despite the stakes, he 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. His team consists of psych-profiler Oliver Yates, ex-cop Zara Hallam, and aspiring investigator Maxine Carlson. Maxine, the newest member, is eager to prove herself but a dangerous secret from her past may pose a threat that even the great Eric Beaumont is unable to resolve. RANSOM premiered on Sunday, January 1, 2017 at 8:30pm ET/8pm PT, moving to its regular timeslot -- Saturdays at 8pm -- the following week on January 7. Season 2 of RANSOM premiered on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at 8pm ET/PT on CBS. The season opener, "Three Wishes," was written by executive producer and co-creator Frank Spotnitz. When Eric's daughter is kidnapped, he must fulfill three ransom demands from his long-time adversary, Damien Delaine, which include answering a series of emotionally challenging questions and performing ethically questionable tasks, in order to save what matters to him most: his daughter's life.
