Plot Synopsis

As a prequel to the TAKEN films, this one-hour series is a modern-day edge-of-your-seat thriller that follows the origin story of younger, hungrier former Green Beret Bryan Mills as he deals with a personal tragedy that shakes his world. As he fights to overcome the trauma of the incident and exact revenge, Mills is pulled into a career as a deadly CIA operative, a job that awakens his very particular -- and very dangerous -- set of skills. In 30 years, this character is destined to become the Bryan Mills from the films. The series opens with the murder of Bryan's sister, which launches him into a dangerous mission for revenge against cartel boss Carlos Mejia. A secret US intelligence agency, led by Christina Hart, covertly uses Bryan as bait to capture Mejia, and in the end recruits Bryan to become a part of their team. Then, Bryan gets his first chance in the field but the mission goes bust, resulting in a tragic death. The team uncovers a group of government officials skimming off of refugee funds, which also leads Christina to reconnect with a long lost love. Meanwhile, Asha shows up unexpectedly at Bryan's doorstep.
