Back in February, we reported that Temptation  actor Lance Gross was starring as the lead in a new thriller for NBC entitled Crisis.  Well now, the network has released the first trailer and so far the political action drama looks like it’s going to be worth watching.

According to Indie Wire, Crisis  follows Gross as Marcus Finley, an idealistic Security Service agent who finds himself at the center of an international crisis on his first day on the job as the President’s son protection, when the son, along with several of his schoolmates, are kidnapped. The series also stars Dermot Mulroney, Gillian Anderson and Michael Beach as the FBI Director who’s managing the crisis.

As previously reported, this is Gross first time as a lead for a television series. He is best known for his role as Calvin Payne on Tyler Perry’s House of Payne.  He recently starred in the indie drama The Last Fall  which opened to rave reviews last October.
