Hostage situations are always tense and dangerous. Some end favorably, others don't. Former NYPD detective Dominick Misino has been involved in his share of hostage situations, and as host of this docu-series, he breaks down real-life hostage cases, one per episode, on a minute-by-minute timeline to show viewers what it took to rescue the hostages. Or if it didn't end so well, what went wrong. Computer graphics and animation bring high-energy re-creations to life to help viewers go into places where cameras could not in the crossfire of a hostage negotiation.
