Sneak Peek: Persons Unknown

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 22nd 2009 2:37PM
At first I thought this was a movie, but it's actually a weekly series. NBC has picked it up for 13 episodes. It's about a group of people who are mysteriously kidnapped and wake up in an apartment building being watched and studied by...someone. Personally I don't know what they're complaining about, the apartment and the town look pretty nice to me. People are so hard to please these days.

The writer of The Usual Suspects is bringing Persons Unknown to NBC

The Usual SuspectsNever before has so little information gotten me so excited about a TV show.

Here's all I know. It's written by Christopher McQuarrie, who penned The Usual Suspects. That's good. It's about a group of strangers who wake up in a deserted town with no idea how they got there. They're being monitored by security cameras and have to work together on solving a puzzle to escape. It's Lost meets The Prisoner. That's it.

NBC picked up Persons Unknown for a thirteen-episode run and we're promised that it will be heavily serialized. I'm sold. I love the idea of different people from different backgrounds having to work together, and I have complete faith in McQuarrie. The Usual Suspects is one of the most brilliantly penned films I've ever seen.
