Crisis' Rachael Taylor: I Hope Viewers "Love to Hate" My Character

Gillian Anderson, Rachael Taylor

There's not a lot of time for character development in the pilot episode of Crisis, NBC's hostage thriller that premieres Sunday. The first hour is more preoccupied with immersing viewers into the action and getting a couple of major twists out of the way than delving into the depths of its major players.

But here's what we do know: A bus of children is taken hostage by a group of highly trained criminals while on a field trip. What do the bad guys want? It's unclear. But the children's parents all hold positions of power in Washington, D.C., ranging from the CEO of a major corporation (Gillian Anderson) to the president of the United States. There's also a nearly unrecognizable Dermot Mulroney playing a shlubby parent chaperone who's an embarrassment to his daughter, but who defies expectations when it comes to the events that unfold. And in a made-for-TV coincidence, the no-nonsense FBI agent in charge of the case, Susie Dunn (Rachael Taylor), is the estranged sister of Anderson's character, Meg Fitch.

How The Goldbergs and Other New Shows Kept Their Theme Songs

The Goldbergs

When Adam F. Goldberg created his 1980s-set ABC sitcom The Goldbergs, he knew he needed to include a catchy title tune. "The '80s was the Golden Age of theme songs," he says.
