Anthony Edwards – along with a dynamic ensemble cast – returns to network series television in the dramatic adventure thriller, Zero Hour, which will have his character, Hank Galliston, questioning everything and everyone he ever believed in – including himself. Zero Hour premieres tonight (8-9 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
In the premiere episode, “Strike,” it’s a race against time for Hank Galliston (Edwards) after his wife, Laila (Jacinda Barrett), is abducted by the international terrorist “White Vincent” (Michael Nyqvist). As the publisher of a paranormal enthusiast magazine Modern Skeptic, Hank has spent his career debunking myths and investigating conspiracies. Now, seemingly out of nowhere, he is thrust into the middle of one of the biggest conspiracies in human history, sparked by his wife’s discovery of an antique clock at a Brooklyn flea market – a clock that possesses much more than the power to tell time. With help from FBI Agent Rebecca “Beck” Riley (Carmen Ejogo) and his two young magazine staffers, Rachel (Addison Timlin) and Arron (Scott Michael Foster), they set out on a journey to find Laila, but soon find their mission is much bigger than just saving one woman.
