For fans of the police procedural series, the Universal Channel is about to embark on the new series Gone, which focuses on abductions/missing person cases and stars police crime drama veterans Chris Noth and Danny Pino and the Hunger Games alumna Leven Rambin. It may be an over-saturated TV genre but the series gives something a little different this time around by not only focusing on the cases but characters and their relationships too.
Gone tells the story of Kit “Kick” Lanigan (Leven Rambin, The Hunger Games), the survivor of a famous child-abduction case, and Frank Novak (Chris Noth, The Good Wife), the FBI agent who rescued her. Determined never to fall victim again, as an adult Kick has trained herself in martial arts and the use of firearms. She finds her calling when Novak persuades her to join a special task force dedicated to solving abductions and missing persons cases. Paired with former Army intelligence officer John Bishop (Danny Pino, Law & Order: SVU), along with other team members, Agent Kennedy (Tracie Thoms, Cold Case) and James Finley (Andy Mientus, Smash), the teamwork to solve cases and bring victims home.

The series is based on Chelsea Cain’s novel One Kick, created by Matt Lopez (The Sorcerers Apprentice) and produced by NBCUniversal International Studios (NBCUIS), RTL and TF1.
We had a chat with the three leading actors, Chris Noth, Leven Rambin and Danny Pino about the new series. Discussing why both Noth and Pino felt why they wanted to return to another police crime drama, Rambins delight at finally playing a well-written female role and the blows experienced on set due to Rambin’s fast-paced martial arts moves.
Gone premieres on 19th March at 9pm on Universal Channel.
