As the announcement comes in that Paul Tanter’s brand new series, No Easy Days, will be exclusively available to Amazon Prime in the UK and US, a new trailer has also arrived for the series.

The series is the creation of showrunners Paul Tanter and Simon Phillips, under their Dystopian Films banner, telling the story of a successful kidnap attempt on the daughter of the President of the United States, ramping up to a takeover of the White House itself.

The series follows the first daughter Alice Reynolds as she is kidnapped on her 18th birthday from a New York nightclub. The White House initiates emergency protocols, but as the kidnappers hunker down in an underground parking garage for the long haul, questions are raised about the President’s ability to objectively command such a situation.

Soon, the political moves towards the presidency prove as deadly as the actions of the gun-toting kidnappers with a gun to Alice’s head. Hope comes from an elite team of Navy Seals sent in to rescue the hostages, but soon the safety of the President himself in the Oval Office is under threat.
