"THE DISAPPEARANCE" MARKS THE LATEST ADDITION TO THE NETWORK'S "PRIME CRIME" PROGRAMMING SLATE

Peter Coyote, Camille Sullivan, and Aden Young Star in "The Disappearance"

Los Angeles, CA, March 13, 2018 -WGN America announced today that it has secured the U.S. rights to the gripping crime series "The Disappearance," starring Emmy(R) winner Peter Coyote ("The 4400," "Law & Order: LA"), Camille Sullivan ("The Man in the High Castle"), and Aden Young ("Rectify," Killer Elite). The six-part mystery event is created and written by Normand Daneau ("Unité 9," Niagara Motel) and Geneviève Simard, and directed by Peter Stebbings (Defendor, "Orphan Black"). Joanne Forgues ("Série noire," "Le Clan," "Les Invincibles") serves as Producer and Executive Producer of the series, alongside Executive Producers Sophie Parizeau and Jean-Marc Casanova. Emmy(R) Award-winning JoAnn Alfano ("30 Rock") and Kristen Del Pero are also Executive Producers for NBCUniversal International Studios.

"The Disappearance" has a unique and intense storyline that will take our audience on an emotional rollercoaster - into the very deep and real, heart-wrenching impact a missing child has on a family and community," said Gavin Harvey, President of WGN America. "We are very excited that this riveting series will have its US television premiere exclusively on WGN America."

When Henry Sullivan (Peter Coyote) organizes a treasure hunt for his grandson Anthony's (Michael Riendeau) tenth birthday, things take a turn for the worst when Anthony suddenly goes missing. "The Disappearance" follows Luke Sullivan (Aden Young) and Helen Murphy Sullivan (Camille Sullivan) as they delve into the all-consuming investigation of what happened to their son on that harrowing day. As the Sullivans and their extended kin grapple with the inexplicable mystery, deep familial secrets become uncovered and threaten to shatter the family unit.

"The Disappearance" is produced by Productions Casablanca in association with Bell Media and NBCUniversal International Studios. WGN America secured the U.S. Rights from NBCUniversal.

The compelling scripted drama is the newest series to join WGN America's slate of crime-focused programs since the acquisition of "Bellevue," "Shoot the Messenger," "Pure," and "100 Code." Rounding out the network's 'prime crime' lineup is "Blue Bloods," "Elementary," "Person of Interest," "Bones," "Law & Order," "Cops" and "Murder, She Wrote."
