Mykelti Williamson is set and Linus Roache (Batman Begins) and Delroy Lindo are in talks to star in NBC's suspense drama pilot Kidnapped, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Carmen Ejogo (HBO's Lackawanna Blues) and Boris McGiver (Taxi) also have been cast in the project, produced by NBC Universal Television in association with Sony Pictures Television and studio-based 25C Prods.
Written by Jason Smilovic and to be directed by Michael Dinner, Kidnapped, which is described as a blend of suspense thriller and family drama, revolves around a wealthy New York family whose 15-year-old son is kidnapped and held for ransom with the story being told from multiple points of view.
Smilovic, Dinner and 25C's Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly are executive producing the pilot, which is slated to begin production shortly in New York.
