On March 16, NBC will premiere Crisis, the new drama starring Gillian Anderson, Dermot Mulroney, Lance Gross, and Rachael Taylor, which imagines what powerful parents can be convinced to do when their children are in danger. Below, watch a sneak peek of the ambush that sets the story in motion during a field trip for the students of Ballard High — the children of Washington, D.C.’s elite, among them the president’s son.

Crisis airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
