Exclusive: CBS' Hostages Grabs Hilarie Burton
The new thriller drama follows Dr. Ellen Sanders (played by Toni Collette), a top-shelf surgeon who with her family is abducted by terrorists the night before she is to operate on the President of the United States. Burton will recur as Samantha, an assistant to Tate Donovan’s Brian Sanders — aka Ellen’s secret-keeping, commercial real estate-dealing husband.
An alum of One Tree Hill, Burton’s other recent TV credits include White Collar and Castle.
Hostages premieres Sept. 23, airing Mondays at 10/9c.
