Get Hooked On ‘The Family’ In Clips From The Premiere

ABC’s TGIT is about to get a whole lot more interesting. TGIT already has ABC powerhouse shows including Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, and How To Get Away With Murder, and now it’s adding it’s newest mystery, ‘The Family’.

In the ‘The Family’ a young boy is  kidnapped at a local fair while the boys brother and sister were supposed to be watching him. In this first clip, the family blames everyone else, and the young cop put to the case Nina Meyer (Margot Bingham) must do everything she can in order to help:


Years have passed and the boys Mother Claire (Joan Allen) has become Mayor, and is considering running for governor, the boys father John (Rupert Graves) has written a novel about dealing with the grief of child loss, the sister Willa (Alison Pill) is helping Claire with the campaign, and finally the oldest brother Danny (Zach Gilford) has turned to a life of drugs. Now in present day, Adam has returned in this clip:


When Adam was assumed dead, police found the Warren’s neighbor had a large amount of child porn and was thought to be the killer, so the court sentenced him to life in prison. After Adam returns, Hank (Andrew McCarthy) has been found innocent of all charges in this clip:


John runs into the newly free Hank at a grocery store, and John feels the need to apologize. Unfortunately, Hank’s life outside of prison has not been kind, and he refuses the apology:


After a kidnapped victim is returned, the most important part is finding out whatever details the police can find out from them. This, of course, can be very traumatic for them, but Nina insist on finding out what happened in this clip:



The pilot leaves open a huge plot point for the series, who kidnapped Adam? What does the “red dragon” even mean? Without giving anything away, during the episode, certain things start to unfold and not make sense. That leaves the biggest question to be answered what actually happened?

The Family series premiere is  this Thursday, March 3, 2016 at 9:00 PM ET on ABC.
