ABC Series 2016: Designated Survivor

ABC added in its fall lineup a new political drama series, named “Designated Survivor”, centered around a lower-level White House cabinet member who is appointed the “designated survivor”, meaning the person to become President in case something happens to the effective President, so that continuity of government be maintained.
After a devastating attack on Washington, the designated survivor, Tom Kirkman, has to take over the role of Commander in Chief and thus his life changes.
The one who inhabits the character of Kirkman is the Canadian actor Kiefer Sutherland, the son of Donald Sutherland. The cast includes also Natascha McElhone, Maggie Q and Kal Penn.
Designated Survivor will premiere this fall and will air on Wednesdays, at 10 PM, replacing “Nashville”.
