When “The Missing” starts taking on the awards derby early next year, you’ll have no excuse to claim ignorance on what it’s about thanks to Starz making the premiere episode of this Golden Globes frontrunner available for free online. Scroll down to watch the premiere now.
Last year, Starz broke into the Golden Globes’ miniseries game with their BBC co-production “The White Queen.” While they lost out to HBO’s “Behind the Candelabra,” this year they hope to replicate that awards magic with “The Missing.”
Starring James Nesbitt (“The Hobbit”), Frances O’Connor (“Mr. Selfridge”) and French actor Tcheky Karyo, “The Missing” follows the story of a young English boy who’s abducted in Belgium in 2006 and the repercussions his kidnapping has on his parents and investigators over the next eight years.
For fans of non-linear storytelling, “The Missing” will be right up their alley as the timeline shifts from the 2006 kidnapping to the present-day 2014 story when a new clue to the child’s disappearance is discovered. Several hints about upcoming episodes are revealed within the first hour, but you must watch the complete series to fully understand all of the pay-offs.
The miniseries premiered on Starz on Nov. 15 and will last a total of eight episodes. Do you think “The Missing” will earn a Golden Globe nomination for Best Limited Series?
