Beverly Hills, Calif. – January 24, 2017 – Starz announced today that all eight episodes of the Golden Globe® and Emmy® award-nominated thriller “The Missing” will be made available for STARZ subscribers on the STARZ app and streaming services, as well as STARZ ON DEMAND simultaneously with its network premiere on Sunday, February 12.
Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht said, “The STARZ series ‘The Girlfriend Experience’ and ‘Flesh and Bone’ experienced considerable growth in binge watching over the course of their seasons, and we believe the same success will hold true for ‘The Missing.’ The thriller aspect of the season is such an adrenaline rush, that we believe many viewers will want to watch more than one episode at a time. It’s truly addictive storytelling.”

About “The Missing”
The anthology series follows parents Sam (David Morrissey) and Gemma Webster (Keeley Hawes), whose daughter, Alice, went missing in 2003. Eleven years later, a young British woman stumbles through the streets of her German hometown and announces herself as Alice Webster (Abigail Hardingham), the girl who went missing over a decade prior. Alice’s sudden return causes ripples of suspicion through the small community, especially when it is revealed she may hold vital clues to the whereabouts of another missing girl, Sophie Giroux, who vanished shortly before Alice. Haunted by the unsolved Giroux case, French detective Julien Baptiste (Tchéky Karyo) is motivated out of retirement to follow new information that Alice may have on Sophie’s disappearance. Told across three timelines, flitting between 2014 and the present day, we follow Alice’s family as they are thrown into a turmoil that threatens to tear them apart at the seams.”
