Designated Survivor is headed to the Wednesday night lineup on ABC this fall, and the network has released two brand new previews for the new Kiefer Sutherland series.
On Designated Survivor, Sutherland will play the one person in the US government separated from the rest of the pack during the State of the Union address. If everyone else is killed, he is the man that steps into the role of President of the United States.
The unthinkable happens on this series, and one of the short clips shows viewers just how everyone else dies.
Sutherland has more than just this new ABC series keeping him busy at the moment. With his music also a focus of his career and his involvement with 24: Legacy, fans will see a lot of him in the months ahead.
In a recent interview with Yahoo, Sutherland teased the following about the position his character is put in. He said:
“[Kirkman] is put in a position, going into the White House overnight, that is going to cost his family. The international and domestic pressures of stabilizing the country after such an attack is going to be near impossible to do.”
Check out the two new previews from ABC below.
