Starz announced today that the limited series, "The Missing," will debut Saturday, November 15th at 9pm ET/PT on Starz. The eight-episode dramatic thriller, directed by Tom Shankland ("Ripper Street") and written by Harry Williams and Jack Williams, centers on the psychological fallout and ensuing years-long manhunt resulting from the sudden disappearance of five-year-old Oliver Hughes while on holiday with his parents in France in 2006.

"The Missing" is a gripping dramatic thriller that goes inside the mind of a father, Tony Hughes, played by James Nesbitt ("The Hobbit" trilogy), desperate to locate his lost son. With help from local police detective, Julien Baptiste, played by Tcheky Karyo (GoldenEye), Tony embarks on an obsessive quest to find his son and those responsible for his disappearance. A gripping puzzle with twists and turns at every stage, Tony's exhaustive search fractures his relationship with his wife, Emily, played by Frances O'Connor (A.I.: Artificial Intelligence), and threatens to destroy his life. Told through a delicate and complex narrative, "The Missing" unfolds over two time frames simultaneously.

Shot in Brussels, Belgium, "The Missing" is produced by New Pictures and Company Pictures in association with Two Brothers Pictures and Playground and will air on BBC One in the UK in fall of 2014. all3media international retains all US rights not obtained by Starz.

The international ensemble cast also includes Emilie Dequenne (Laurence), Arsher Ali (Malik Suri), Titus De Voogdt (Vincent Bourg), Ken Stott (Ian Garrett), Said Taghmaoui (Khalid Ziane), Anamaria Marinca (Rini), Jean-Francois Wolff (Alain) and Astrid Whetnall (Sylvie).
