Channel 4 gets 'Kidnapped', 'Runaway'

Kidnapped / NBC

Channel 4 has picked up another two new dramas from the US, the broadcaster has confirmed.

The acquisitions - both from Sony Pictures - include Kidnapped, starring Jeremy Sisto (Six Feet Under) as a hostage negotiator trying to solve the abduction of a wealthy couple's teenage son. The series will air on NBC at 10pm Wednesdays.

The other pickup is Runaway, a Prison Break-style drama with Donnie Wahlberg (Boomtown) as a wrongly convicted man who escapes from jail and tries to prove his innocence.

Both shows will air on Channel 4 and E4 in 2007 and add to the broadcaster's previously announced comedy and drama pickups.
