'The Event': A sneak peek at NBC's new conspiracy thriller

the-event-320.jpgNBC wants to take you on a suspense-filled journey this Fall with " The Event."

The new conspiracy thriller on NBC's Fall schedule (Mondays, 9 - 10 p.m.) centers around a huge cover-up that even has the President ( Blair Underwood) on a need-to-know basis. While everyman Sean Walker ( Jason Ritter) investigates the mysterious disappearance of his fiancee ( Sarah Roemer), he stumbles across the truth behind the biggest cover-up in U.S. history.

"The Event," which some are describing as the new "24," also stars Scott Patterson ("Gilmore Girls"), Zeljko Ivanek ("Damages"), Taylor Cole ("Secret Girlfriend") and Laura Innes ("ER").

Executive producers include Nick Wauters ("The 4400," "Eureka") and Steve Stark ("Medium").
