I was watching the first episode of the TV series Hostages on CBS last night.

The premise of the series is that a team lead by a FBI agent holds hostage the family of a doctor who is about to operate on the President of the United States. They force the doctor to add a drug during the operation so that the President dies during the operation, if the doctor doesn't do it they will kill the doctor's family.

In the episode last night, the events was supposed to run the course of a day, but the doctor switches yet another a drug in the President's daily drug routine and it cause his blood to thin out, there by delaying the operation for another two weeks.

So I guess the series might be focusing on the hostage takers and the hostages at the doctor's home.
