Missing is an American action-mystery thriller drama television series, starring Ashley Judd, Cliff Curtis and Sean Bean. The series ran from March 15, 2012 to May 17, 2012 on ABC. Ten episodes were ordered for the first season and canceled the series on May 11, 2012. The show was nominated for two Emmy Awards in 2012 – one for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie (Judd) and the other for Outstanding Music Composition for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special.
The series follows Rebecca "Becca" Winstone (Ashley Judd), a widow and retired CIA agent with an 18-year-old son, Michael (Nick Eversman). In 2001, when Becca and her husband Paul Winstone (Sean Bean) are active CIA agents, he is killed in a car bombing witnessed by their son. In the pilot episode, Michael informs his mother that he has been accepted to a summer architecture program in Rome, Italy. Becca, who now lives an ordinary life running a florist shop, is hesitant to let him go but gives in.
After not hearing from him for over a week and receiving a call from the architecture school informing her that Michael has moved out of his dorm room, Becca travels to Rome to track him down, but she finds herself in the middle of an international conspiracy involving the CIA and an Interpol agent (Adriano Giannini) who was once her lover. When Paul is found alive, they work together to find Michael. Meanwhile, Michael meets a Russian girl, Oksana (Tereza Voříšková), whom he befriends, and they team up to escape.
