Here's the trailer and the synopsis for the fourth episode of Designated Survivor season 2...

In the first season of Designated Survivor, Tom Kirkman (the legendary Kiefer Sutherland) was only the Secretary of Housing & Urban Development, but he became President Of The United States in what can only be described as a very dramatic take on King Ralph - everyone above him in the line of succession was killed in a terrorist attack that for some reason Jack Bauer was unable to prevent, and now Kirkman's the man in charge.

Kiefer Sutherland stars in the hugely entertaining thriller Designated Survivor. Here's a spoiler-free look at why you should give it a try.

Heard of the show Designated Survivor? It might just quench your thirst (whether you knew you had it or not) for a new thriller to follow.

Acting legend Sir John Hurt dies aged 77
