Nine surviving hostages from a spectacular bank hold-up meet regularly. The memories keep haunting them, in flash-backs slowly revealing that story. Two surviving perpetrators in jail, brothers, and the police, including survivor Nick, also remain focused on its aftermath, which keeps affecting all of them, their loved ones, colleagues etcetera.

It's amazing to me how anyone watching the pilot to The Nine could have thought for a second about ordering this show.
The pilot was a visual mess, directed by a director who does not understand visual storytelling. To wit, shaking the camera at everything is not directing, it's just, well, shaking the camera at everything in sight.
Add to that songs that sounded like they were force-fed on the show by a team of deaf marketing executives, and you have a show that never delivered and never had even a prayer of delivering.
If that's what the creator of Without a Trace has in store, he should go back to his hit show.
