Storyline

A flight to Chicago is forced by a storm to a layover in Detroit, to hotel tycoon Hollingsworth's bitchy wife, heiress and deputy Susanne's fury, which rises to dismissal on the spot when her P.A. Rebecca White fails to book her a fast flight or a decent hotel. Rude as ever, kind only to her equally spoiled dog, complaining to the noisy neighbors this time gets her abducted, first as nasty witness, after identification as valuable prize, by Vlad's bunch of Russian white slavers, who tricked some local girls there, supposedly for an East European contest with a shot at a modeling career. When Rebbecca misses her, the company sends a ranking executive and enlists the FBI, but only the P.A. can make sense of a cryptic clue in her recorded ransom message. Written by KGF Vissers

Quite well made for a TV comedy thriller
20 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a well made for TV comedy thriller that is worth one watch. A 'Devil wears Prada' type boss played by Lauren Holly gets kidnapped by some sex traffickers. Her assistant helps rescue her.

Kaylee Defer from Gossip Girl and the slightly changed but still attractive Lauren Holly are the main cast members.

It's quite amusingly written especially with the Detroit "models" and Detroit jokes. The Russian jokes are a bit thin.

The story is moderately predictable but liked the dialog and the way things unfolded and was filmed.

It could have been painful but it isn't. Not bad.
