Shanola Hampton's Gabi has her own secrets — and captor — in her basement as she aims to bring home "the ones that no one else seems to be looking for"
A chilling new drama is headed to television and it'll be shining a light on the 600,000+ people of color who go missing in America per year.
NBC’s new original series, Found, follows a fictionalized version of these harrowing events, and one woman who has committed her life to bringing the missing home. When the rest of the world forgets their stories, Gabi Mosely (Shameless’ Shanola Hampton), does not.
It might be because she’s passionate about speaking for unheard voices. Or, it may be because she’s a kidnapping survivor herself — with a heavy secret she won’t give up willingly.
The series' trailer, debuting exclusively with PEOPLE, shows the character’s backstory as a 16-year-old who saved herself from her villainous kidnapper Sir, played by Saved by the Bell alum Mark-Paul Gosselaar.
“I have to ask, does it haunt you that your kidnapper was never found?” Mosley, who is now a Missing Person’s Crisis Manager, is asked on the news. She shakes her head and confidently responds, “Haunt? No.”
As passionate as Mosley may be about her job, it seems she’s not acting on her instincts with the aid of police. Instead, she's crossing crime scene lines, planting hidden cameras, and solving cases on her own.
It makes an enemy of law enforcement who question how she "figured out" a case before they could.
Mosley isn’t afraid to throw a punch or two, saying, “We all have our secrets.”
Then, her biggest secret is revealed: her kidnapper is now her victim, living chained in her basement and solving her most serious crimes.
“Where would you have taken her?” Mosley asks her previous captor, sliding Sir a file folder and cup of water.
“The ones that no one else seems to be looking for. We find them, and we return them safely,” she says of her goal, later adding, "I won't let what you did to me be for nothing. Whatever it takes."
Though the ultimate mission is a safe return for the missing people, there’s a shortage of peace in Mosley’s approach — from chains and baseball bats, to a possible friendship with the man who took her childhood away from her.
"I tell you what to help with and you help with it," Mosley tells Sir, who quips back, "Quite the partnership."
She clarifies, "We're not partners, you're a monster," and he responds, "You think you're not like me? You are so self-righteous ... you kidnapped a man."
As their battle for control goes back and forth, the trailer ends with Mosley making a chilling realization. "You want to be here, don't you?" she asks Sir.
"Remove the chain and find out," Sir dares her.
Nothing is as simple as it seems in Found, which is executive produced by Nkechi Okoro Carroll (All American) and Berlanti Productions. Sonay Hoffman, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Leigh London Redman and Lindsay Dunn also serve as executive producers on the new series.
