Alice is on the top of her game, but when her fiancé, Benjamin Jones, cons her out of millions and disappears, she suddenly becomes the victim and goes on a private mission for payback, stopping at nothing to catch her man. However, she is not the only one chasing Ben. FBI Agent Jules Dao has been following his criminal activity across Europe and now is closer than ever to capturing him and hopes to elicit Alice's help in taking him down. Meanwhile, the elusive Ben has slipped back into the dangerous and sexy world of international crime with his long-time partners, mastermind Margot Bishop and Reggie Lennox. With stakes this high, you can't make one misstep, but both Alice and Ben are playing with fire in this intoxicating game of cat and mouse, on the series premiere of The Catch.
Mireille Enos spoke to E! Online about following in the footsteps of Meredith Grey, (from Grey's Anatomy) Olivia Pope (from Scandal) and Annalise Keating (from How To Get Away With Murder). She said, "It doesn't feel like pressure because there's such a support system, you just feel like you've been handed this license to steal. There's already this amazing fanbase, incredible producers and Allan Heinbeg at the helm. So you just get to show up and revel in it."
