What do you do when you combine the movie franchise Saw, crazy-weird series Lost and the NBC show Kidnapped? Persons Unknown.

This upcoming NBC miniseries revolves around strangers who have been taken away from their ordinary lives and imprisoned inside a small ghost town. To get out, they have to engage in a sort of surreal mind game. They are watched by omnipresent security cameras and "mysterious" forces continue to thwart every effort they have of leaving town.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.

The only source of information that gets to them is via random and remotely controlled televisions. When they realized that it can very well be a survival of the fittest, mistrust begins to breed - especially so when new guests begin to arrive.

Daisy Betts star as Janet, who wakes up to find herself locked in a hotel room with no memory of how she got there. She was taken from her five-year-old daughter in broad daylight by two men in jumpsuits. She is unable to break the door, until a stranger, Joe (Jason Wiles), breaks it down for her, while explaining that he more or less went through the same thing.

They soon find others with the same experience stuck in the same floor: Charlie (Alan Ruck), an investment banker; Graham (Chadwick Boseman), a Marine sergeant; Moira (Tina Holmes), a counselor; and Victoria (Kate Lang Johnson), a party girl.

After getting out of the hotel, they find that they're in a small ghost town in the middle of nowhere. Attempts to get over the edge are futile, as they mysteriously collapse when they get close.

Persons Unknown premieres June 7, 10pm on NBC.
