The President’s life is on the line in TBS Superstation’s original thriller “First Target,” premiering Sunday 10/15/00 at 8:00p.m. (ET) 7:00p.m. (PT).
Daryl Hannah plays Secret Service agent Alex McGregor, and Doug Savant plays her beau, Grant Coleman, a river guide who helped her save the President’s daughter from harm in last year’s “First Daughter.” In this sequel, the President (Gregory Harrison) is targeted for assassination during a national park commemoration in the mountains of Washington State, and it’s up to McGregor and Coleman to save him.
An effective action thriller, “First Target” gives us an interesting look at what lengths the Secret Service goes to in order to protect the President. Not only is it their duty to lay down their lives for the leader of the free world, but they willingly put their lives on the line for their comrades.
