halston-sage-joshua-erenberg-crisis-nbc.jpgThe comparisons between NBC's "Crisis" and CBS' "Hostages" are inevitable: Both are set in Washington, and both involve people being abducted for nefarious yet shadowy purposes.

Complicating matters further, the two shows star oft-confused actors Dermot Mulroney ("Crisis") and Dylan McDermott ("Hostages"). But as you'll see in the teaser below, the similarities pretty much stop there.

"Crisis" is about a group of high-school kids -- including the president's son and the children of other powerful Washington players -- who are adbucted while on a field trip. The bad guys then use those parents to help achieve their ends.

"Crisis" premieres at 10 p.m. ET Sunday, March 16 on NBC. Take a look at the teaser:
