‘The Forgotten Network’ is a group of amateur detectives united in their quest to give names to unnamed victims, and to bring their murderers to justice. Led by Alex (Christian Slater), a former detective haunted and driven by the disappearance of his own young daughter, these regular people gather in coffee shops or living rooms to discuss leads and clues and tips, each bringing their own motivations and skills to the table… working against the clock to give each victim a name, and to solve their cases. The Forgotten is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Warner Bros Television.
