Designated Survivor is a hit series on ABC where Tom Kirkman (Kiefer Sutherland) must become the President overnight when every other possible politician is killed in a bombing. Despite being a low-level cabinet member, he was sworn in as the designated President in the wake of a catastrophic event that wipes out the chain of command. It was only ever supposed to be a safeguard, but when every single person above Kirkman in the line of succession is killed, only he can answer the call.

Kirkman must keep the country calm and running, all while tracking down those responsible for the attack on Washington. Family, friends and his social life are all put on hold as the role proves to be more than he can handle.
