The Catch will air on Thursday nights at midseason and tell the story of Mireille Enos as Alice, a successful fraud investigator.

As teased in the following trailer, she becomes victim of fraud herself by her fiancé Kieran (Krause), prompting her to track him down and kick-starting a delicious game of cat and mouse.

The Catch pilot will be written by Hannibal scribe Jennifer Schuur and the series is based on an idea by novelist Kate Atkinson and Helen Gregory.
