Wendell Pierce to Star in Bounce TV Thriller ‘Don’t Hang Up’

Don’t Hang Up (Bounce)

Bounce TV premieres its new action-thriller Don’t Hang Up this weekend starring Wendell Pierce, Lauren Holly and Eden Cupid.

The Wire actor plays a father who is desperately trying to find his daughter (Cupid) after he gets a harrowing call that she’s been kidnapped with a demand for a ransom. Pierce’s character Chris is ordered by the kidnappers to complete a series of missions to get her back, all while maintaining one deceptively simple rule: Don’t hang up.

His wife Tracy (Holly) calls the police and puts his daughter’s safe return in jeopardy.

Over 24 hours, Chris is on a twisted odyssey to get his daughter back.

“As an actor, I always look for opportunities to do good work with good material. Don’t Hang Up is a film that meets this standard,” Pierce said in a statement. “I’ve always wanted to do a thriller, where an ordinary man is thrown into an extraordinary situation.”

The movie is based on true events and directed by J.B. Sugar (Faith Heist, Bitten) from a screenplay by Byl Caruthers and produced by Sugar and Ella Myers for No Equal Entertainment.

Don’t Hang Up premieres Sunday, March 20 at 8 p.m. ET on Bounce.
