Although The Event has been pegged as a sci-fi thriller, star Scott Patterson says that viewers will get hooked by how incredibly relatable and human the characters are.
"Who in the audience is not going to be able to relate to a guy who has his family ripped out under him and ends up doing what he does in the pilot?" the Gilmore Girls actor tells TVGuide.com
To recap, Patterson's character Michael Buchanan ends up piloting a plane headed for the president after his daughter Leila (Sarah Roemer) goes missing. Also on the plane is Leila's boyfriend, Sean Walker (Jason Ritter), who's trying to stop him.
Patterson describes his character as an affable and lovable man, who just so happens to find himself in a situation in the middle of a global conspiracy. Although a lot of questions grew out of the premiere, he says viewers will get a lot of answers in Episode 2.
