Chosen follows Ian Mitchell -- a husband, father and lawyer -- who awakens one morning to discover a mysterious box on his doorstep containing a loaded gun and a photo of a stranger he must kill within the next three days. Ian quickly learns that if he doesn't kill this man, he may be killed himself along with his daughter who is being held hostage. Confused and desperate, Ian is transformed from an ordinary man into an unwilling assassin who must risk everything to protect his family.
Defense attorney Ian Mitchell (Ventimiglia) one morning discovers on his doorstep an ornamented wooden box containing a gun, the photograph of a stranger—dentist Daniel Easton (Bader)—and a deadline by which he must kill Easton. Just as he’s picking the package up, someone starts shooting at him. He calls the cops, but the cops who arrive, led by Detective Inkster (Baker), act oddly—oddest of all, they leave the unregistered gun with him. At first Ian’s inclined just to blow the whole thing off, but then it becomes clear the lives of his daughter Ellie (Carmichael) and estranged wife Laura (Whelan) may be forfeit should he fail to fulfill his unsought contract. He discovers he’s been made one of the players in a lethal game run for their own entertainment by a mysterious decadent group called The Watchers—one of whose agents proves to be Laura’s studly new boyfriend Chris (Branson). In the game, hapless victims must murder seemingly randomly chosen others while at the same time being themselves targets; as fuel to keep the “chosen” participating, their loved ones are threatened and/or abducted—and indeed Ian’s daughter Ellie is taken from him by two thugs in the guise of LAPD cops. (The conspiracy-theory trope that the LAPD is up to its eyes in this recurs throughout.) <...> - via Noirish [John Grant/Season 1]
