Jason Ritter plays an average citizen who uncovers a massive conspiracy
Premièring September 20, 2010, on NBC, "The Event" is an emotional, high-octane conspiracy thriller that follows Sean Walker (Jason Ritter), who investigates the mysterious disappearance of his would-be fiancée, Leila (Sarah Roemer, "Disturbia"), and unwittingly begins to expose the biggest cover-up in U.S. history.

Their futures are on a collision course in a global conspiracy that could ultimately change the fate of mankind.
