UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Nov. 5 (UPI) -- The small-screen version of the international thriller Taken -- starring Clive Standen -- is set to debut on NBC Feb. 27.

The show will immediately follow the premiere of the spring cycle of the musical competition series The Voice.

"Monday nights are critical to our success," NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement, "and we're going strong into the rest of the season with the return of The Voice in February followed by the premiere of Taken, along with additional episodes of our great new series Timeless. We're very happy to welcome Gwen Stefani back to The Voice, along with Blake [Shelton,] Adam [Levine,] and our new coach Alicia Keys. And Taken is a thrilling new series inspired by the hit movie franchise, but updated in a very clever way."

The fall time-travel drama Timeless, starring Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Višnjić, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit, recently got a full-season order that means episodes will air through early 2017.
