Ashley Judd, who stars as a mother searching for her son, will attend the red carpet premiere in Cannes.

MIPCOM 2011 attendees will find ABC Studios' TV series Missing at this year's market when the thriller premieres on Oct. 3rd in Cannes with its stars Ashley Judd, Cliff Curtis and Adriano Giannini on hand, organizers Reed MIDEM said on Thursday. The screening in the Palais des Festivals’ Grand Auditorium will be followed by a Q&A with the show's stars and production team before they head to the red carpet for MIPCOM’s Opening Night Party.

Missing is produced by Stillking Films and shot on location all across Europe including Prague, Istanbul and Dubrovnik. The show is a collaboration between creator/executive producer Gregory Poirier and executive producers Gina Matthews, Grant Scharbo, Steve Shill and James Parriott. Missing stars Judd as a woman who learns that her son disappeared while studying abroad in Rome then decides to take matters into her own hands and travels to Europe to track him down. “We’re very proud of this edge of your seat thriller and the great storytelling that spans continent. We hope that Missing is the first of what will be many truly global productions to come out of ABC Studios,” President of ABC Entertainment Group Paul Lee said.

Director of Reed MIDEM’s Television Division Laurine Garaude added:

“The MIPCOM World Premiere TV Screenings offer the ideal platform to preview, launch and raise awareness for the shows that audiences will be watching in the year to come."
