The Rendezvous

Schedule

Friday, Nov. 11 at 7:15pm

The Jordan-shot “The Rendezvous” places a developing romance between Jewish-American doctor Rachel (Stana Katic of “Castle”) and Arab-American government bureaucrat Jake (Raza Jeffrey of “Homeland”) against a vivid backdrop of intrigue and adventure. After Rachel's treasure-hunting brother dies in the Middle East, the pair travels across the globe in an attempt to untangle the mysteries surrounding his death. But they find themselves unexpectedly hunted by a doomsday group, the Armageddonites, who believe Rachel and Jake possess an ancient script discovered by her brother — an artifact that could bring about the end of days. Caught in the middle of a plot to hasten the extinction of mankind, Rachel and Jake now find that they’re required not only to solve a murder but also to save the world. In the process, they make a far more personal discovery, learning that treasure is where you find it.
