Stars from new NBC series "Manifest" reveal their characters

NBC is debuting a new show called "Manifest" this fall. It follows the return of the crew and passengers of a flight who went missing years prior. Two of the stars, Melissa Roxburgh and J.R. Ramirez appeared on Sunrise to talk about it with Grace Lee.

Roxburgh plays Michaela Stone who is a police officer. She gets on the plane with her son, only to return to a changed world. They don't know why, but 5 years have gone by while they were on the flight. Her husband Jared Vasquez, played by Ramirez, is now married to her best friend, her mom has died and she has no idea how it all happened.

Jared is a detective. Ramirez said of his character that he loves to help people, has a big heart, wears his emotion on his sleeve. He thinks before he speaks, his world has pretty much got rocked, and turned upside down when Michaela went missing. He spent a long time mourning her loss. Her best friend understood that loss and through that, they built a new, beautiful relationship and get married. But now that Michaela is back, he's stuck. To make matters more dramatic, Jared and Michaela work together at the same precinct.

Manifest premiers on Monday,  at 9 p.m. Hawaii time on KHNL.
