If a teasing tango didn’t whet your appetite, maybe the heavy breathing and writhing shadows in a new promo for ABC’s The Catch will float your -watching boat.

Previously only available on iTunes, the teaser for the Shonda Rhimes production plays up the sexual charge between an elite private investigator, Alice Vaughan (The Killing‘s Mireille Enos) and her fiance Christopher (Parenthood‘s Peter Krause) — aka “Mr. X,” an elusive con man she and her team of snoops have been unsuccessfully chasing.

As the premiere (airing Thursday, March 24 at 10/9c) unfolds, Christopher cons Alice out of millions and vanishes, sending his would-be bride on a private mission for payback, no matter where it leads or the secrets she must keep along the way. Sonya Walger (Lost), glimpsed in the above promo, plays Christopher’s cohort in chicanery who later on starts to believe in the time Christopher's been away he fell in love with Alice, who he was supposed to charm and then con out of her money.

The cat-and-mouse game goes on to a full extent, with Christopher's conning leading on to a deceitful web of lies, cons, and dangerous events. Throughout this season which will eventually lead up to an ultimate, elaborate win for either Mireille Enos's character Alice or Christopher.

The Catch also stars Alimi Ballard (Numb3rs), Jay Hayden (Hulu’s Battleground), Jacky Ido (Taxi Brooklyn), Rose Rollins (The L Word) and Alisa Anneleise Evangeline Heinrich (Default).

The Series Premiere is on Thursday, March 24 at 10/9c on ABC
