USA / NBC – Universal – Fabrik Ent – Red Arrow Ent / x60 minute episodes / Broadcast from Sunday 5 April 2015 @ 10.00pm

Creators: Peter Horton, Adam Armus, Kay Foster / Music: John Debney / Executive Producers: Mikkel Bondesen, Henrik Bastin, Kristen Campo, Simon Maxwell, Peter Horton, Adam Armus and Kay Foster

Thriller series that aims to take the viewer on a complex journey through global politics, corporate espionage, and military secrets involving three strangers who only have one thing in common … the truth.

In this “Traffic”-like action drama, an international conspiracy explodes when the lives of a female Special Forces soldier, a disillusioned corporate lawyer and a political activist from a privileged family unexpectedly collide.

After a team of American soldiers battles jihadists in North Africa, they’re shocked to learn that they’ve stumbled upon and killed Al Qaeda’s top commander. Sgt. Odelle Ballard — a soldier, mother, wife and the unit’s only female member — discovers computer files that prove that a major U.S. corporation is funding the jihadists. But before she can tell anyone, her team is attacked and killed. The world is told that the unit was wiped out by enemy militants, but the truth is that Odelle survived and is the only witness to her unit’s true assassins: private military contractors Osela (think “Blackwater”).

As Odelle struggles to survive and find her way home, in New York former U.S. Attorney turned corporate litigator Peter Decker finds himself embroiled in a merger with the same company that funded the jihadists. As Peter begins to connect the corrupt dots of this company’s terrorist involvement, Harrison Walters, a political activist and trust fund kid, meets a hacker, Bob Offer, who claims to have unearthed a massive military-industrial-complex conspiracy. Bob is right: He’s stumbled onto the same cover-up that Odelle discovered, which will soon become a national headline with lethal implications. The only way they’ll ever save their country, their families and themselves is by joining forces and exposing the people behind it.

Variety said “There is, admittedly, quite a lot going on in the handsomely mounted pilot… (which) can’t obscure the been-there, seen-that sensation.” But what is more interesting in general TV terms is that it is another example, or sign that the major network are starting to buy into the HBO/Netflix/Starz continuing serial drama vibe as opposed to the story of the week.
