Unit Zero (ABC Toni Collette, Rob Heubel)

Published

on

At the CIA, there are heroes — and then there is Unit Zero, a team of desk jockeys who suddenly find themselves thrust into the crossfire when they must go into the field for the first time as spies. No longer just fetching coffee and setting up the boss’ powerpoint presentation, these unlikely heroes will solve cases of national security and succeed because no one will ever suspect they are spies.

This team of zeroes is done dreaming small. It’s time to “dream average.” Their leader Jackie Fink (Toni Collette) is a whipsmart engineer responsible for inventing the coolest spy gadgets you’ll ever see. She’s also a single mom who’s trying to figure things out with Gabe, her one-night-stand and the father of her child.

Each member of Unit Zero is so much more than they appear on the surface. Phineas Bog is treated just like any other IT nerd, but he’s the head of cyber security, the smartest guy in the room, and hiding a huge crush on Jackie. Brianna Pierce, Jackie’s best friend, is a maverick spy on probation. She’s looking to prove she deserves to be back in the field. But underneath her motorcycle-riding, badass persona, you’d never guess that when it comes to her friends, she’s all heart.

Midge Glass is only known around the office for her pumpkin bread, but underneath her sweet face and tacky sweaters, is a whole other person. She can disassemble a field rifle just as fast as she can whip up a lemon tart. And lastly there is Azeema Khabiri, the overeager, coffee-making college intern, who’s a third level black belt and a whiz at Middle Eastern dialects, who just can’t wait to be a spy. The team jets to Mexico to take on a homicidal hacker and rumble with a drug cartel.

Only Mike Barclay, head of the CIA, knows what they can do. He’s so impressed with their work, he makes them a secret team of spies – even secret to the rest of the CIA. He knows they’re zeroes, but he also knows they’re the only ones he can count on for the toughest, most sensitive missions.
