It’s one thing to catch criminals and throw them behind bars but it’s an entirely new problem when it comes to fugitives who escape from prison. They won’t give up because once out, they have nothing left to lose. In order to avoid casualties the police has to outsmart them, and more importantly, to be one step ahead of them, to be inside their heads.
This is why Special Deputy U.S. Marshal Ray Zancanelli (Domenick Lombardozzi) comes out with the perfect team. But he seems the only one with this opinion. Generally speaking, a team made of convicts doesn’t sound like a trustworthy idea. In order to think like the fugitives he needed people from inside; Ray selects 4 convicts to help him in exchange of a transfer to a minimum-security prison and a reduction of their sentences based on the number of fugitives they catch. In order to keep them focused and not to let them get any ideas, in case one of them tries to escape, all of them get thrown back into prison with a doubled sentence.
His team is made of former dealer and gang leader (weapon, drugs) Shea Daniels (Malcolm Goodwin), a bounty hunter with anger management and a line of dead bodies left behind, Erica Reed (played by Serinda Swan) and a socially awkward gambling addict and behaviorist with Harvard degree, Dr. Lloyd Lowery (Jimmi Simpson).
But Ray is not clean either. Recently put back in his position, he is supervised (along with his chosen team) by the head of the task force and Deputy U.S. Marshal Charlie Duchamp (Laz Alonso),who had been given a desk job because of his health condition. He is the conscience of the squad, making sure that Ray has taken the right decision in setting up this team.
Well written and with a sharp plot for each episode, this series has a great plus for originality and character development.
