TV show description:
Nathan Ford (Timothy Hutton) was once a loyal fraud investigator for IYS Insurance. His point of view changed when the insurance company refused to pay for experimental treatment that could have saved his young son. Because of his intricate knowledge of scams, Nathan’s recruited by Victor Dubenich to join a team of talented criminals to “steal back” aeronautical plans that were supposedly stolen by a competitor.

When the job is completed, Dubenich tries to double-cross the team and unsuccessfully tries to blow them up. The group decides to run a con on their former employer and Dubenich ends up ruined and arrested by the FBI. When the the team is done, they form Leverage Consulting & Associates and start to help everyday people who’ve been ripped off by corrupt corporations and government agencies.

Among Nathan’s colleagues is Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman), a con-woman who uses her acting skills for art thievery. Ironically, though she’s very successful as an actress for the team’s scams, she has little success as a legitimate performer.

Eliot Spencer (Christian Kane) is a highly-skilled martial artist who is also a weapons and retrieval expert. He shows great proficiency with guns, yet despises them.

Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge) is a computer hacker extraordinaire and a gadget guru. A self-proclaimed geek, he also has a penchant for science fiction. Parker (Beth Riesgraf) doesn’t have a known first name, and is a thief, cat burglar, and explosives expert. She also has an unnatural love of money, and a soft spot for Alec and children. She and Alec share the common bond of both being raised by foster parents.

This is a great show/story line. I can relate to how so many of us have been wronged by Large companies and this show makes me feel good knowing that they were able to help others. Yeah I now it’s a TV show with made up story lines but Geeze I can see how they actually could hold some truth. I hope they will bring this back. So much better than the programs on the air now

One the very best t.v. shows made in a long time.It was smart,funny and heartwarming. I also thought it had one of the best group of characters and actors period.There are many shows that should be canceled but this is not one of them!!

It is really amazing that so many of the shows on TV are so shallow and mindless. This was a show that was entertaining, interesting and fun to watch. PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!! It was one of the best shows – what are you critics thinking!!!

A show that redeems people with past faults and unites them to help people- this is a winner.

The cast is so much better than many prime time shows that seem to promote rude language, no plot, and annoying characters.

Other shows in ION television are good but this was the best.

Why don’t you offer viewers a way to vote to bring it back.

All of the characters in Leverage have issues and personal challenges that make them relatable.

VERY disappointed Please bring it back.

I don’t think shows are picked by or for anyone who likes anything intelligent what so ever. Heaven forbid there be an interesting storyline!

Just think, how often does perfect casting happen ? these 4 people fit together like the perfect pieces of a puzzle. There are so many shows I can not get into because of casting. Great story line and action ,what the heck is wrong with everybody ! People watch all that lame brain garbage ,you know the ones I’m talking about, and real talent in acting and writeing gets canned. I flipping don’t get it ! Same thing with The Killing , perfect cating in every aspect,they can it. What about the rest of us that enjoys more than shows for zombies .

I totally agree Shelly. This was really one of the “better” programs on TV. It was not nonsense and had a point as well as a direction. Much like MASH, one of the best TV programs on the air.
