TV show description:
As a young boy, genius Jarod Russell was taken from his parents and trained in a fortress-like facility by the secret organization known as The Centre.

He is raised by kind psychiatrist Dr. Sydney Green (Patrick Bauchau) and trained to become a “pretender,” someone who is able to flawlessly integrate himself into any profession or lifestyle. Eventually, pretenders are sold to the highest bidder and are used for a number of nefarious purposes.

As an adult, Jarod (Michael T. Weiss) escapes The Centre to search for his parents and expose the organization. Other pretenders that are hot on his trail include alluring assassin Miss Parker (Andrea Parker), and the team of Brigitte (Pamela Gidley) and Bobby Lyle (James Denton).

Canceled and renewed TV show

    I don’t think the show would be what people wants to see. ( I mean look at whats on today?) But most of us fans would pay for a movie on DVD if it close it out, end it some how. But don’t put him back in.

    By the way if I am not mistaken Jarad cant merry miss Parker as there is a hint that they may be brother and sister. Still what about the rest. What happen’s to the baby, the scrolls did Mr Parker kill his wife, is he Miss Parkers father. Answer’s would be good.
