TV show description:
A high-tech police drama series, APB is inspired by a New York Times Magazine article by David Amsden.
The Chicago Police Department is spiraling out of control thanks to high crime, officer-involved shootings, cover-ups, corruption, and under-funding. Billionaire engineer Gideon Reeves (Justin Kirk) wants to change all that. After his best friend is murdered in a botched robbery attempt, the killer remains at large and Reeves demands justice.
Putting up millions of dollars of his own money, he makes an unprecedented deal to take charge of the troubled 13th District. He wants to reboot it as a technically innovative police force. With Gideon himself having created the department’s cutting-edge technology, this eccentric yet brilliant outsider challenges the city’s police force to rethink everything about the way they fight crime.
But the near-overnight transition to becoming the city’s most advanced police district isn’t easy. Gideon knows that, if he’s going to change anything, he needs help. He finds this help in Detective Theresa Murphy (Natalie Martinez). She’s an ambitious, street-smart cop who’s willing to give Reeves’ technological changes a chance.
Skeptical Captain Ned Conrad (Ernie Hudson), Officer Nicholas Brandt (Taylor Handley), and Officer Tasha Goss (Tamberla Perry) are going to be a bit harder to convince.
With the help of Reeves’ gifted tech officer, Ada Hamilton (Caitlin Stasey), Reeves and Murphy embark on a mission to turn the 13th District into a dedicated crime-fighting force of the 21st century.

When Gideon is blamed for recent terrorist attacks, he and Captain Conrad work fast to track down the real culprit.

Discover who makes it out alive.
