TV show description:
Developed by writer Liz Heldens, The Passage TV show is based on the Justin Cronin book trilogy of the same name. The thriller series centers on Project NOAH, a secret medical facility at which scientists are experimenting with a virus which could either cure all diseases or destroy all of humanity.
When Federal Agent Brad Wolgast (Gosselaar) is assigned to bring in a new test subject, everything changes for him. The test subject in question is just a young girl, Amy Bellafonte (Sidney). It is not long before Wolgast falls into a paternal relationship with the child and realizes he must protect her, no matter what.
Brad and Amy run up against the top scientists at Project NOAH, including Major Nichole Sykes (Chikezie) and Dr. Jonas Lear (Cusick). The two also have to confront former Navy Operative Clark Richards (Piazza), an old trainee of Brad’s.
As their journey progresses, Brad and Amy meet up with a new race of beings who have been locked inside of Project NOAH. These include former scientist Tim Fanning (McShane), as well as death-row convicts Shauna Babcock (Howey) and Anthony Carter (Belcher).
On the hunt for allies, Brad turners Dr. Lila Kyle (Chriqui), who is also his ex-wife. Meanwhile, as the scientists are getting closer to a potential cure, the new creatures start to try out their powers and work toward an escape, the consequences of which would be catastrophic.
