Follows a class of FBI agents set in a near future where the U.S. criminal justice system has been transformed by artificial intelligence. A group of FBI agents who graduated from Quantico in 2009 are reunited following the death of a mutual friend. Spanning three decades and told across three interweaving timelines, the series examines the nature of justice, humanity and the choices we make that ultimately define our lives and our legacy.
There are also character breakdowns for the two main leads.
Henry will play Tayo Miller, one of the most brilliant and unorthodox Agents ever to join the Bureau, a man who seeks not merely to make his mark on the institution but to remake it entirely. Mara will play Amy Poet, a woman who never imagined joining the world of law enforcement and finds herself at the center of its most pivotal moment of transformation.
Brian Tyree Henry has been a busy bee with recently roles in Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, Joker, Child’s Play, Hotel Artemis, White Boy Rick, Widows, Godzilla Vs. Kong, Brad Pitt’s Bullet Train, and plays an openly gay MCU character in Chloe Zhao’s Eternals.
