According to Deadline, the story focuses on Ethan, a brilliant but misanthropic engineer who recruits a skeptical Homeland Security psychiatrist, Nora (Miller) to help him track a mysterious bank robber whose theft of 66 specific safety deposit boxes, belonging to the elite and powerful, sets in motion a series of blackmails that might be linked to a greater conspiracy.

The pilot is written by Jeff Pinkner, Andre Nemec, Josh Applebaum and Scott Rosenberg of Midnight Radio. The four writers are also credited as executive producers on the ABC Studios produced show.
