The synopsis has been released for The CW’s Professionals, which stars Tom Welling and Brendan Fraser. The series is set to premiere on Tuesday, October 11.
SERIES PREMIERE – Multi-billionaire and philanthropist Peter Swann (Brendan Fraser) wants to set new standards in modern medicine. The satellite-supported “Panacea” project is intended to identify at an early stage in which regions of the world viral diseases break out and to guarantee the rapid supply of vaccines to people. At the Dublin headquarters of the Swann corporate empire, Peter and his fiancée, the physician Dr. Grace Davila (Elena Anaya), follow the transmission of the rocket launch but the highly sophisticated satellite cannot make it into orbit. Peter thinks it was sabotaged, but he has no proof. Grace convinces him to bring in security expert Vincent Corbo (Tom Welling) to investigate. The Private Military Contractor (PMC) and Grace had a relationship seven years ago, after Vincent saved the doctor’s life during an operation in the Syrian-Iraqi border area. Vincent, Peter and Grace travel to French Guyana. They quickly find the first clues of a conspiracy, not only against the “Panacea” project, but against Peter’s entire company. Bharat Nalluri directed the episode written by Michael Colleary (#101).
The series also stars Elena Anaya, Stevel Marc, Ken Duken, Jazzara Jaslyn, August Wittgenstein, Tanya van Graan, Nic Rasenti, and Kai Luke Brummer.
Check it out when it premieres on October 11 at 9 p.m. ET.
