Synopsis

Alphas is an action-packed thriller from writers Zak Penn (The Avengers, X-Men: The Last Stand) and Michael Karnow.

In the series, five ordinary people are brought together to form one extraordinary team of Alphas - people with the unique power to stretch the capabilities of the human mind giving them superhuman physical and mental abilities.

Operating within the Defence Criminal Investigation Service of the U.S. Department of Defence and led by preeminent neurologist and psychiatrist Dr. Lee Rosen (David Strathairn), an expert in Alpha phenomena, the team investigates cases that point to others with Alpha abilities.

As they work against the clock to solve this new brand of crime, they must prevent their own personality differences and disparate backgrounds from interfering with their ultimate mission to catch the enemy.

In addition to Strathairn (Temple Grandin, Good Night, and Good Luck), the ensemble cast stars Malik Yoba (New York Undercover, Why Did I Get Married?), Warren Christie (October Road), Laura Mennell (Watchmen), Ryan Cartwright (Mad Men, Bones) and Azita Ghanizada (Castle).
