From famed writer/producer Shaun Cassidy (Cold
Case, American Gothic, Cover Me) comes a suspenseful
tale of a blended family trying to recover from
a devastating hurricane and its mysterious aftermath.
For centuries man has searched the skies for
signs of intelligent life forms. What if those
life forms were already here? And what if some
of the natural disasters we've been experiencing
of late were merely smokescreens to mask something
far more ominous?
For dedicated park ranger Russell Varon (Eddie
Cibrian, Third Watch), a divorced father of two
who is expecting a third child with his new wife,
local television reporter Larkin Groves (Lisa
Sheridan), the hurricane proves to be merely the
beginning of a long journey into the unknown.
Always skeptical about the paranoid conspiracy
theories of his wayward brother-in-law, Dave (Tyler
Labine, ABC's That Was Then), Russell may have
to revise his thinking when a number of bizarre
occurrences start taking place in his community.
Though Russell's young daughter, Rose (Ariel Gade),
claims to have seen hundreds of lights floating
towards the water during the storm, Russell initially
dismisses her claim - until he begins to suspect
that something is very wrong with his ex-wife,
Dr. Mariel Underlay (Kari Matchett, Angel Eyes).
The morning after the storm, Mariel is found naked
in the water -- with no memory of what transpired
the night before.
As the tiny town of Homestead, Florida struggles
to rebuild itself, Sheriff Tom Underlay (William
Fichtner, 2005's The Longest Yard, Black Hawk
Down, Armageddon, Go, Contact) -- who is married
to Russell's ex-wife -- suspiciously orders the
entire area quarantined. Russell starts to investigate
the strange goings on and unknowingly begins a
fight for the survival of his family, his community,
and what might ultimately be the whole human race.
Shaun Cassidy created the series and serves as
