DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release, March 2014) Based on the hit Swedish TV Series, Annika Bengtzon and from the Swedish producers of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, EXPOSED is a character driven serialized thriller about the relationship between a fugitive whistle blower and an investigative journalist at Rolling Stone. Based on the Annika Bengtzon series of books from the New York Times #1 best-selling author Liza Marklund. Anna Loach is a fearless investigative journalist for Rolling Stone Magazine. She doesn't shy away from controversy and her instincts lead her to stories other journalists overlook. Her last expose on police brutality made it onto the cover of an upcoming issue, but her next story may top it. What starts as an investigation into the death of a foreign-born high school student, leads to deeply troubling truths about local police and underage coerced drug informants. Anna follows the story to Fresno, where she is tracked down by a fugitive whistle blower, alias "Stoya," who hints at a government surveillance conspiracy so big and so deep, it's beyond science fiction. Anna uses Stoya's information to unravel the mystery in Fresno, but it becomes clear that the real story is Stoya himself, and the secrets he holds in his head. As her relationship with Stoya shifts from professional to personal, our heroine must question whether his exposure is for the greater good, and at what cost. Her brother, who runs a high tech security firm, warns her that pursuing this story is too dangerous. Whistleblowers are silenced by very ordinary accidents. That night, when her car is blocked on the road, it becomes clear that the people after Stoya go all the way to the top of the government. They are on to her, but she will stop at nothing to uncover the truth.
