DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release) They don't just protect the president. They are the exclusive police force of the executive branch with clearance even the CIA doesn't have. In a job reserved for men, Agent Laura Kelly distinguished herself when she took the bullet that saved a politician's life. In the hospital, Laura weighs her choices. She's sacrificed her relationships, her family, and put her life in jeopardy to protect complete strangers. Laura's almost ready to quit when the opportunity to take on an important role, something few women ever get a shot at, brings her back. Her first case is to investigate her own shooting. Now Laura must prove her promotion was based on merit while balancing her personal and professional life. But everything has changed because, for the first time, she and her husband know fear. The director of SWAT and the executive producer of Alias introduce you to the women and men who protect the corridors of power. For Laura and The Service, every day presents a new danger and every case has national, even global, implications.
