The CW has released the Official Synopsis of Professionals episode “Snipe Hunt” (1.01) that will be aired on Tuesday, October 11 at 09:00-10:00 PM.
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.
“Professionals” stars Tom Welling, Brendan Fraser, Elena Anaya, Jazzara Jaslyn, Ken Duken.
Bharat Nalluri directed the episode written by Michael Colleary (#101).
PROFESSIONALS follows Vincent Corbo, a top-tier security operative who is paid to protect the interests of rich and powerful clients by any means necessary – legal or not. After a next-gen medical-data satellite explodes on launch, Corbo is hired by the rocket’s designer, billionaire futurist Peter Swann, who suspects sabotage. Complicating Corbo’s new gig is his former paramour and now Swann’s fiancée, medical visionary Dr. Grace Davila, who is racing to help stave off a global catastrophe.
