The show follows Sheriff Jack Carter, as he strives to maintain law and order over a town exclusively populated by geniuses. The gifted townspeople are consistently met with conflict arising from egotistical scientists and scientific experimentation gone awry (often times threatening humanity's very existence within the physical world, as we know it). Carter is supported by The Deputy Jo Lupo (Erica Cerra), engineer Henry Deacon (Joe Morton) and medic Allison Blake (Salli Richardson-Whitfield, in this comedic sci-fi thriller.
