Make way for an extraordinary month on Jack TV as it premieres a new action-packed series where nothing is impossible. Premiering January 27, Sunday at 9PM, Playing First on JackTV is Alphas, a show that follows a team of ordinary people with extraordinary abilities.
Able to stretch the capabilities of the human mind, an Alpha is someone who possesses superhuman physical and mental abilities. Dr Lee Rosen (Emmy Award-winner and Academy Award-nominee David Strathairn) an expert in Alpha phenomena, operates with the U.S. Department of Defense in investigating Alphas that choose to use their abilities for criminal activities.
Going head-to-head with this new brand of crime, Rosen puts together a team of Alphas that include Nina Theroux (Laura Mennell), a beautiful woman who has mastered the power of suggestion; Bill Harken (Malik Yoba), an FBI agent who can activate his fight or flight response at will; Rachel Pirzad (Azita Ghanizada), a 24-year-old woman who can increase any of her senses; Gary Bell (Ryan Cartwright), a high-functioning autistic man who can actually see electromagnetic waves around him; and Cameron Hicks (Warren Christie), a former marine with perfect accuracy and speedy reflexes.
As they work against the clock to solve Alpha related crimes, they must prevent their differences in opinion from interfering with their ultimate mission to catch the enemy.
Alphas premieres January 27, Sunday at 9PM Playing First on Jack TV.
