Plot Synopsis

ALMOST PARADISE is a one-hour drama series that centers on Alex Walker, a former US DEA agent, who was forced into early retirement. Once the DEA's most resourceful undercover operative, the combination of his partner's betrayal and a life-threatening battle with hypertension has sent him as far from the madness as he can go -- a small tropical island in the Philippine Archipelago. He now runs the gift shop at the island's luxury resort hotel, gets his disability payments at the nearby US Air Force base, and generally manages his transition from Jason Bourne to Jimmy Buffett. BUT, the island's luxury resorts attract rich, powerful, and sometimes criminal elite from around the world, often on a collision course with Alex. He stumbles across a local undercover operation just when it is about to take a very bad turn. With the choice between helping the cops and certain slaughter, Alex steps in to save the day. This fateful act introduces him to two detectives -- Kai Mendoza and Ernesto Alamares: one, beautiful and by the book, the other, more welcoming and easygoing. Unfortunately, Alex is now also firmly on the radar of the Chief of Police, Ike Ocampo, who would like nothing more than to have Alex working for him. Somehow, the world of dangerous people and deadly situations has followed Alex to his refuge. Despite his best efforts to begin a tranquil new life, he's pulled back into a world of dangerous people and deadly situations, either through his friends in the local police department or running into people from his old life. And the problem is: he likes it.
