Plot Synopsis

Inspired by the New York Times Magazine article "Who Runs the Streets of New Orleans?," by David Amsden, APB is a one-hour drama series that centers on a billionaire engineer who takes charge of Chicago's troubled 13th District after witnessing his best friend's murder. As soon as he takes charge, he reboots the 13th District as a technically innovative police force, challenging it to rethink everything about the way they fight crime. Becoming the city's most advanced police district isn't easy. Gideon knows if he's going to change anything, he needs help, which he finds from Det. Theresa Murphy, an ambitious, street-smart cop who is willing to give Gideon's technological ideas a chance. With the help of Gideon's gifted tech officer, Ada Hamilton, he and Murphy embark on a mission to turn the 13th District -- including a skeptical Capt. Ned Conrad -- into a dedicated crime-fighting force of the 21st century. Early in the transition, Gideon accompanies Murphy on a ride-along to see the impact of his reforms, and they run into a pharmacy robbery that results in the injury of a child. Gideon vows to get involved and tests out a new drone, but after that fails, he is inspired by an unlikely source to create new electric motorcycles to help find the suspects. Meanwhile, Murphy is disturbed when she hears that someone close to her is the leader of a new project that could take down Gideon's plans for the 13th district.
