A number of 12 episodes have been ordered by the network for season one of the hour-long drama series. Read the official synopsis below;
The city of Metropolis has always been a place of mystery and the bizarre, but has seen a lot more strange things over the last few years. In response to the growing number of vigilantes patrolling the streets, and the rising occurrences of criminals demonstrating beyond-the-norm abilities, Metropolis City Mayor Frank Berkowitz grudgingly authorised the formation of a new division, the Special Crimes Unit.
The Unit is now commanded by Captain Maggie Sawyer, a tough as nails woman who has walked the beat for many a year and developed a reputation as a person who knows how to gets things done, while being known for having a short temper when it comes to bureaucracy interfering with proper police work. Still very much in it's infancy, the Unit will encounter not just problems dealing with the cases that come across her desk, but also the usual friction between people when they first come together in a strange situation.
