The show is based on the bestselling novel by Robert Harris and follows Dr. Alex Hoffman who is launching an AI-driven system that exploits fear in the financial markets, and promises to make billions. But Alex’s sanity is shaken when he’s viciously attacked by a man who knows all his security codes. After more unexplained occurrences, Alex becomes convinced he’s being framed. But as secrets surface from his past, will anyone believe that he isn’t just losing his mind?
