AXN never disappoints when it comes to heart-thumping action-packed shows. This month, the action channel is bringing you two new shows to write home about: Leverage and The Beast. In conjunction with the release of these new shows, AXN is giving you the chance to win some sweet prizes by answering some simple questions.
Former superstar insurance investigator Nate Ford (Timothy Hutton) had recovered millions for his former employer. Then his son got sick, and his own company wouldn’t pay the medical bills. Now his son is dead, his marriage is over and Ford’s a drunk.
He’s boozing at a bar when aeronautics company exec Victor Dubenich (Saul Rubinek) offers him a job: Steal back an airplane design that was stolen by a rival company, a company that is insured by Ford’s former employer.
With vengeance on his mind, Ford accepts the job and puts together a team of scam artists and thieves who all have their own talents.
After their first adventure (The Nigerian Job) the team decides to take on one more job, and then another, for 13 episodes. They’ll steal from those who’ve cheated others and help those who can’t defend themselves.
Starts 12 May, Every Tuesday, 11pm
Starring three-time Golden Globe Nominee Patrick Swayze.
Though considered by many – including rookie partner agent Ellis Dove (Travis Fimmel) – to be the best in the business, FBI undercover operative Charles Barker (Patrick Swayze) has a style that is nothing if not unorthodox. In pushing Dove to immerse himself more deeply into the characters they create, Barker makes it clear how the stresses and dangers of working undercover make normal relationships impossible.
As Dove is pressured to become an informant for an FBI investigation of partner, who’s suspected of going rogue, Barker launches his own investigation into a conspiracy within the Bureau that’s protecting a secret cadre of agents operating outside the law.
