THE ANGELS

THE ANGELS
By Connor McAulay

GENRE: Action, Drama
LOGLINE:

A fired EMT looking to atone for a fatal mistake is offered another opportunity to save lives when she joins an illegal ambulance for criminals.

SYNOPSIS:

“The Angels” is “9-1-1” meets “Breaking Bad” in an exciting new twist on the television medical drama. In the pilot, CLAIRE HILL, a talented and driven paramedic looking to atone for past mistakes is let go from her job for theft. The arrival of her estranged, ex-con brother, KEVIN brings further stress to Claire’s life when he reveals he has started driving for a secretive organization that happens to be looking for a paramedic to join their ranks. With little other choice, Claire agrees to give it a shot. Across the city, in one of L.A's poorest and most violent neighbourhoods, ANTON BAKER, a young medical student adjusts to life back home after losing his scholarship. One night after stumbling on the aftermath of a gang shooting, Anton witnesses The Angels at work and tracks them down, only to face the most high-stakes job interview of his life. Night after night, The Angels work the streets of L.A. in a fleet of black panel vans; saving as many lives as they can while trying to stay out of the crossfire themselves. All the while, the crew are pursued by the ravenous DETECTIVE ELLEN BARZO, who finds herself closer than ever to unravelling the secret behind the elusive ambulance service.

With universal healthcare dominating American headlines, “The Angels” is a timely exploration of what it means to be poor and desperate in a place where seconds and dollars can mean the difference between life and death. “The Angels” delivers an exhilarating medical crime crossover with daring chases, heart pounding surgeries and enough intrigue to keep audiences talking for multiple seasons.
