LOGLINE: This gritty, unflinching dramatic series examines stories unfolding on both sides of the border, as ordinary citizens, law enforcement personnel, criminals and members of the military go about their lives.


The Mexican-U.S. border is an ephemeral line, drawn somewhat at random. Against this backdrop, the series follows eight main characters, four on each side of the border, most of them in law enforcement or government, some of them trying to build a better society, some of them corrupt. The supporting characters come from Mexican, American, and other cultures -- drug dealers, students, Marxists, nuns, priests, cowboys, soldiers, miners, and poets. The series offers a wide variety of stories that evolve over multiple episodes and that show people’s lives and conflicts along the border do not center on drug smuggling. The setting provides a vibrant backdrop to the stories, both scenic and full of odd characters. On the U.S. side, Cochise County, Arizona contains Bisbee, Tombstone, Douglas, Fort Huachuca, Sierra Vista, and the Huachuca Mountains. On the Mexican side the terrain south of the border is also very scenic and open, much like it is just north of the border. We will have stories in Hermosillo, Agua Prieta, Nogales, and Ciudad Juarez. The setting - 50% in Mexico - and the use of tracking and other technologies along the border differentiate the show from anything else on television. We keep the viewer informed via explanation within the narrative of techniques and technology from experienced law enforcement to less experienced officers. The creators of the show both have experience in tracking, law enforcement, military operations, and Mexican culture. We will show the Mexican perspective.
