Synopsis

The Unit is a covert team of U.S. Special Forces operatives who carry out extremely dangerous missions, from political assassinations to rescuing hostages, for the Army and the government. Counterterrorism is their specialty. The explosive drama is as unflinching in its depiction of war and its startling impact on the home front as one would expect from gritty playwright David Mamet (Glengarry Glen Ross, Speed-the-Plow), who created the series, based on Inside Delta Force written by retired Special Ops officer Eric Haney. But the series isn't all action-adventure. The Unit carefully balances its global life-and-death missions with absorbing accounts of life at home, where wives deal daily with uncertainty and loneliness, unable to tell anyone about their involvement in the highly secretive group. Col. Tom Ryan (Robert Patrick) is the Unit's commander and Sgt. Major Jonas Blane (Dennis Haysbert) heads up the five-man squad entrusted with carrying out the assignments in the field. Adding to the complexity of the first season is Ryan's affair with Tiffy Gerhardt (Abby Brammell), the wife of burnt-out veteran Mack Gerhardt (Max Martini), who is under Ryan's command. Also, new recruit Bob Brown (Scott Foley), an accomplished sharpshooter and ace pilot, quickly adjusts to life in the Unit, but his opinionated wife Kim (Audrey Marie Anderson) struggles with her restricted life on base and bucks the Army's authority. It's up to Jonas' resourceful wife Molly (Regina Taylor) to bring Kim under control. But Molly, usually levelheaded, needs help, too, when she risks her life savings in a lucrative real-estate investment. As for the Unit members, their first-season exploits include capturing a terrorist in Africa, rescuing missionaries in Indonesia, assassinating a defense minister in Afghanistan, capturing a war criminal in Siberia, and bringing down a drug lord in Brazil. ~ Tim Holland
