Kate Lockley, a former LAPD detective was relieved of duty a year ago due to her obsession with the paranormal happenings in Los Angeles. Stuck in pause, Kate decides that her place in this world is elsewhere, so she packs up and moves to Detroit, Michigan to continue her journey of self discovery, as well as deepen her studies of the supernatural, occult world. Discovering her new town is just as vampire, and demon infested as L.A., she starts her own fight against the forces of evil, which is where our story begins.
After three months of cleaning up the city, she is visited by a mysterious man named Casey Whittmore who claims he can help her in the fight. Taking her into a whole new world; Whittmore is the head of a Government-funded demon hunting organization called Legion, and Kate Lockley has just been offered a job. Reluctant at first, she soon gives in when she's told she would be able to head a team of fighters to assist in the battle with the forces of darkness.
Kate Lockley (Portrayed by Elisabeth Rohm) is a woman in charge. She always appears to be in control of any given situation, even if she's not. Her rough exterior, and take-no-mess attitude has earned her the nickname "Deadlock," and it suits her well. Kate has a softer side, which she doesn't show very often, but she is still very new to this world, and she may find that her confidence in her ability is gravely misplaced.
Groo (Portrayed by Mark Lutz) is a half-demon, half-human warrior from the dimension Pylea. A living parallel of Kate, as Groo is no stranger to demon hunting, but the physical world is still very new to him, though he has been here for about one year. Groo is brave, but his ignorance to Earth's customs make him very vulnerable.
Allison Shapiro (Portrayed by Grace Park) is an MIT graduate, who is recruited by Kate due to her expertise in technology and advanced weaponry. Allison never seems to take her job seriously, and often goes against her superiors just for the hell of it, but her brain is priceless, and Legion will need people like her if they're looking to be on the winning side of the endless battle between good and evil.
Casey Whittmore (Portrayed Harry Lennix) is the man the government put in charge to run the Legion project. Not much is known about his past, but everyone knows that he means business. He's a military man, trained to go by the code, but underneath it all, there's a slight touch of a renegade.

I know what you're thinking... "Chris... no! Not another pitch." Geez, calm down. HAHA! This idea has literally been in my head since about 2008. If I were to ever attempt to touch the Buffy/Angelverse, this is where I would start. Kate Lockley was one of my favorite characters during her time on Angel, and I feel her character was just vanished, and never got the chance to explore her true potential.
If this show were to ever be developed, I think "Deadlock" would have a very human quality to it. Not only because the show would not be following a slayer, or vampire, but a regular person, but because the storylines would be deeply rooted in human problems, rather than demonic ones. There may be just as many episodes focused on fighting a new big bad demon, as they are episodes focused more on what's happening inside the Legion organization, and problems faced from within that new, questionable environment.
People that know me know that every story I tell is a mystery, no matter what the source material may be, so you can expect that this place is not what it seems, and our journey toward discovering how good or evil it is, will be full of twists that'll make your head spin. Just talking about it makes me want to write it. HAHA! But in reality, this project will probably remain here, in the "Undeveloped" section. But who knows...
