Expect the Unexpected.
In the year 2012, all that you know will come to an end! In the streets of Los Angeles, all hell has broken loose, after a portal ripped through the atmosphere releasing Ancient Gods of their time, into our world. Intent on reclaiming the above ground, they unleash their demonic legions of darkness from the mystical chambers they were bound to, and now, they begin to wreak havoc throughout the streets of the doomed Los Angeles! Surviving the first wave of hell, Samuel Andrews, one of the city's respected officers of the LAPD, finds himself leading a team of survivors into a safe haven; but with all the technology at hand, do they have enough to stop the Ancient Gods, and their army of chaos?
(portrayed by Ben McKenzie)
For years now, Samuel Andrews had been a well-respected officer of the law; stopping more crime, and theft than any other police officer on the force. He's always been quite fearless, driving down any alley, chasing after any criminal, and when signs of the end begin to surface, he still manages to keep a clear mind of things. Surviving the uprising of the Ancient Gods' demonic Legions of Darkness, Samuel finds himself facing the very thing that makes him shiver to the core. The fearless officer, becomes the frightened warrior! Still, doing everything in his power to stop these beasts from reclaiming their world, can he really save all of humanity before it is extinct?
(portrayed by Alexa Davalos)
Her theft days are over! Also being one of the survivors, Charlie Thompson is not the damsel in distress, in fact very much the determined warrior. Her "kill or be killed" attitude can lead her into more trouble than she bargains for, but she's always in for a good rough and tumble with the forces of darkness. Having a tough upbringing in Los Angeles, moving from foster parent to foster parent, her tragic past slowly becomes unveiled throughout several events that trigger some unwanted memories - and soon, her tough attitude will drop, and a different light will come to effect. Plus, when she discovers her father to be an ex-con, and living here in the city, how far will she go to find him? And will she ever, now that the city faces annihilation.
(portrayed by Fran Kranz)
All his life he'd dreamed of something like this happened! The world coming to an end. Monsters being unleashed just to be fought. Just like all the video games he's played. All the movies he's watched. But this is the real world. You don't get more than one life! Victor is the wacky, nerd-like computers genius of the group, who helps create the weapons, and track down any demonic creature within the four block radius. His campy attitude about the whole situation soon has a tragic turning point, that leaves him quite bitter towards the end, but all in all, he's a survivor. A warrior. A man with great potential. But how long will it take him to realize the fact that this isn't a movie; nor a game?!

Notes From Author:
I have a lot of stuff to say about this, so please read on. For starters, you're probably thinking a show like this, with everything already facing the end, with a three character cast won't last as long as most shows; but I have to disagree. I think that this could run for a while, at least longer than most would expect. More characters are introduced as it progresses, storylines become more intense, and several ideas have been floating in my head that believe this show has a lot of potential. It does center around those three charaters; but they aren't the only ones in it. The three of them are the ones who we see most of, throughout the course of the series, changing, evolving, learning more and more about these Ancient Gods of another time, and how to defeat them.
I have struggled with this pitch for about a month now. And originally, it was an action/spy/thriller show, about a man who fights a Los Angeles Government Agency that he once worked for. It was also going to be a supernatural show, where the main character had powers and used them to fight off the evil. But I think in the end, a show where unrealistic things happen, to a realistic world is more succesful - and overall is more believeable to the audience.
This will be a 13 episode series. Each season consisting of 13.
