All the most pessimistic predictions regarding the meeting of terrestrial and alien civilizations came true. The aliens – whom not everyone managed to see – wiped out the leaders of humanity, suppressed uprisings and divided cities into blocks in just a few days. Now, each district – the so-called colony – is deprived of communication with the others and is under the control of the military police “Redhats” consisting of collaborators.

The Bowman family, who live in one of these colonies, formerly the Los Angeles area, are at the center of the TV show’s plot. Will (Josh Holloway), the head of the family, is forced to work for “Redhats” while his wife is secretly collaborating with the “Resistance” (“Insurgency”) organization, which makes every effort to fight alien invaders.
