Set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws, 'Watchmen', from executive producer Damon Lindelof (The Leftovers, Lost), embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking DC graphic novel while breaking new ground of its own. Angela Abar is a woman of many masks. She's a seasoned detective in the Tulsa, Oklahoma, police force, where officers must conceal their identities to protect themselves from terrorists. While investigating a murder close to home, Angela uncovers a far-reaching conspiracy that threatens the future of the world. Regina King leads a formidable cast that includes Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Jean Smart and Tim Blake Nelson. Brimming with cutting-edge style, dark humour and outrageous action, these nine episodes follow all-too-human ''superheroes" forced to grapple with an increasingly blurry line between good and evil. Ticktock, ticktock.
