Debris is a new science fiction television series aired on NBC from the creator J.H Wyman. The show takes place in a world where a strange alien powered debris from a destroyed alien spaceship, which either possesses anomalous abilities or is dangerous to mankind, falls to earth, and various countries of the world send their specialists to search and secure it. The series explores the concept of what happens when this delicate balance is disturbed, and this cosmic debris wreaks havoc on earth. The show stars Jonathan Tucker as the brash, yet focused CIA agent, Bryan Beneventi, who is determined to unravel the mysteries surrounding Debris. He is joined in his mission by MI6 agent Finola Jones (played by Riann Steele), a rule-following and determined detective who seeks the truth behind the debris. In the show, Bryan and Finola must navigate the complicated and unpredictable nature of the futuristic technology that surrounds them. Together, the duo traverses the globe, encountering different people who have been affected by the debris in different ways, and trying to get answers from those who are in the know regarding the cosmic debris. As they work together, the two develop a strong relationship and form a bond, even as they face increasingly dangerous and mysterious situations. Additionally, the show features an impressive supporting cast, with Norbert Leo Butz playing Craig Maddox, the former man in charge of the debris program who is now outside the loop, but has insight into the mystery of the debris. The series presents each episode as a one-hour long event that blends science fiction with action and suspense, promising viewers that they will experience something unique and innovative. The show's creator, J.H Wyman, has previously praised the series in interviews for its heightened sense of reality and grounded, science-based concepts. While Debris is inspired by classic science fiction movies such as "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and "Blade Runner," it also draws significantly from popular supernatural-genre television, such as "Fringe" and "The X-Files." Over the course of its opening season, Debris promises to explore thought-provoking concepts of science, technology, and the human experience in ways that are both thrilling and eerie. Debris's debut season takes a serialized approach to the story, with each episode building on the last, slowly unraveling the mystery of the debris and what it might mean for humanity. The show promises to leave viewers feeling on the edge of their seats with suspense as they try to unravel the ever-tightening web of mystery surrounding the cosmic debris, Bryan and Finola, and their quest to keep humankind safe. Overall, Debris is a unique blend of science fiction, action, and mystery, told through a compelling story with nuanced characters and a cinematic quality that will keep viewers coming back for more. The series stands out among other science fiction dramas on television with its strong emphasis on human emotions and the human condition, placing characters at the forefront of its story while never losing sight of its high-minded concepts.
