Rubicon is a television show in which, the main character is an intelligence analyst, who suspects he may be working with people who belong to a secret society. He thinks it is a powerful group that manipulates world events. The organization he works for is the American Policy Institute, and they are responsible for gathering information on terrorists and terrorist plots. They share this information with the appropriate agencies. Will Travers is the analyst who was hired to replace a man who has left mysterious clues as to the circumstances of his death. Will's wife and daughter were killed on Sept 11, 2001; this tragedy has left him believing in conspiracy theories. He sees evidence of messages hidden in crossword puzzles, and newspapers published on the same day. Will confided to David Hadas, who was his boss, and father-in-law, about his concerns. David told Will he shouldn't worry about a conspiracy, but he reported it to his superior. Soon after this, David was killed in a suspicious commuter rail accident, and the company offered his job to Will Travers. Will suspects that David was assassinated, and that he was hired so that the company could keep an eye on him. Will continues to try to discover the conspiracy which he discovered in the crossword puzzles, fearing that it threatens the security of the country. Some of the other people in the company also suspect conspiracies; others are assigned to work with Will to inform on his activities. One of his co-workers is trying to find the reasons for her husband's suicide. She found clues leading her to the agency being involved in his death, but even his best friend betrayed her. The show follows the activities of these characters as they each try to work on their own agendas. Jason Horwitch created the show, and directed the pilot but left, and Henry Bromell was promoted to run the show.
