DEVELOPMENT STAGE: ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release) Against the most desperate and dangerous of armed criminals there's only one team you can trust. Special Weapons And Tactics. These heroes of urban combat rescue hostages, arrest violent suspects, take down terrorists, and defuse explosive situations. All while racing against the clock. But when the job gets too hot for S.W.A.T., they call upon the unorthodox genius of Danny Taylor, a former member of the bomb squad. Stress and pressure bring out the best in him. He is what bad guys fear: a man with nothing to lose. Graham Yost brings the same ticking clock approach he used in Speed to create a nail-biting pulse-pounding thrill ride with the world's premiere police tactical unit. Each week we enter a high-stakes crisis in its final hour and see.
