(from ABC's press release, March 2015) Jacob Darlow has just transferred from Oxford to Braddock, an elite Ivy League University. He starts to ingratiate himself with the privileged students, professors, and alumni. Jacob has ambitions to become a member of Braddock's secret society, Skull and Key. Jacob strikes up a friendship with fellow rower and student, Max Walden. Max is definitely in the inner circle. His father, alumnus Adam Walden, is a Senator and considering a run for President. Max's mother is Helen, the perfect politician's wife. A member of Skull and Key, and someone Jacob should get close to, is Vivian Vandemeer. Her father, Simon Vandemeer, is the Dean at Braddock and her mother, Maeve, a professor. Maeve used to date Senator Walden back in the day. Vivian's fellow student and lover, Taylor Collins, is an assistant to the Dean. The two keep their affair secret, like so many things on this campus. Before Jacob came to Braddock, there was a murder of a freshman, scholarship student named Julia. The investigation into her death lead to Professor Radha Mittal (Parminder Nagra) who believes she was set up by Skull and Key to take the fall. Before being taken into custody, Radha contacted Julia's brother, Eli, to help her prove her innocence. Radha thinks that Julia lost her life because she found out something that would compromise the secret society. Radha cannot rely on the legal system or police to help her; Skull and Key is a powerful organization, not only on campus, but in the highest places across the country. She wants Eli to uncover the truth by going undercover at the school. Eli agrees to help and takes on the persona of the pedigreed Brit, Jacob Darlow, our new transfer student. As he infiltrates his way into the inner circles, he's poised and ready to expose whoever is responsible for the death of his sister. Written and exec produced by Sallie Patrick (Revenge).
