What happens when real talk gets a little too real?
This character-driven saga puts the Office of the Sheriff, known as the Agency, in the crosshairs as Hands Across the Sea delves behind the badge during the transition of their longtime sheriff, Garrison Cottrell, who abruptly retires and passes the torch to his unexpected, hand-picked successor, Commander Brendan Callaghan.
Witness how the Command staffer’s leadership styles, where the rubber meets the road, expose their personal and professional “isms” during kaleidoscopic situations. Gear up for what happens when the door shuts and the dialogue begins – and sometimes, not in that order, especially when the Office of the Sheriff takes on the guise of Peyton Place with handcuffs.
