‘Breaking In’ airs this August on AXN
A workplace comedy that takes office politics to the next level of genius
Breaking In is a workplace comedy with a twist about a security firm that takes extreme – and often questionable – measures to sell their services. Starting this August 9 at 9:05pm, hang out and laugh out loud with the Contra Security gang exclusively on AXN.
Created by Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon and Fanboys screenwriter Adam F. Goldberg, the series follows a group of uniquely skilled oddball geniuses who give clients a sense of security by first ripping it away.
Owing to his underground reputation as a master computer hacker, college student Cameron Price (Bret Harrison) is recruited by Contra Security, a high-tech firm run by the enigmatic mastermind Oz (Christian Slater). Though Cameron is happy to continue his college career, Oz and his oddball team – lock-picker extraordinaire Melanie (Odette Yustman), tech geek Cash Sparks (Alphonso McAuley), and master of disguise Josh Armstrong (Trevor Moore) – refuse to take “no” for an answer.
So when Oz threatens to expose his illicit computer pranks, Cameron suddenly finds himself butting heads with Josh as he and his new colleagues employ an arsenal of questionable tactics to test the “impenetrable” security systems of clients that include a luxury car dealer, a Hollywood movie studio and an art gallery. Guest stars include Ted McGinley and NASCAR’s Jimmie Johnson.
Breaking In premieres with back-to-back episodes on August 6, 9:05pm, first and exclusively on AXN.
