The Passage follows Brad Wolgast (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), a federal agent who works for a secret government medical facility called Project Noah.
Project Noah scientists have discovered a virus that might be the cure for all illness. They work against the clock to deactivate the negative side of its power – the infected are turned into bloodsucking, clairvoyant, killing machines that the show calls virals – and decide after random unsuccessful tests that a child will be the perfect test subject.
Someone who won’t be missed by family or friends.
Wolgast is charged with bringing in a young orphan named Amy (Saniyya Sidney). His instincts tell him not to do it.
Brad’s attempts to protect Amy cause him go rogue, just as Project Noah is poised to bring about an apocalypse as Amy highlights in her voice-over during the first episode.
Based on Justin Cronin’s trilogy Passages but is very different that the books.
