The first episode will introduce us to the characters. We’ll meet Ellis, a demoted detective who is ready to give his career the boost it needs. When he arrests Max, a conwoman who isn’t afraid to scam anyone she meets, he realizes an opportunity to help the two of them.

Max can use her knowledge of the life of crime to solve local crimes. Ellis will help to keep her out of jail as long as she goes along with it. How afraid of jail is she to work with the detective? Of course, Ellis needs to put his trust in a woman who has proven to scam people. Is he the one being scammed now?

We’ll get to see how the two end up working together. This is a chance to see if their chemistry works for them to end up as partners in crime trying to keep the world safer one criminal at a time.
