‘APB’ Episode Guide (Feb. 27): Officer Brandt Sent on an Undercover Assignment

“Signal Loss” (02/27/17) – After armor-piercing bullets are found on the black market, the team decides to send Officer Brandt on an undercover mission to catch the criminals selling them. But when the mission goes awry, the squad utilizes a high-tech jacket to help track down Brandt and bring him back to safety.

Meanwhile, a task force led by Murphy’s ex-husband threatens Gideon’s future in an all-new episode of “APB” airing Monday, Feb. 27 (9:01-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Guest starring in this episode are Daniel MacPherson as Scott Murphy, Abraham Benrubi as Pete McCann, Bryant Romo as Officer Jimmy Reyes, William Smillie as Officer Cobb, Joseph Kamal as Jay Galker, Tim Griffin as Issac Hunter and Billy Lush as Tico.

Inspired by the New York Times Magazine article “Who Runs the Streets of New Orleans?,” by David Amsden, “APB” is a new police drama with a high-tech twist from executive producer/director Len Wiseman (“Lucifer,” “Sleepy Hollow”) and executive producers and writers Matt Nix (“Burn Notice”) and Trey Callaway (“The Messengers”).

Sky-high crime, officer-involved shootings, cover-ups and corruption: the over-extended and under-funded Chicago Police Department is spiraling out of control. Enter billionaire engineer Gideon Reeves (Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Justin Kirk, “Tyrant,” “Weeds”). After he witnesses his best friend’s murder, he takes charge of Chicago’s troubled 13th District and reboots it as a technically innovative police force, challenging the district to rethink everything about the way they fight crime.

Becoming the city’s most advanced police district isn’t easy. Gideon knows if he’s going to change anything, he needs help, which he finds from Detective Theresa Murphy (Natalie Martinez, “Kingdom,” “Under the Dome”), an ambitious, street-smart cop who is willing to give Gideon’s technological ideas a chance.

With the help of Gideon’s gifted tech officer, ADA Hamilton (Caitlin Stasey, “Reign”), he and Murphy embark on a mission to turn the 13th District – including a skeptical Capt. Ned Conrad (Ernie Hudson, “Grace and Frankie,” “Ghostbusters”) and determined Officers Nicholas Brandt (Taylor Handley, “Vegas,” “Southland”) and Tasha Goss (Tamberla Perry, “Boss”) – into a dedicated crime-fighting force of the 21st century.

“APB” is a production of 20th Century Fox Television. Len Wiseman, Matt Nix, Trey Callaway, Todd Hoffman (“The Confirmation”), Dennis Kim and Robert Friedman (“The Confirmation,” “Spring Broke,” “Give”) serve as executive producers. Wiseman also served as director of the pilot.
