Updated: Nine has amended the premiere date, to now begin with a 1 hr ‘Sneak Peek’ 8:30pm Sunday Jan 18.
Nine’s new Canadian-based action drama, which has received good buzz in the US, begins next month.
Flashpoint follows an elite metropolitan police force called the Strategic Response Unit (SRU) which resolves extreme situations including hostage taking, bomb threats and heavily armed criminals. Even though they’re backed with high-tech equipment with an arsenal of explosives, tasers, submachine guns, assault and sniper rifles, the SRU operators use their intuition to voice their judgements to resolve the situation.
Sounds like a good pre-cursor to Sea Patrol then Rescue Squad.
