Inspired by a true story, Scorpion is a high-octane drama about an eccentric genius, Walter O’Brien (Elyes Gabel), and his team of brilliant misfits who comprise the last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats of the modern age.

Happy Quinn (Jadyn Wong), a mechanical prodigy, and Sylvester Dodd (Ari Stidham), a statistics guru. Pooling their extensive technological knowledge to solve mind-boggling predicaments amazes everyone, including federal agent Cabe Gallo (Robert Patrick), who shares a harrowing history with O’Brien. However, while this socially awkward group is comfortable with each other’s humour and quirks, life outside their circle confounds them, so they must rely on Paige Dineen (Katharine McPhee, Smash), who has a young, gifted son, to translate the world for them.
