(aka "The Weight"
) follows a collection of cops, criminals and everybody in between as they intersect then fall with the rhythms of a combustible suburban wasteland. In this world there are no heroes or villains, only intimacy and the constant biting humour of what life deals its players. The series unfolds in the style of a visual novel, with interconnected layers continually revealing themselves and deepening the story.
At the centre of this world are Max and Donny, two cops as damaged as the criminals they pursue, men who have lost all interest in the conventions of police work. Max, played by Ron White ("Screamers", "Tag: The Jonathan Wamback Story")
is a subversive detective with his own agenda and a mildly sarcastic edge who happens to be cheating on his wife Karen (Yanna McIntosh, "This Is Wonderland"
). Daniel Kash ("Fugitive Pieces", "Cinderella Man"
) is Donny - slightly unhinged with a dark sense of humour and with many low-brow tastes. One of the many women in Donny's life is Carol, played by Linda Hamilton ("The Terminator", "Terminator 2: Judgment Day"
), a charming grifter who shows up on the run from some very dangerous men. (Source:
