          The Passage focuses on Project NOAH, a secret medical facility where scientists are experimenting with a dangerous virus that could lead to the cure for all disease, but also carries the potential to wipe out the human race. When a young girl, Amy Bellafonte (Saniyya Sidney, Fences, Hidden Figures), is chosen to be a test subject, Federal Agent Brad Wolgast (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Pitch) is the man who is tasked with bringing her to Project NOAH. Ultimately, however, Wolgast becomes her surrogate father, trying to protect her at any cost.

          Brad and Amy’s journey will force them to confront Project NOAH’s lead scientists, Major NicholeI Sykes (Caroline Chikezie, The Shannara Chronicles) and Dr. Jonas Lear (Henry Ian Cusick, Lost), as well as the hardened former Navy Operative Clark Richards (Vincent Piazza, Boardwalk Empire, Rescue Me), whom Brad trained. It likewise brings them face-to-face with a dangerous new race of beings confined within the walls of Project NOAH, including former scientist Tim Fanning (Jamie McShane, Bosch, Bloodline, Sons of Anarchy) and death-row inmates Shauna Babcock (Brianne Howey, The Exorcist) and Anthony Carter (McKinley Belcher III, Ozark, Mercy Street).
 

          In seeking out any allies he can find, Brad also turns to his former wife, Dr. Lila Kyle (Emmanuelle Chriqui, Entourage, Murder in the First), for help. But as Project NOAH’s scientists home in on a cure that could save humanity, these new beings begin to test their own powers, inching one step closer to an escape that could lead to an unimaginable apocalypse.
