Reef Break, a new crime drama series which premiered on ABC on Thursday, follows Cat Chambers, formerly a notorious thief and smuggler, who returns to Nimitz Bay in the fictional Pacific U.S. territory of Reef Island after five years to testify against the man who tried to murder her.
She ends up hired as a fixer by Ana DuMont (Melissa Bonne), the governor of the Island.
In the pilot of the series, the impulsive, reckless, but attractive Cat Chambers, played by Poppy Montgomery (Without A Trace, Unforgettable), is tasked with finding the kidnapped daughter of a wealthy resident of the island.
Paired with Detective Wyatt Cole (Desmond Chaim), Cat, guided by her instincts and insight into the criminal mind — given her background as a thief and smuggler — becomes involved in a fast-paced adventure on the sun-drenched Pacific island, alive with surf, sex, and crime.
The adventure brings old friends, enemies, and her ex-husband, FBI agent Ray Stevenson (Jake Elliot), back into her life.
