A New A&E Series, The Beast, Premieres Tomorrow

The Beast starring Patrick Swayze premieres tomorrow, Thursday January 15th, on A&E (10 PM ET). According to the promotional material provided by the network, the series centers an unorthodox but effective FBI veteran, Charles Barker (Swayze), who takes on a rookie partner, Ellis Dove (played by Travis Fimmel). Barker trains Dove in a hard-edged, psychologically driven approach towards undercover work, where a moment's hesitation can lead to death.

In the premiere episode of The Beast, the mischievous Barker hazes Dove as they go undercover on their first case to infiltrate a weapons smuggling ring. Barker brilliantly manipulates situations, constantly tests his new partner's abilities and pushes him to delve deeper into the roles of the undercover characters he creates. Although Dove takes a liking to Barker, the new job takes its toll on him. The stress and danger of being an agent quickly makes him realize that he can no longer maintain normal relationships outside of work. Yet that's not the worst of it. The rookie is confronted with a larger challenge: An FBI Internal Affairs team feels Barker may have gone rogue and they try to enlist Dove as a double-agent in the bureau's investigation of his mentor.

The first 10 minutes of the episode is available online at the A& website. And while you're on the site, enter The Beast sweepstakes for a chance to win instant cash prizes and be entered for a grand prize trip for two to the set of the series and a chance for a walk-on role in an upcoming episode.
