These daring recruits will find, however, that their newfound abilities come at no small cost. As Chase leaves behind his life as a fighter pilot to become the first candidate for the program, he finds his endurance, as well as his very identity, will be tested beyond anything he ever imagined.

Outlier Productions, Jordan’s production company, will co-produce the series along with Rooster Teeth. gen:LOCK will premiere exclusively on Rooster Teeth’s streaming service available at and on Xbox One, Apple TV, iOS and Android apps with memberships starting at $4.99 a month.
