Series Synopsis

Created by screenwriter Christos N. Gage (Law & Order: SVU, Deadshot), PARADOX introduces homicide detective Sean Nault, a cop on a parallel Earth whose technology is powered exclusively by magic. Sean investigates a baffling series of murders committed by a means he's never seen before: the power of science. With the aid of Lenoir, a member of the ridiculed subculture of "pragmatists" who believe science is more than the stuff of myths and children's stories, and the 130 year old sorcerer Winston Churchill, Sean uncovers an apocalyptic plot that will lead him to another dimension, ours, and the realization that, unless he prevents it, both earths could well be destroyed.

Detective Nault is called in to investigate a strange murder. The victim was slain by the most unlikely of methods—a tiny capsule of metal propelled at high speed through his brain. The coroner is baffled when her examination shows no trace of magic anywhere around the wound or the metal. In an effort to examine all the possibilities, Detective Nault calls upon Sir Winston Churchill, the greatest wizard to ever live since Merlin. Nault discovers that there is a parallel world where science is the prime force of technology. It is a world where almost everyone has or has had a double and history has paralleled to a point. The scary thing is that perhaps someone from that world has come over, but Nault finds that no one believes him. Science is considered new age quackery and frowned upon in most of society. Even Sir Winston, who once saved Britain from the Nazi Blitz of England by finding and using the sword Excalibur, and advocated a study of science be taken seriously was ridiculed. Now there’s a killer on the loose and only a man unique to both worlds, a paradox, can use his intuitive knowledge to stop the killings and perhaps save a universe.
