In this sexy and suspenseful series from executive producer McG, and featuring international action star Maggie Q in the title role, Nikita has gone rogue. Division is an ultra-secret government agency whose operatives are recruited young people with severed ties to family, friends and society.
Trained to be invisible assassins, no one ever leaves Division - except the charming and deadly Nikita, who has managed to escape, making it her mission to undermine the now-corrupt organization. A force to be reckoned with, the rogue Nikita taunts Division, staying on their radar, but always one step ahead. Yet as determined as Nikita is to bring down her former agency, there are those just as determined to stop her, including Division's newest recruit Alex, a beautiful young woman who seems destined to replace Nikita as their next top operative.
01 - Pilot
As a troubled teenager, Nikita (series star MAGGIE Q) was rescued from death row by a secret U.S. agency known only as Division. There she was erased from society and trained to be a spy and assassin. After being betrayed by the only people she thought she could trust, Nikita escaped from Division. Now, after three years in hiding, the rogue Nikita is seeking retribution and is making it clear to her former boss, Percy (series star XANDER BERKELEY), and former friends and colleagues Michael (series star SHANE WEST) and Birkhoff (series star Aaron Stanford) that she will stop at nothing to expose and destroy their covert agency. Meanwhile, Division continues to recruit and train other young people who have been ostracized from society, among them Jaden (series star TIFFANY HINES) and Thom (series star ASHTON HOLMES), erasing all evidence of their former lives and turning them into cold and efficient killers. One of these new recruits, Alex (series star LYNDSY FONSECA) is a beautiful girl with a violent past and a story not so different from Nikita's. Reluctant to accept her new fate, Alex is given special attention by Amanda (series star MELINDA CLARKE), a master manipulator who can turn any ugly duckling into a swan and harden any bleeding heart into that of a killer.
