The Brink is a supernatural Detective thriller that plays with our perceptions of reality through gritty themes and twists. It features two police detectives who investigate cases of a terrifying nature in London, UK.

Detective Inspector Sally Shivers heads up the Fringe Services Division (FSD), a unique investigative unit that was set up by the Ministry of Defense (MoD) following an official independent review into the way police carry out investigations into certain crimes. The report identified police failings in cases of an unexplainable or abnormal nature.

Detective Sergeant Cameron Beckett is hand-picked by the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police to work with DI Shivers. DS Beckett has been briefed to challenge Shivers and demystify the cases they deal with. These cases are known as Brink cases.

How will DI Sally Shivers deal with the pressures from a boss looking for an excuse to shut the unit down and her new inquisitive straight-laced partner? How will DS Cameron Beckett maintain objectivity and carry out the orders of the Commissioner as he witnesses otherworldly events?
