In an alternative future where Scotland has gained independence, vampires, werewolves and zombies begin to come out of the shadows declaring their desire to join the human race; the Prime Minister agrees to sign a treaty and assembles a special unit within the police to protect both mankind and creature. Eve Mitchell is drafted in from Texas to lead the Paranormal Investigation Team Scotland; recruiting the best members that time has afforded her.
The PITS team is made up of Texan Eve Mitchell, weapons export Jack Stone, negotiator and researcher, Alia Carmichael, and the new recruit, Tom Middleton, straight-laced and to the point. Charged with policing any crimes and incidents between the supernaturals and humans, the team find themselves up against daily struggles both personally and professionally.
