“…diverse casting, timely premise, and nonstop action.”

“S.W.A.T.'s attention to these sometimes overlooked perspectives added a new dimension to this type of story. … In the age of Peak TV, it's encouraging to see shows use their power and platform to advocate for real change in the world we live in. S.W.A.T. delivered with "School," and it should be considered important viewing.”

— TV Guide

“S.W.A.T. strove to offer new perspectives that we haven't seen when depicting these tragic events.”

Inspired by the television series and the feature film, S.W.A.T. stars Shemar Moore as a locally born and raised SWAT sergeant newly tasked to run a specialized tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles. Torn between loyalty to where he was raised and allegiance to his brothers in blue, former “Marine Daniel ‘Hondo’ Harrelson” has everything it takes to be an excellent leader and bridge the divide between his two worlds. Hondo's elite unit includes “David ‘Deacon’ Kay,” an experienced SWAT officer who always puts the team first, despite feeling overlooked for the lead job; “Christina ‘Chris’ Alonso,” a skilled officer and the team's canine trainer; “Dominique Luca,” an expert driver who gets them in and out of high risk situations; “Victor Tan,” who started in the LAPD Hollywood Division and uses his confidential informants in the community to help the team; and “Jim Street,” a cocky and promising new team member who is fired when his troubled family life leads him to compromise his role within the unit. Responsible for the management of all Metro Division SWAT units is “Commander Robert Hicks,” a senior LAPD official with the Special Operations Bureau. Overseeing Hondo's team is Hicks' direct report, “Jessica Cortez,” the ambitious captain of L.A. Metro whose professional aspirations force her to end an off-the-books relationship with Hondo. Hondo's team enjoys an intense rivalry with another L.A.-based unit led by “Mumford,” an aggressive leader who likes to do things his way. With Hondo leading the charge, these dedicated men and women bravely put themselves at risk to protect their community and save lives.
