"Out on a Limb" - Special Crime police detective Mac Swift and his partner Randall paterson have a case to solve. The object is Jack Cantrell, a new age mobster into everything from extortion and drugs to prostitution and murder. In order to infiltrate Cantrell's organization, Swift poses as a mobster himself, then is drawn to Annie, a beautiful callgirl under Cantrell's control.
When attraction turns to love, and Annie learns of Swift's true identity, she inadvertently tells her best friend, who sells her out to Cantrell in order to save her own skin. After Cantrell kills Annie, then boasts about it to Swift, the detective kills Cantrell in self defense. Although the circumstances of the murder save Swift from criminal prosecution, he is bounced off of the force..but not out of crime fighting.
With the help of his former partner and his straight-arrow cop father, Swift will seek to bring to justice those who would slip through the loopholes of the law - all in the name of "Swift Justice," airing WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on UPN.
