Watch Class of '09 stream: preview

Combing crime drama with AI-themed futurism, Class of '09 is a new suspense thriller that offers up a dystopian window into the future of law enforcement.

Starring Oscar nominee Brian Tyree Henry and House of Cards' Kata Mara, the pair play two bright FBI recruits, with the show charting their slide into becoming battled-hardened, cynical veterans through periodic flashbacks.

Henry takes the role of Tayo, an unorthodox agent, and Kate Mara stars as Poet, who specialises in going undercover with the pair initially committed to Bureau's mantra of a "devotion to the pursuit of truth and knowledge". 

As the show develops the two characters are forced to confront a world where that truth has become difficult to discern, presenting situations where they may have to compromise those values to adapt in the fight against crime.

Shining a timely light on artificial intelligence's potential impact on the justice system, the series is created and executive produced by Tom Rob Smith, the creator of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.
