Synopsis: In sun-kissed Emerald Bay, the vigorous Lieutenant Mitch Buchannon and Baywatch, his elite team of hand-picked and perfectly tanned lifeguards, protect the bay, keeping both sunbathers and beach lovers safe. However, this summer, two new eager trainees will join the demanding life-saving program, as well as an insubordinate former Olympic swimmer, who are all called to prove their worth on the lifeguard towers just on time when a new synthetic street drug begins to infest the Emerald Bay: the flakka. Without a doubt, this calls for some serious undercover teamwork action, as the badgeless heroes in spandex comb the beach for shady newcomers and nefarious entrepreneurs with hidden agendas of their own. Can Mitch's band save the bay?

Why don't you put

a baby in me?


You know, honestly...

I was thinking

dinner first.

But we could try

the baby thing,

if you want.

You are trying.

Way too hard.

Trying's the best part.



I was hoping

we'd see you here.

I couldn't sleep

last night.

I am so excited.

Hey, it's your day

today, summer.

Oh, thank you.

You're welcome.

Hey, fresh face.

You here for

the qualifiers?

Uh, no, no,

I'm not trying out.

I'm actually

already on the team.

You're already

on this team?

I'm Matt Brody.

Ready for duty.

"Ready for duty"?

Oh, okay.

Um, you got any papers

or anything like that?

I do. There you go.

Oh, it's a permission slip.

Literally. "Dear Mitch,

"i am pleased

to write you on behalf

of Mr. Matt Brody."

Right. Well,

no free passes.

Yeah. Whoa.

At all. Yeah, 'cause

i don't give a sh*t.

I legit needed those

for my taxes.

What you need is to

understand that if you're

going to be on this team,

you got to earn it.


Yeah. So, why don't

we start this

whole thing over,

just like gentlemen?

Where you from,

one direction?

Um... Iowa?


You heard of it?


i know what it is.

Hey, Steph.


New kids on the block

here is from Iowa.

Oh, man.

And, uh, he says

he's already on the team.


Doesn't have

to try out.


Yeah, absolutely.

Let me ask you this...

A lot of oceans in Iowa?

No, just ponds and lakes

and cocky pretty boys,



Cocky pretty boys.

Hey, Mitch,

what happened to that

last pretty boy recruit

we had?

He died.


Are you guys being

serious right now?

I honestly can't tell.

You show up here,

matching bathing suits.

What is this,

"lifeguard hazing"?

I'm Matt Brody.

I hold the world record

in the 200 meter.

Two gold medals.
