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?

Have a good run, Mitch.

All right, Steph.

How's it looking out there?

Lippers are feebs today.

Just eggy.

Ah, eggy beyond, brah.

Nuggin' higher outside

than a full-on gazebo.

Good call, brah.

Come on.

All right, brah-brah!

It's just brah.

Come on, Pete.

Hey, Mitch!

I told you,

you don't have to

do this every day.

I want to. You saved

my sister's life.

You think I'm gonna

forget that?

All right. Well, listen,

tomorrow make my pecs

a little bigger.

And don't cover up

my front bump.

You got it.

Huge dick.

Big dick.

Yo, ellerbee.

Hey, Mitch.

Hey, come on, man,

why don't you leave

my boys alone,

and get off this big wheel

and come join me for a run?

What are you saying,

that I need to work out?

That I'm, what,

looking smaller?

No! You're looking big.

I don't know how you

fit in that uniform, man.

Oh, yeah?

Hey, hey!

If I had a sister,

I'd introduce you

to her, man.

You all right,

all right.

Wait, was that sarcastic?

Like calling

a tall guy "shorty"?

Damn it,

he always does that to me.

I heard he invented Google

and gave it all to charity.

Man, I heard

he invented the cure

for the common cold.

He ain't superman, he's

a damn county lifeguard.

Grown man wears

spandex to work.

So does superman.

Hey, f*** you!

Get off my beach!

I don't even have to

stretch to guard you.

Let's go.

Nothing, nothing,


Ahh! Not on

my beach, Arian!

What up, vern?

What's up, Mitch?

He saved my Nana's life.

I ever tell you about that?

Every time he jogs by.


every single time.

Hi, Mitch.

Flakka. Jesus.

Hey, what's up, buddy?

Hey, Mitch.

Hey, can I see that?


Where'd you get this?

Right there.

Right there, huh?

Is this the only one?

All right.

Okay, I get that you

have to test for

image stabilization,

but why'd we have to

come to the beach?

You know

i hate the beach.

Besides, I got to get back

to work at the Huntley.

Well, I'm sorry, man,

but the beach is important,

okay? It's, uh...

It's, you know,

the wind and the, uh...



I get it.

I get it now,

okay. I get it.

Who... what, c.J.?

No, I didn't even know

she was working

on the beach today.

"I didn't know c.J.

Was working."

Shut up, Dave.

Hey, Ronnie.


It's Ronnie, right?

What the f***?

Yeah, it's Ronnie.

I'm Dave.

Hi, Dave.

Nice to meet you.

C.J. How you doing?

I'm doing all right.

You're trying out today,


I saw your name

on the board.

That's how I...


Say something.

Kinda feel like

this is your year.

Stop that.

Okay. Um...

Well, I'll see you

at tryouts.


All right, c.J.

That was amazing

to watch.

She came up to you,

she was

very nice and warm.

And you handled it

really smoothly.


F***, no.

That was awkward.

It was horrible.


Did you have a stroke?

It felt

like you had a stroke.

Hey, I'm Matt Brody.

And not a single f***

was given.


Hey, Ronnie.

Oh, hey, Steph.

Welcome back.


Third time's

a charm, right?

Yeah, yeah,

you know, I'm...


I'm more motivated

than ever.

So you're going

to make me

guess your name?

Are you following me?

I was actually just

going to ask you

the same thing.

Okay. Look, you're hot.

I may resist for a while,

but we both know

eventually I'll give in.

So why don't

we just skip that.
