Gridlocked

Synopsis: Former SWAT leader David Hendrix is down on his luck and has failed to receive medical clearance after taking a bullet on the job. Despite being highly trained and competent, his efforts have been reduced to routine tasks for the NYPD. As if things couldn't get any worse, he's been forced to babysit Brody Walker, a hard partying celebrity that's been sent on a mandatory ride along as part of his probation. Pampered and irritating, Walker is the last thing Hendrix needs. But all of that changes when a police training facility comes under attack by a team of ruthless mercenaries led by the mysterious Korver. Now, Hendrix and Walker must band together with the remaining survivors to fight back and keep the mercenaries from overtaking the compound.... if they don't kill each other first.

(alarm sounds)

Newsreader:
Tensions are mounting

as some of the protesters

have already started gathering

here in New York City

across the street from

the United Nations,

where it was just announced

that the Israeli Prime Minister

would address

the assembly later this month.

Mare on that to come.

But first, let's go to Danielle.

And in entertainment news,

actor Brody Walker

is making headlines after a video

leaked online earlier this week.

The footage shows

an intoxicated Walker

attempting to drive himself home

after leaving a nightclub.

When a paparazzo confronted him,

Walker assaulted the man.

- Paparazzo:
You doing all right tonight?

- I'm always good, bro.

Paparazzo:

Yeah, you gonna drive, dude?

I'm a big boy.

I can figure I! out.

Paparazzo:
Got some DUls last month.

You sure you want number three?

- you, dude.

- Paparazzo:
Come on, man.

Don't get in that car.

You gonna be

drunk on set tomorrow, Brody?

- What did you say?

- Paparazzo:
Too many DUls, man.

- Too many DUls?

- Paparazzo:
No, you're good. Hey!

A former child star, Walker's films

have collectively grossed

over half a billion dollars.

But sources say his run-ins with the

law and his purported substance abuse

have left those around him worried.

This doesn't fare well for Walker

who just landed a major role

in an upcoming franchise

that starts shooting later this...

Marty, it's not as bad as it looks.

Oh, really? Because it looks

pretty fucking bad to me.

I've been on the phone

all morning with the studio.

They're getting cold feet.

You said it was a done deal.

This is Hollywood.

It's never a done deal.

Do you have any idea the kind of

hoops that I had to jump through

just to get you fucking insured

on this thing?

Brody, this is serious.

Do you understand that?

- They want to press charges.

- I barely even pushed the guy.

It doesn't make a difference. This

isn't your first criminal offense,

and you can't afford

a scandal right now.

- Do you get that?

- Then pay him off.

Oh, that's brilliant.

See, just pay him off, Bill.

That's all. Can I ask you a question?

Seriously.

Are you just naive

or a complete fucking idiot?

Yeah. Bill, what the f*ck are we

gonna do with this guy?

Huh? You don't know?

That's great.

We got to figure a way

to avoid a conviction.

- Oh, really?

- Got to appease the courts.

We got to make it look like

he's going to lake responsibility,

and we're gonna spin it and try

to get the studio back on set.

And how do you suggest

that we do that, Bill?

No idea.

(whispers)

Doesn't know. Terrific.

You know what?

Maybe there's a way to

make an example of him.

Make it look like we're taking

a loss, but really everybody wins.

I love that.

How are we gonna do that?

Let me talk to the prosecutor

about that. I got an idea.

But he has to plead guilty.

Whoa! Absolutely not!

No fucking way!

I'm not pleading guilty.

Brody Walker pled guilty to assault

and battery charges just weeks after

an incident involving him

attacking a photographer.

However, Walker's lawyers accepted

a plea bargain and admitted him into

a judicial diversion program which

will see him spend time shadowing

law enforcement

for the duration of his sentence.

Walker's lawyer, Bill Donner,

says that they are confident

that he will complete

the program successfully

and that he should be back

at work shortly.

The nice thing is that he':

already staying out of trouble.

And I can assure you that he's

under the care of New York's finest.
