Shark Lake

Synopsis: Fiercely protective single-mom Meredith Hendricks happens to also be the best cop in her quiet town on Lake Tahoe. When a black-market exotic species dealer named Clint, is paroled from prison, something he let loose begins to make its presence known. Swimmers and land-lovers alike begin to become part of the food chain at an unbelievable rate. Meredith and the new man in her life, a biologist named Peter, begin to investigate these brutal attacks and discover that they're not just hunting one eating machine, but a whole family of them. After a documentary crew is devoured when they don't take the threat seriously, it's up to Meredith, Peter, and the unlikely hero, Clint, to stop the most dangerous thing on the planet: A mother protecting its young. Not everyone will make it out alive, but those who do will never forget this summer at Shark Lake.

Lake County Sheriff Department!

Holy shit.

Are you okay?


Liberty time, you ready?

Give me twenty minutes.

You say goodnight

to some friends.

Geez, man!


Let him make a mistake.

He's not making a

mistake on his own.

Maybe we should

call for backup?

I'm pretty busy right now,

but you go right ahead.

This is, uh, Sheriff Deputy

Galloway with a high speed

pursuit on a white...

Ford Econoline van

on pine road.


Down on your knees!

Down on your knees!

You're under arrest!


Where's her morn?

Died a year and a half ago.

So who's coming

to get her?

Grandma, aunt, neighbor?

Child care services

will get here

when they get here.

I'm sorry, sweetie.

In order to get the

deep end bracelet,

you got to make it

to the other end.

Hey, where are you going?

Home. Swimming is stupid.


That's not what you

said on the way over here.

I changed my mind.

Hmm, you swam across

the shallow end without

touching the

bottom, right?

Hey! Hey! Hey! Guys, c'mon...

Oh, I see!

Those guys can pass the deep

end test, but you can't?


I think you should

get back in the water.

I don't want to.

Carly, there's two types of

girls in this world:

girls who say I can't, and

girls who say watch this.

Which one are you?

This is DCFS. We would like

to set up a time for...

Do you have any idea how

stupid the state of Nevada is?

I have a feeling you're

about to tell me.

Clint Gray is a problem?

Child services is trying

to arrange a supervised

visit with him and Carly.


This is how it starts, Lewis!

Look, hang on a second.

- No, no! It's not happening.

You need to get Judge

Grimes on the line now.

That's not how it works.

2005, assault and battery.

2009, assault and battery

of a police officer.

2005 to 2010? Trafficking of

illegal animals through his

house which include

Burmese pythons, wolves,

a god damn tiger.

You ever heard of a

sports team named the

Brooklyn Bunnies or the

Pennsylvania Puppy Dogs?

A lot of people like wild,

vicious animals, Meredith.

He just sold people what

they wanted to buy.

It's no different

than dealing.

He had them in the

house with Carly.

And he served his time,

and now he's out,

and he's still her dad.

I'm not letting

him near her.

That's not up to you.

Look, it could be six

weeks, it could be six

months, but it's

gonna happen.

You should be more

concerned with enforcing

the law rather than

ignoring the parts

that you don't like.

It's my job to

keep her safe.

Just make the call, please.

Alright, I don't think

it will help, but

I'll see what I can do.

Thank you.

Christopher, did you see

the bears are active sign?


Do you think that

the bears are active?


Do we have to do this

without people around?

What about the bears?

Come on!

Christopher, I

forgot my iPad.

I need to take some

pictures of the lake

and send them

to Lois Etsler.

She said she heard

it's not that nice.

Yeah, well she's an idiot.

I think she's just jealous

because Bernie took her

to the Lobster Lounge

for their fortieth.

She's just gonna die when she

sees how clear it is.

I Wish.

What did you say?

I said I'll be right here

when you get back, darling.



Holy moley!




No. no!!

So, a forty niner tries

to escape into the lake,

but the bear was faster?

It catches him a few

feet into the water

and proceeds to rip

the poor guy apart.

And the wife

saw all this?

M'mm. She was coming

down from the car.

She's not exactly

Usain Bolt.

She heard the attack, but she
