On The Oath Season 1 Episode 1 -“The Deal”, a group of corrupt cops known as The Ravens are arrested by the FBI, which is putting together a RICO case targeting the multiple organized cop gangs in the Department. Led by Steve Hammond (Ryan Kwanten), the Ravens are pressured to inform on the other gangs and forced by Agent Aria Price (Elisabeth Röhm) to take on undercover agent Damon Byrd (Arlen Escarpeta) and sell him as one of their own.
With the threat of prison hanging over their heads, it’s up to Hammond to ensure that his fellow Ravens – his adopted brother Cole (Cory Hardrict), his partner Pete Ramos (J.J. Soria) and Karen Beach (Katrina Law) – stay in line. From now on, they will have to operate under the shadow of the Feds while keeping the deal a secret from the other Ravens, including their imprisoned former leader, Tom Hammond (Sean Bean), father of Steve and Cole. You can watch the full episode below.
About the show:
The Oath was written and created by showrunner and former longtime Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Joe Halpin (Hawaii Five-O) and the executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. The 10-episode original series explores a world of gangs made up of those sworn to protect and defend and sheds light on corrupt and secret societies that are nearly impossible to join.
Only a select few make the cut – but once inside, members will do what they must to protect one another from enemies on the outside and from within their own ranks. The Oath stars Ryan Kwanten, Cory Hardrict, Arlen Escarpeta, Katrina Law, J.J. Soria and Game of Thrones alum Sean Bean. Its cast also includes Michael Malarkey, Eve Mauro, Kwame Patterson, Linda Purl and Elisabeth Röhm. Jeff T. Thomas directs the series, which is exec produced by Jackson, Todd Hoffman, Dennis Kim, Anne Clements and Halpin.
