Set in the 1980s, shortly after the release of IBM’s first personal computer, Halt follows former IBM executive Joe MacMillan (Pushing Daisies‘ Lee Pace) as he plots to “reverse engineer” the product and enter his own private company into the PC race.

The drama also stars Scoot McNairy (Bones) as engineer Gordon Clark; Kerry Bishé (Scrubs) as Gordon’s wife, Donna; and Mackenzie Davis (I Just Want My Pants Back) as Cameron Howe, a young prodigy who joins Joe’s crusade.
