What Is The Code About?
The Code teaser does not unveil much about the show, except for who is going to be in it. A simple premise elaborates that in The Code, the military’s brightest minds take on the country’s toughest challenges inside the courtroom. Each attorney on the show is a prosecutor, a defense lawyer, an investigator – and a Marine. TV has seen, previously, several military and courtroom themed concepts, albeit independently. This time; however, Craig Sweeny and Craig Turk seem to have merged the two ideas to engineer something actually never-seen-before. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

However, when the pilot got approved, Luke Mitchell and Dana Delany stepped into their shoes respectively. Luke will essay the show’s male lead Captain John “Abe” Abraham.

Fans remember Luke Mitchell best for his role in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It was fan love that pushed Mitchell’s Lincoln Campbell from a recurring role to a regular one during the show’s final season.
