"Mr. Robot" (TV show) is an intense hacker drama series on USA Network that stars Rami Malek ("24"), Christian Slater ("The Adderall Diaries"), Portia Doubleday ("Her"), Carly Chaikin ("Suburgatory") and Martin Wallström ("Simple Simon").

This contemporary and culturally resonant drama is about a young programmer, Elliot (Malek), who suffers from a debilitating anti-social disorder and decides that he can only connect to people by hacking them. He wields his skills as a weapon to protect the people that he cares about. Elliot will find himself in the intersection between a cybersecurity firm for which he works and the underworld organizations that are recruiting him to bring down corporate America. Slater stars in the title role of Mr. Robot, a mysterious anarchist who recruits Elliot into an underground hacker group to destroy the firm Elliot is paid to protect. Compelled by his personal beliefs, Elliot struggles to resist the chance to take down the multinational CEOs he believes are running (and ruining) the world.

"Mr. Robot" is produced by Universal Cable Productions and is from writer and executive producer Sam Esmail ("Comet") and executive producers Anonymous Content's Steve Golin ("True Detective") and Chad Hamilton ("Breakup at a Wedding"). The pilot was directed by Niels Arden Oplev ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo").
