Set in the early 1980s, HALT AND CATCH FIRE is the compelling drama that explores the personal computing boom through the eyes of a visionary, an engineer and a prodigy whose innovations directly confront the corporate behemoths of the time.

Featuring a slick cast including; Lee Pace (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) as former IBM sales executive Joe MacMillan; Scoot McNairy (12 Years A Slave, Argo) as engineer Gordon Clark; Mackenzie Davis (That Awkward Moment, What If?) as volatile prodigy Cameron Howe; Kerry Bisché (Grand Piano, Argo) as Gordon’s wife and fellow engineer Donna Clark; and Toby Huss (Cowboys & Aliens, Rescue Dawn) as senior VP of Cardiff Electric, John Bosworth. HALT AND CATCH FIRE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SERIES is the intelligent brand new original series focusing on the technology boom of the 1980s.

The show is set one year after IBM all but corners the market with the release of its first major product – the IBM PC. In this fictional drama, a former IBM executive, Joe MacMillan (Pace) plans to reverse engineer the flagship product of his former employer and forces his current company, Cardiff Electric, into the personal computer race. MacMillan enlists the help of Gordon Clark (McNairy), a great engineer whose unrealised dreams of creating a revolutionary product have created tension in his marriage to Donna (Bishé), and Cameron Howe (Davis), a volatile prodigy who puts her future in jeopardy to join MacMillan’s rogue PC project.
