Created by Ezra Koenig, the futuristic show takes place in "the greatest city in the world... a diverse labyrinth of cultural and architectural innovation," explained a voice in Thursday's 2-minute preview clip on YouTube.

"Of course, whenever a city becomes the envy of the world, problems are bound to arise," the narrator cautions as Smith's hero is called upon to protect his hometown.
