Fox is out with a trailer for its upcoming comedy series, " Breaking In ," starring Christian Slater, about a team of brainiacs that makes its money by testing office security systems for weaknesses. The TV twist is that the cyber sleuths also are hackers.
The network describes the show as "a half-hour workplace comedy about a high-tech security firm that takes extreme -- and often questionable -- measures to sell their protection services." The fictional firm, Contra Security, "gives clients a sense of security by first ripping it away."
Slater, who last appeared on the canceled show "The Forgotten," plays the enterprise's leader, Oz. The series debuts April 6.
The episodes may unintentionally assist the government's ongoing effort to raise public awareness about online threats -- if the show lasts.
