The Pretender

The Pretender

The Pretender is the story of Jarod, a highly intelligent person who has the ability to become anything he wants to be. Kidnapped as a child, Jarod was kept by a think tank known as "The Centre." After his escape, Jarod tries to find out who he really is and what happened to his family, while helping normal people who have trouble appear in their lives. Assuming different identities and performing different careers, Jarod (Michael T. Weiss) outsmarts The Centre, including Miss Parker (Andrea Parker), Jarod's father-like figure Syndey (Patrick Bauchau), and Broots (Jon Gries). Along the way, The Centre's deepest secrets are revealed including some of the most complex story lines ever seen on television. Characters such as Mr. Parker, Mr. Lyle (Jamie Denton), Dr. Raines reveal Jarod's past, Jarod's family, the interworking of The Centre, Miss Parker's mother's death, and much more.
