Created by Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers and starring Lee Pace (Guardians of the Galaxy), Scoot McNairy (Argo), Kerry Bishe (Nice Guy Johnny) and Mackenzie Davis (What If), Halt and Catch Fire focuses on an unlikely trio—a visionary, an engineer and a computer prodigy—and the personal and professional risks they take in the race to build a computer that will change the world as they know it. While charting the changing culture of the Silicon Prairie, tensions build within the group as they attempt to navigate the thin line between genius and delusion, driving to do something that’s genuinely innovative and that truly matters.
