''Leverage'' (2008-2012) is a crime {{dramedy}} which follows the exploits of Leverage Consulting & Associates, a team of heroic criminals led by a former insurance investigator. The team takes a [[JustLikeRobinHood modern-day Robin Hood approach]] of finding people and corporations who have committed wrongs and [[PayEvilUntoEvil attempting to restore justice as they see it]], using their skills to run elaborate ''Film/OceansEleven''-style cons on their targets. Think of them as a modern-day version of ''Series/MissionImpossible'' or ''Series/TheATeam''.

The show has finished its fifth and final season after TNT opted not to renew it for a sixth. However, the franchise is being continued through [[http://www.us.penguingroup.com/nf/Search/QuickSearchProc/1,,Author_2000000892,00.html tie-in novels]] and [[http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/index.php?keywords=Leverage&x=0&y=0&author=&artist=&pfrom=&pto= role-playing games]].

One of the show creators is Creator/JohnRogers, better known on the Internet as [[http://kfmonkey.blogspot.com/ Kung Fu Monkey]]. If you see something about the show cited as WordOfGod, it probably comes from somewhere on his blog.

This show has a work-in-progress [[{{Characters/Leverage}} character sheet]] and [[{{Recap/Leverage}} Episode Recap]].

It's also so full of [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]] it's practically ReferenceOverdosed, so be sure to check out the [[ShoutOut/{{Leverage}} Shout Out page.]]

It has an [[ThePond across-the-pond]] [[TransAtlanticEquivalent counterpart]] in ''Series/{{Hustle}}''. While the general concept is the same and at least one prominent guest star appeared on both shows, the two shows are unrelated.
