It is a dark comedy that follows the gruesome misadventures of a Los Angeles based crime-scene clean-up crew. Each episode finds our team wading through the muck of a new assignment, a new location, and new set of toxic predicaments. Calling themselves bioremediation engineers is a just a fancy way of saying they scrape up brains for a living. But the carnage theyre mopping up is nothing compared to the wreckage of their personal lives.
