Pluto TV, the leading streaming television service in the U.S., and a ViacomCBS company, will stream a special two-week sampling of the premiere episodes of new CBS Original dramas, THE EQUALIZER and CLARICE. Pluto TV will stream both episodes following their broadcast debuts on the CBS Television Network on Feb. 7 and 11, respectively, and will stream across several Pluto TV channels.
Following THE EQUALIZER's series premiere immediately after SUPER BOWL LV, Sunday, Feb. 7 on the CBS Television Network, the episode will run on all previously mentioned platforms until Sunday, Feb. 21. After CLARICE premieres on Thursday, Feb. 11 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the Network, the drama's first episode will begin streaming across the platforms immediately after, until midnight, Thursday, Feb. 25.
THE EQUALIZER is a reimagining of the classic series starring Academy Award(R) nominee and multi-hyphenate Queen Latifah ("Chicago," "Bessie") as Robyn McCall, an enigmatic woman with a mysterious background who uses her extensive skills as a former CIA operative to help those with nowhere else to turn. McCall presents to most as an average single mom who is quietly raising her teenage daughter. But to a trusted few, she is The Equalizer - an anonymous guardian angel and defender of the downtrodden, who's also dogged in her pursuit of personal redemption.
CLARICE, from acclaimed executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet, and starring Rebecca Breeds ("Pretty Little Liars") in the title role, is a deep dive into the untold personal story of FBI Agent Clarice Starling as she returns to the field in 1993, one year after the events of "The Silence of the Lambs." Brilliant and vulnerable, Clarice's bravery gives her an inner light that draws monsters and madmen to her. However, her complex psychological makeup that comes from a challenging childhood empowers her to begin to find her voice while working in a man's world, as well as escape the family secrets that have haunted her throughout her life.
