Leverage is an American action crime drama television series, which aired on TNT from December 7, 2008, to December 25, 2012. The series was produced by Electric Entertainment, a production company of executive producer and director Dean Devlin. Leverage follows a five-person team: a thief, a grifter, a hacker, and a retrieval specialist, led by former insurance investigator Nathan Ford, who use their skills to carry out heists to fight corporate and governmental injustices inflicted on ordinary citizens.
Nathan “Nate” Ford is a former insurance investigator known for recovering millions of dollars in stolen property and chasing the most dangerous and elusive thieves in the world. Devastated after the expensive treatment and eventual loss of his son, he is approached by aerospace industrialist Victor Dubenich to recover stolen intellectual property by leading a group of thieves — all of whom he previously chased.
Nate initially disagrees, as the thieves all have reputations for being loners who do not cooperate with others; they include hacker Alec Hardison, ‘hitter’ Eliot Spencer, and a thief known only as “Parker”. While the job is successful, Dubenich double crosses them and attempts to have them killed. Instead of fleeing, Nate persuades the team to retaliate, and further recruits the assistance of Sophie Deveraux, a formidable grifter, to put Dubenich out of business.
Under Nate’s leadership, the group coalesces into a very effective unit, succeeding in ruining Dubenich’s business, clearing their names, and providing each thief enough money to retire from crime. Realizing their potential as team, they approach Nate to continue under his leadership. Forced to choose between being a “white knight” versus the “black king,” Nate accepts on one condition: they will only target the corrupt and powerful to avenge ordinary people who have no other recourse.

Season four opens on an Alaskan mountain top a few days after the team leaves San Lorenzo, a planned two-week break interrupted by their latest job (The Long Way Down Job). Nate and Sophie come face-to-face for the first time since their unexpected morning after in San Lorenzo, and must decide their next move.
The team also discovers their headquarters bugged and must find out by whom, and why. Their cases took them to a murder mystery night (The Ten Li’l Grifters Job), back in time to recover a painting lost, then found during World War II with an aging vet (The Van Gogh Job), up against big technology (The Carnival Job) and big agriculture (The Hot Potato Job), the dark side of public relations (The 15 Minutes Job), and a corrupt family of funeral directors (The Grave Danger Job).
They travel to Dubai for an international chess tournament at the request of their old nemesis, Sterling (The Queen’s Gambit Job), their resourcefulness is tested when they must recover a stolen donor heart with what they can find around them during an airport layover (The Cross My Heart Job), and they must catch the grandson of the greatest con of them all at his own game (The Boiler Room Job).
Soon the team learns it is being followed by mysterious business man named Jack Latimer (Leon Rippy), who has learned how to profit from their cases, and wants something specific from Nate.
As they attempt to learn more about him, the team is drawn into the world of university secret societies (The Experimental Job), match-making (The Lonely Hearts Job) and the cash-for-gold industry (The Gold Job), and must save a small greeting card company with a documentary team filming as they do (The Office Job).
What starts out as a night off turns into two jobs when Parker’s friend Peggy (The Girls’ Night Out Job) and old mark Jack Hurley (The Boys’ Night Out Job) find themselves in the middle of two international conspiracies. The reappearance of Nate’s father, Jimmy, leads to a final confrontation with Latimer and his secret partner, Victor Dubenich, and it takes a team of old friends and rivals to bring the two down.
