Freedom is a short-lived 2000 American science fiction television show on the UPN network. There were 12 episodes filmed (actually 13, as the pilot eventually broadcast had been reshot with somewhat different casting) but only 7 were aired in the US. Some episodes were further aired internationally, and the full series is still occasionally broadcast in Brazil.[1]

Plot[edit]

After war breaks out in the Middle East, combined with an economic downturn that causes mass unemployment and homelessness in America, the President of the United States travels extensively to resolve the matter but the plane goes down and he (or she) is presumed dead. The US is taken over by United States military forces in what becomes an invisible coup, who label themselves the "Regime". Four military personnel, from different sections of the uniformed services are arrested for unknown charges (although one later reveals he was ordered to assassinate the President and refused, resulting in false charges being brought against him), and remanded to prison, where they are later freed by rebels. The four join up with a wider resistance movement against the military government in order to restore the Constitution and freedom to the people.
