"Pilot" is the first episode in the ABC drama, Shade: Eagle Eye. The episode premiered on September 20, 2018.
The episode opens up to the Shade headquarters in Dallas, Texas, nicknamed the "Hive" where Tragan discusses the effectiveness of his teams scattered throughout participating nations. While Shade has done impressive work in helping local special police forces, they lack a "Special Unit" themselves. Tragan is aware of this lacking and proposes a California based special unit that is equipped to undergo operations across the globe. While outlining his proposal, many of his leaders are outraged at the fact that this new unit would be much more expensive than their others, he counters that this unit could essentially be the Task Force's ace in dire situations. He is eventually granted funding and heeds a warning to put the very best into the unit. Tragan replies that he is way ahead of that.
