Border Patrol Agent Ben Clemens (Michael Chiklis) has spent over the past three decades protecting the U.S. borders from threats to the nation- but now times have changed. Clemens now finds himself in a position of having to work for the very people he's spent most of his life fighting against. But as Clemens experiences life on the other side of the wall, he soon realizes that his black-and-white views of the world no longer hold up to the cold, hard facts. Clemens will find his ideologies challenged and his loyalties questioned when CBS All Access premieres all six episodes of crime drama Coyote on Thursday, January 7, 2021- when it becomes all too clear that some of the deadliest threats he faces are "red, white, and blue."
