Forbidden Science debuted in January 2009, running for 13 episodes. It was first aired on Cinemax's "After Dark" section. It was a special blend of erotic, noir science fiction. The show involved a world where people could fulfill their deepest desires.
Forbidden Science is set in a future where most lives revolve around an elite corporation called 4Ever Innovations. The corporation employs brilliant, young scientists whose sole jobs are to download and sell memories. Lost loved ones are replaced by clones while new technology helps those that dare to take a chance live out their greatest fantasies. The clients of 4Ever Innovations must always remember: their wants can often come at a terrible price, but are they willing to pay that price with their lives?
Vanessa Broze plays Julia White, an android cloned after the recently deceased Stephanie White. She comes to the corporation in the hopes of making a new life, but starts to question whether or not her desires are her own. Colin Sommers, the owner of 4Ever Innovations, played by Levi Freeman
, seems like the kind of boss every employee wants. However, his smiles tend to have a back-up plan: to help only himself. Austin Ball
plays the nerdy scientist Dr. Philip Wise. His life consists of two things: computers and fiction, which soon changes. Bethany Montrose, played by Joanna Alderson, is the new Head of Sales at 4Ever and, like Julia, wants to start fresh, keeping her past forgotten. Can she do the same for Sommers?
