The Gates is an American supernatural-themed television series produced by Fox Television Studios. The show was created by executive producers Grant Scharbo and Richard Hatem. It premiered on the ABC network on Sunday, June 20th, 2010. The premise of the series revolves around an exclusive, insular community known as The Gates; an upper-class housing complex and neighborhood that is virtually cut off from the rest of society. Former Chicago police detective Nick Monohan moves his family to The Gates where he assumes the position of Chief of Police. Despite its idyllic, friendly atmosphere, The Gates is a nexus of intrigue and mystery as well as a haven for occupants whose origins are other than normal. As Monahan begins investigating the murder of the previous police chief, he finds himself caught in a world filled with vampires, werewolves and witches.
