A blip on a screen, a faulty frequency, or a mysterious interference -0 what are these unknown signals? Where are they coming from? And what do they really mean? Experts investigate these mysterious phenomena, explore whether life exists beyond our universe and breakdown the meaning behind these puzzling signals.

According to Josie Hughes’ (Chaley Rose, A Christmas Duet, Dinner for Two) family lore, the wedding bouquet always finds the right person. When single Josie catches her friend Emma’s (Luisa d’Oliveira, Channel Zero, Cracked) bouquet instead of their not-single friend Athena (Rebecca Olson), she fears she’s ruined Athena’s chances of getting engaged. When Josie starts dating an eligible bachelor she met at the reception, she decides the bouquet is at work. What she doesn’t know is her long-time friend Alex (Nathan Witte, Merry Liddle Christmas Wedding) secretly holds a torch for her. As Josie clings to the notion that the bouquet is always right, she’s missing real-world signs that her perfect match has been in front of her all along.
