As seen in the new trailer for “The Consultant,” the series follows the story of a tech company that finds itself without a CEO after a tragic incident on site. In comes a new consultant (Waltz), who seems to be very strict and demanding, but also could be a sociopathic maniac. The fun is in finding out just what this guy actually is.
