Reaper is a dramedy that aired on The CW. Sam Oliver is a slacker who works at the Work Bench with his friends Sock and Ben and Andi. On his twenty-first birthday, he finds out his soul was sold to the Devil by his parents before he was born. They did it because Sam's Dad, John, was sick, so a deal was struck with the devil that in turn for John's health, the Devil would get their firstborn child.

Sam now has to work for the devil by essentially being a bounty hunter for him. Souls escape from hell, and the Devil gives Sam a vessel to use each time to capture the soul. He takes these vessel to 'hell on Earth', which in this case is a DMV where a demon named Gladys takes the soul and sends it back to hell.
