Unless you’re into repetitive crime procedurals or dumbass reality TV show “competitions”, then CBS probably hasn’t been your home for a long while now. The only show from the network I have on my DVR is “The Big Bang Theory”, which I still get a kick out of every now and then. Well, you can now add “Person of Interest” to that very short list, as James Caviezel returns to TV in what promises to be a pretty ass-kicking action show, courtesy of creator Jonah Nolan and J.J. Abrams. Check out your first looks at the show via some images and a preview trailer.
PERSON OF INTEREST stars Jim Caviezel, Emmy Award winner Michael Emerson and Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson in a crime thriller about a presumed dead former-CIA agent who teams up with a mysterious billionaire to prevent violent crimes by using their own brand of vigilante justice. Reese’s (Caviezel) special training in covert operations appeals to Finch (Emerson), a software genius who invented a program that uses pattern recognition to identify people about to be involved in violent crimes. Using state-of-the-art surveillance technology, the two work outside of the law using Reese’s adept skills and Finch’s unlimited wealth to unravel the mystery of the person of interest and stop the crime before it happens. Reese’s actions catch the attention of the NYPD, including homicide detective Carter (Henson), and Fusco (Kevin Chapman), a cop who Reese uses to his advantage. With infinite crimes to investigate, Reese and Finch find that the right person, with the right information, at the right time, can change everything.
Starring Jim Caviezel, former “Lostee” Michael Emerson, Kevin Chapman, and “The Karate Kid’s” Taraji P. Henson.
Coming to CBS this Fall on Thursdays at 9/8c.
