After canceling its one-time hit drama The Following, Fox has announced two possible replacements as it gives series orders to a pair of highly anticipated new shows. We already showed you a /lucifer-dc-tv-series-photo-tom-ellis/first look photo of Tom Ellis as Lucifer, with that series based on the popular DC Vertigo comics. Now we have word that the sequel series Minority Report is also moving forward. It is a direct follow-up to Steven Spielberg's 2002 sci-fi hit of the same name and will serve as a episodic sequel to that movie.
Minority Report will be executive produced by Steven Spielberg, and is the first of his films to be adapted for television. The hour-long drama follows an unlikely partnership between a man haunted by future visions and a cop tormented by her recent past. The pair race to stop the worst crimes of the year 2065 before they ever happen. Set in Washington, D.C., it is now 10 years after the demise of Precrime, a law enforcement agency tasked with identifying and eliminating criminals...before their crimes were committed.
To carry out this brand of justice, the agency used three precogs - "precognitives" Dash, Arthur and Agatha - who were able to see the future. Now, crime-solving is different, and justice leans more on sophisticated and trusted technology than on the instincts of the precogs. Precog Dash (Stark Sands) - driven by his terrifying, but fragmented visions - now has returned in secret to help a brash, but shrewd, police detective, Lara Vega (Meagan Good), attempt to stop the murders that he predicts. As they navigate this future America, they will search for Dash's missing twin brother, Arthur, and elude others who will stop at nothing to exploit their precog abilities.
Also complicating matters is Dash and Arthur's ingenious, but reclusive, foster sister, Agatha (Laura Regan), who just wants Dash to return home. A drama of crime and conspiracy, this is a timeless story of connection: two lost souls, Dash and Vega, who find friendship, purpose and redemption in each other. From Amblin, Paramount Television and 20th Century Fox TV, the series is executive produced by Max Borenstein (Godzilla), Spielberg, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Mark Mylod and Kevin Falls.
