With the series premiere of Fox's Minority Report just over one month away, the network has released a new first look preview for this highly-anticipated sci-fi TV series. Stars Meagan Good (Det. Lara Vega), Stark Sands (Dash) and Wilmer Valderrama (Det. Will Blake) give us some insight into their characters. We also hear from executive producers Max Borenstein, Kevin Falls and Mark Mylod, with the producers explaining that the TV sequel takes place 10 years after Steven Spielberg's Minority Report movie.
Minority Report follows the unlikely partnership between a man haunted by the future and a cop haunted by her past, as they race to stop the worst crimes of the year 2065 before they happen. Set in Washington, D.C., it is 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, in 2065, crime-solving is different, and justice leans more on sophisticated and trusted technology than on the instincts of the precogs.
Precog Dash (Stark Sands, Inside Llewyn Davis) - driven by his terrifying, but fragmented visions - now has returned in secret to help a brash, but shrewd police detective, Lara Vega (Meagan Good, Think Like a Man franchise, Californication), 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, Mad Men, Unbreakable), 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. The series also stars Wilmer Valderrama as Will Blake, Daniel London as Wally, Li Jun Li as Akeela, Zhane Hall as Rico, which will air on Monday nights at 9 PM ET.
Minority Report is shaping up to be one of the hottest TV shows of the fall season. The series is set to debut Monday, September 21 at 9 PM ET, following the Season 2 premiere of Gotham at 8 PM ET. Will this show could be one of the biggest hits of the fall season? Let us know what you think, after checking out this new preview.
