Last week, Fox issued a series order for Minority Report, based on director Steven Spielberg's 2002 theatrical blockbuster of the same name. During the network's upfront presentation in New York City today, the first trailer was unveiled, giving us our first look at Washington D.C. in the year 2065, 10 years after the Precrime era came to an end. This series marks the first ever TV adaptation of a Steven Spielberg 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. Take a look at the first footage from this upcoming fall series, which 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.
