CBS 2011 Fall TV Premiere: Person Of Interest image
CBS has a few drama series joining their primetime line-up this fall and among them is Person of Interest, which stars Jim Caviezel and Michael Emerson. The series, which has J.J. Abrams among its executive producers, follows two men who team up to prevent crime, vigilante-style.

Iím of the mindset that when it comes to TV, super-hero stories actually work better with a bit a bit less super, fewer capes and costumes and more reality, with relatable characters. Iím less intrigued by a show that features a man or woman in spandex rushing around saving the day as I am two regular people doing it, finding ways to make their town/city a better place by preventing crime. Person of Interest sounds like it could be a great non-super hero story. The idea of a presumed dead former CIA-agent and a rich guy teaming up to prevent crime has a sort of super-hero flavor to it while also being more or less grounded in realityÖ more-so than if they were running around in capes, anyway.

Here's CBS' synopsis for the series and further down is a behind-the-scenes video...

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.

Emmy Award winners J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk (Lost), Academy Award nominee Jonathan Nolan (Memento), David Semel (Heroes) and Greg Plageman (Cold Case) are the executive producers for Warner Bros. Television.


Person of Interest will air on Thursday (9-9:30 p.m.) on CBS starting Fall 2011.
