Among the drama series picked up by Fox is Bones spinoff The Finder, which stars Geoff Stults as Walter Sherman, an expert finder. We have the trailer for the series, some more details and a few photos for you to check out.
I’m pretty sure I’ll always think of Eddie from October Road when I see Geoff Stults, however it’s great to see him front and center in a new series. Between his involvement, co-star Michael Clarke Duncan and the show’s relation to Bones, The Finder already has a lot going for it.
Below is Fox’s synopsis for the series and further down is the trailer and some photos:
Iraq war veteran WALTER SHERMAN (Geoff Stults, She’s Out of My League) gained a reputation while serving in the Army Military Police as someone who was very good at tracking down insurgents, deserters and improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Unfortunately, Walter found one IED just moments before it found him. Two months later, when Walter woke from his coma, he earned an honorable discharge and returned home. His resulting brain damage from the explosion transformed him from someone skilled at recovering people and things into something much more extraordinary: a Finder.
From the creator of the hit series BONES comes THE FINDER, the new one-hour procedural centering on a remarkable man who uses his unique gift to help others recover what they’ve lost. Walter may have left the military, but his reputation as a discreet professional who can unearth anything and anyone has been passed on to generals, politicians and other powerful figures. His first post-military assignment was to find the CIA head honcho’s missing daughter and bring her home. Walter did both, and since then has never been without an assignment.
After settling in Key West, Walter met the beautiful and worldly IKE LATULIPPE (Saffron Burrows, Law & Order: Criminal Intent), a woman with a mysterious past and many hidden skills. She tends bar at The Ends of the Earth, which also serves as a makeshift office and home base for Walter. Walter helped Ike escape a dangerous life, and for that, she is eternally grateful. Another island denizen dedicated to Walter is LEO KNOX (Michael Clarke Duncan, The Green Mile), once an obese lawyer who, after the deaths of his wife and children, completely reinvented himself into a gentle giant, philosopher and Walter’s legal advisor. Because of his skills, Walter is often asked to find a person or a thing that law enforcement either will not or cannot find. With the help of Ike and Leo, as well as a patchwork of indebted connections, he and his team ultimately find meaning in their own lives by finding something or someone other people have lost
The Finder will begin airing Thursdays at 9:00 p.m. ET on Fox during Midseason 2012.
