The Person of Interest Behind the Scenes TV Show Trailer has premiered. David Semel‘s Person of Interest (2011), produced by J. J. Abrams, stars Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson, Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Chapman, and Susan Misner. Person of Interest‘s plot synopsis: the show “centers on [a] ex-CIA hitman (Jim Caviezel) and a scientist (Michael Emerson) who team up to prevent crimes before they happen.”
The official press release for Person of Interest:
PERSON OF INTEREST stars Jim Caviezel, Emmy Award winner Michael Emerson (Lost) 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.
This looks good. I’m surprised Fox didn’t fight like a dog to get Person of Interest on their network. CBS must have given J.J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan a sweet heart deal to court them over to CBS. This show looks far stronger than the gimmicky Alcatraz, written about here: Alcatraz (2013) TV Show Trailer. Person of Interest also stars Courtenay Taylor, Jermaine Crawford, Emilio Delgado, Brian d’Arcy James, James Hanlon, Anthony Mangano, Heather Pence, Gregory Lay, Chris Chalk, and Naeem Uzimann.
