Minority Report, the new FOX series this fall, will bring Precrime back to the forefront of our minds. Based on the 2002 film with Tom Cruise and Colin Farrell, the series picks up 10 years later, in a world that relies on tech, rather than precogs. But precog Dash (Stark Sands) finds it hard to shut out the visions.
Check out the clips, cast photos, and synopsis below.
The videos give you a glimpse of where that world is now that 10 years have passed, and describe some of the characters and their motivations. Crimes are solved after they happened, and Detective Lara Vega (Meagan Good) is tired of that. Dash has returned, haunted by his visions, and wanting to do something about it. Lara finds him, and wants to help and be helped to stop murder. If the show is as good as the clips look, I’m definitely checking it out.
Minority Report premieres Monday, September 21st at 9pm ET on FOX.
Based on the international blockbuster film by executive producer Steven Spielberg and the first of his films to be adapted for television, 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 criminalsâ€¦before their crimes were committed. To carry out this brand of justice, the agency used three precogs â€“ â€œprecognitivesâ€ Dash, Arthur and Agatha â€“ 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, â€œInside Llewyn Davisâ€) â€“ driven by his terrifying, but fragmented visions â€“ now has returned in secret to help a brash, but shrewd, police detective, LARA Vega (Meagan Good, â€œThink Like A Manâ€ franchise, â€œCalifornicationâ€), attempt to stop the murders that he predicts.
As they navigate this future America, they will search for Dashâ€™s missing twin brother, ARTHUR, and elude others who will stop at nothing to exploit their precog abilities. Also complicating matters is Dash and Arthurâ€™s ingenious, but reclusive, foster sister, AGATHA (Laura Regan, â€œMad Men,â€ â€œUnbreakableâ€), 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.
