J.J. Abrams could have another show on the air. CBS has just greenlit a pilot from Abrams’ Bad Rotbot and The Dark Knight co-writer Jonah Nolan.
The show, Person of Interest, centers on an ex-CIA hitman and a scientist who team up to prevent crimes before they happen. Sounds a bit like The Minority Report, no?
Abrams and Nolan are executive producing with Bad Robot’s Bryan Burk. Nolan is also writing.
Person of Interest is the second pilot order this season for Bad Robot following Fox’s pickup of Alcatraz, which stars Jorge Garcia and Sam Neill.
