Person of Interest Pilot Sneak Peek

By on September 16, 2011

Person of interest is the new crime drama from CBS starring Michael Emerson (Lost) and Jim Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ).

Emerson plays Finch, a mysterious billionaire who develops a computer program that can predict the identity of certain people connected to violent crimes about to take place in the future.  If you’re thinking Minority Report at this point, I should point out that the catch in Person of Interest is that the program is actually quite limited.  It cannot predict whether the person involved in the crime will be victim, witness or perpetrator.  Not can it tell where the crime will be committed.

Finch hires presumed dead former CIA agent John Reese (Caviezel) to help him stop the crimes from ever taking place.

Person of Interest premieres on CBS Thursday September 22nd.  J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot produces.
