From The Dark Knight’s Jonathan Nolan and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions (Fringe, Lost, Alias), this thought-provoking, crime-action drama is inspired by the chilling omnipresence of global surveillance and information tracking. Person of Interest delivers the familiar elements of a crime procedural in a heightened, unpredictable manner, as former agent Reese (Caviezel) and his enigmatic partner Finch (Emerson) race to solve each crime before it occurs. Using data siphoned from the United States intelligence agencies deemed irrelevant to national security, Reese and Finch identify a “person of interest” and set out to solve the mystery of the impending crime that person will commit. Operating on a parallel track are New York detectives Carter (Henson) and the corrupt Fusco (Kevin Chapman, Mystic River), who must enforce the law while still abiding by it. Running counterpoint to Reese’s unconventional yet effective methods, Carter strives not only to collar criminals, but the evasive Reese as well.
