The highly-anticipated TV series in the US this fall, premieres on RTL CBS Entertainment HD on September 23.
Limitless is the new drama series based on the feature film with the same title four years ago. It is a reworking of the Bradley Cooper (Silver Lining’s Playbook) movie about a burned-out writer who accidentally took the drug NZT. According to the movie, human beings only use a fraction of their brain at a time, and the idea that people can, via a fast biochemical fix, access all the brain’s powers raises many fascinating possibilities. Thus, NZT allow man to gain extraordinary cognitive abilities that allow him to change his life.
Limitless is an action-drama about Brian Finch (Jake McDorman ) who gains brain-boosting special powers of the mysterious drug NZT. He is then coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them.
Fuelled now with a steady supply of NZT that enables him to use 100% of his brain capacity, Brian is more effective than all of the FBI agents combined, making him a criminal’s worst nightmare and the greatest asset the Bureau has ever possessed.
Unbeknownst to the FBI, Finch also has a clandestine relationship with Senator Edward Mora (Bradley Cooper), a presidential hopeful and regular user of NZT, who has plans of his own for his new protégé. Academy Award nominee, Bradley Cooper is the executive producer of the upcoming US sci-fi thriller series. He is also reprising his role of Senator Edward Mora, which he played in the movie.
LIMITLESS is executive produced by Craig Sweeny, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Heather Kadin, Marc Webb, Bradley Cooper, Todd Phillips, Ryan Kavanaugh, Tucker Tooley and Tom Forman.
Produced by CBS Television Studios in association with K/O Paper Products and Relativity Television, the series is internationally distributed by CBS Studios International.
