Sky1 has acquired the UK rights for new high-concept action thriller Intelligence, starring Lost‘s Josh Holloway.
The 13-part series will debut in the UK with a double-bill at 9pm on Thursday 17 April on Sky1.
Gabriel Vaughn (Holloway) is an agent at the US Cyber Command at the National Security Agency. Vaughan has been fitted with the world’s first Direct Neural Interface, a microchip implanted in his brain that allows him to tap into databases, computers and electronic files to process information.
Lillian Strand (Marg Helgenberger, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), the director of the US Cyber Command, brings in Riley Neal (Megan Ory, Once Upon a Time), a Secret Service Agent to protect Gabriel. When they’re given a mission to locate the kidnapped neuroscientist responsible for creating the microchip, Gabriel and Riley discover that the enemy may be closer than they imagined and may be creating their own counter-intelligence to rival Gabriel.
