‘Minority Report’ Season 1, Episode 1: ‘Pilot’
Ten years after the end of Precrime in Washington D.C., one of the three precogs struggles to lead a normal life, but remains haunted by visions of the future.
Based on the international blockbuster film by executive producer Steven Spielberg and the first of his films to be adapted for television, Minority Report follows the unlikely partnership between a man haunted by the future and a cop haunted by her past, as they race to stop the worst crimes of the year 2065 before they happen. Set in Washington, D.C., it is 10 years after the demise of Precrime, a law enforcement agency tasked with identifying and eliminating criminals… before their crimes were committed. To carry out this brand of justice, the agency used three precogs – “precognitives” Dash, Arthur and Agatha – who were able to see the future. Now, in 2065, crime-solving is different, and justice leans more on sophisticated and trusted technology than on the instincts of the precogs.
Minority Report season 1, episode 1 airs Sept. 21 at 9 p.m EDT on Fox.
