Minority Report is one of the new shows coming to the Fox network starting in the fall. While it already had some excitement over the series, the first trailer is sure to grab many new fans in anticipation of the series.
It is sure to be a hit after following the success of the film version starring Tom Cruise, which was released in 2002 and was directed by Steven Spielberg. The film was based on a short story by Philip K. Dick, who has a long history of successful adaptations to TV and film including the cult film Blade Runner, based on Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep.
The upcoming Fox series is gaining all kinds of attention after the recent casting addition of Meagan Good and she will star alongside Stark Sands, who is primarily known for his work on Broadway, as well as the musical drama Inside Llewyn Davis, directed by the Coen Brothers.
Minority Report is set in the future with a concept called pre-crime, the idea that people can stop crimes before they happen. The TV version will be set 10 years after the events of the film, which concluded with law enforcement’s Precrime division being disbanded.
Lara Vega (Good) is a female detective who is haunted by her past and teams up with a Precog (Sands) who continues to be plagued with his visions. The premise is similar to the film version, although the gender of each character has been swapped.
In addition to the two main characters, the cast of the series includes Wilmer Valderrama, Daniel London, Laura Regan, Li Jun Li and Zhane Hall. Kevin Falls is the showrunner and an executive producer along with Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank.
Minority Report looks like it will be an exciting action series that should captivate viewers, a genre that Fox has had success with before with shows such as 24. It will air on Monday nights following Gotham, Fox’s latest hit show.
