Based on the feature film starring Bradley Cooper, Limitless is a fast-paced drama starring Jake McDorman (American Sniper) as Brian Finch, an ordinary man who discovers a way of becoming one of the world’s smartest people by using the powerful neuro-enhancing drug NZT. When Brian becomes involved in a murder investigation, the FBI coerce him into working with them and use his extraordinary cognitive skills to help them solve complicated cases.

Working closely with Brian is Special Agent Rebecca Harris (Jennifer Carpenter, Dexter), a formidable investigator with a dark past, and Special Agent Boyle (Hill Harper, CSI: NY), a former military officer. They report to Special Agent in Charge Nasreen “Naz” Pouran (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, The Color of Money), a canny manipulator of the reins of power. Unbeknownst to the FBI, Brian 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. 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. Limitless will premiere on FOX.
