Intelligence - 2014 CBS midseason show

Didn't see a thread on this upcoming show, featuring Josh Holloway (Lost) and Marg Helgenberger (CSI).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intell...._TV_series%29


The plot of this show (from wikipedia article):

"In Intelligence, Josh Holloway stars as Gabriel Vaughn, a high-tech intelligence operative enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain. With this implant, Gabriel is the first human ever to be connected directly into the global information grid. He can hack into any data center and access key intel in the fight to protect the United States from its enemies. Marg Helgenberger stars as Lillian Strand, the director of the elite government cyber-security agency who supports Gabriel and oversees the unit's missions. Strand assigns Riley Neal (Meghan Ory), a Secret Service agent, to protect Gabriel from outside threats, as well as from his appetite for reckless, unpredictable behavior, and disregard for protocol."


On the surface, it sounds like elements from other tv shows like Chuck, Continuum, Person of Interest, etc ...


The wikipedia article further mentions the backstory of this show is based on an unpublished novel "Phoenix Island" by John Dixon. Various advanced reviews of this novel,

which sounds a bit like the premise of the 1993 movie "Point of No Return" or the tv show Nikita.
