Emmy Award-winner Michael Emerson (Lost) stars in TV ONE’s new series Person of Interest, a thought-provoking criminal drama about an eccentric billionaire who partners with an ex-CIA agent to prevent violent crimes.
Emerson plays Finchy, a billionaire whose unlimited assets allow him to continue a surveillance project he invented for the US Government.
Even though he is longer employed by the state, Finch still receives the Social Security numbers of individuals who have been singled out by security footage as likely participants in impending violent crimes.
Whether these persons of interest are potential victims or criminals is up to Finch and his sidekick, mysterious former agent Reese (Jim Caviezel The Prisoner) to find out.
Tapping into the world’s Big Brother-like surveillance network, the shadowy duo knows that something bad is going to happen; it’s their mission to discover what that event will be … and somehow prevent it.
Operating on a parallel track are New York detectives Carter (Taraji Henson, Hustle and Flow) and the corrupt Fusco (Kevin Chapman Hawthorne), who must enforce the law while still abiding by it. Running counterpoint to Reese’s unconventional yet effective methods, Carter strives not only to collar criminals, but the evasive Reese as well.
