Christopher Webster [Cathode Ray Mission 05.12.15] cyberpunk scifi thriller

FOX is bringing Minority Report to the small screen this fall and you can get your first taste in the trailer below. The show, based on the film by Stephen Spielberg and the short story by Philip K. Dick it is described as a drama of crime and conspiracy.

I've long been a fan of Minority Report and consider one of the better PKD adapts. The world building is fascinating and the story is consistently full of twits and turns.

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.

Precog DASH (Stark Sands, “Inside Llewyn Davis”) – driven by his terrifying, but fragmented visions – now has returned in secret to help a brash, but shrewd, police detective, LARA vega (Meagan Good, “Think Like A Man” franchise, “Californication”), attempt to stop the murders that he predicts.

As they navigate this future America, they will search for Dash’s missing twin brother, ARTHUR, and elude others who will stop at nothing to exploit their precog abilities. Also complicating matters is Dash and Arthur’s ingenious, but reclusive, foster sister, AGATHA (Laura Regan, “Mad Men,” “Unbreakable”), who just wants Dash to return home.

Coming to FOX in Fall 2015!

Wow, that looks like horrible, badly written, totally derivative shit utterly devoid of any style, class or soul.

Not like I was expecting great art, but this is Really Bad(TM). Yuck.
