I’m hooked on a number of shows on RTL CBS Entertainment HD. I just really love this channel because of their interesting and fun line up of shows. So, I’m always anticipating which show they’re going to introduce next.
I’m pleased to tell you that a brand new action-packed drama called LIMITLESS, the highly-anticipated TV series in the US this fall, will premiere on RTL CBS Entertainment HD on September 23, Wednesday at 9 p.m. (8 p.m. JKT/BKK) within 12 hours of its U.S. broadcast.
Last September 10, I got to watch the first episode of Limitless at a special media screening at MyCinema at Greenbelt 3. We were told that we were some of the first few who got to watch the first episode in advance and were asked not to divulge any information about the show until today. That’s how exciting it is!
Limitless is actually based on the feature film with the same title. It is an action-drama about Brian Finch, who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug NZT. The series stars Jake McDorman (“American Sniper” and “Greek”), Jennifer Carpenter (“Dexter”), Hill Harper (“CSI:NY” and “Covet Affairs”), and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio (“Scarface” and “The Colour of Money”). Academy Award nominee, Bradley Cooper is executive producing the series and will guest star in the pilot reprising his role as Senator Edward Mora, the character he played in the movie.
LIMITLESS is a fast-paced drama that will explore what happens when there are no limits to man’s potential as Finch is coerced by the FBI to use his newfound extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them. Working closely with Finch in the major case squad in New York City is Special Agent Rebecca Harris (Jennifer Carpenter), a formidable investigator with a dark past and Special Agent Boyle (Hill Harper), a former military officer and Rebecca’s confidant.
Unbeknownst to the FBI, Finch 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. Fueled now with a steady supply of NZT that enables him to use 100% of his brain capacity, Finch is now 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 is executive produced by Craig Sweeny, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Heather Kadin, Marc Webb, Bradley Cooper, Todd Phillips, Ryan Kavanaugh, Tucker Tooley and Tom Forman. Produced by CBS Television Studios in association with K/O Paper Products and Relativity Television, the series is internationally distributed by CBS Studios International.
Based on the first episode alone, I can already tell that this new series is going to be really thrilling. It really is fast-paced and makes the viewers curious to find out what happens next. I am so looking forward to discover to see what happens to Finch.
It doesn’t hurt that the actor that plays Finch is Jake McDorman. He’s a real cutie. He has been on a lot of TV shows and some movies already but the first time I really liked him was on Manhattan Love Story. I’m a so glad he’s back with a new TV series so that I can watch him again!
