The official word: CBS announced today the new premiere date for the action thriller INTELLIGENCE, which will have a special preview on Tuesday, Jan. 7 (9:00-10:01 PM, ET/PT) following an original episode of NCIS. It will premiere in its regular Monday (10:00-11:00PM, ET/PT) time period on Jan. 13.
INTELLIGENCE stars Josh Holloway as 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. In her highly anticipated return to network television, 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.
INTELLIGENCE also stars Michael Rady, John Billingsley and PJ Byrne. Michael Seitzman, Tripp Vinson and Barry Schindel are the executive producers for ABC Television Studios in association with CBS Television Studios.
HOSTAGES will finish its 15 episode season with a special two-hour season finale on Monday, Jan. 6 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT).
