TV show description:
A science fiction crime drama, this TV show follows the events of the 2011 film of the same name.
The series centers around the drug NZT-48 which unlocks 100% of the brain, giving whoever takes it complete recall of whatever they have learned — whether it be in class, a documentary, or even subconsciously. The origins of the drug are a mystery but it’s highly addictive and can have serious side-effects.
Deadbeat Brian Finch (Jake McDorman) is at a stage in his life where he realizes his ambition of becoming a rock star is not going to happen. Eddie Mora (Bradley Cooper) introduces Brian to the mysterious clear pill and it doesn’t take him long to realize its potential.
With his brain unlocked, he exhibits almost superhuman characteristics. Even Special Agent Boyle (Hill Harper), a highly skilled and highly trained professional who is at the top of his game, is unable to chase down Brian.
Aware of the drug’s existence through largely failed testing, FBI agent Rebecca Harris (Jennifer Carpenter) believes Brian’s abilities can be used as a resource and is determined to get Brian on her side.
With people willing to kill for the drug, Brian must decide where his loyalties lie.
Episode #22 — Finale: Part Two!
Following a stunning betrayal to their team, Brian and the FBI race to stop an NZT-enabled Sands (Colin Salmon) and his associates from orchestrating an international incident. Also, Brian experiences devastating side effects when his NZT immunity starts to wear off
First aired: April 26, 2016.
