NBC has ordered The Irrational to series and Law & Order veteran Jesse L. Martin is returning to the peacock network. Martin will star in the new crime drama, which follows a behavioral scientist who helps solve cases. It isn’t yet known when the series will arrive – this season or next.
Based on the novel Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely, the series is being written by Arika Lisanne Mittman (La Brea, Timeless). Maahra Hill, Travina Springer, Molly Kunz, and Arash DeMaxi also star in the series.
The Hollywood Reporter revealed the following about the plot of the NBC series:
Martin will play Alec Baker, a renowned professor of behavioral science who lends his expertise to an array of high-stakes cases involving governments, law enforcement and corporations with his unique and unexpected approach to understanding human behavior.
