The Tiffany Network has some pretty successful dramas, but many of them have grown rather long in the tooth. Now, CBS has introduced its new Wisdom of the Crowd TV show. Does this freshman TV series have what it takes? Will Wisdom of the Crowd be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A cutting edge CBS crime drama, Wisdom of the Crowd stars Jeremy Piven, Richard T. Jones, Natalia Tena, Monica Potter, Blake Lee, Abigail F. Cowen, and Jake Matthews. After his daughter Mia (Cowen) is killed, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Jeffrey Tanner (Piven) sets out to design an online platform for real-time, crowdsourced crime solving. In his fixation to find his child’s killer, Tanner is motivated by the idea that a million minds are better than one. He recruits a crack team and pins all his hopes on harnessing the “wisdom of the crowd,” in order to solve Mia’s murder and as many others as possible. Meanwhile, Tanner’s ex-wife, Congresswoman Alex Hale (Potter), worries about his obsession. Despite their divorce, their profound grief has forged in them an unbreakable bond.
