TV show description:
A high-tech crime drama, the Wisdom of the Crowd TV show centers on Silicon Valley entrepreneur Jeffrey Tanner (Piven). After his daughter Mia (Cowen) is killed, Tanner sets out to design an online platform for real-time, crowdsourced crime solving.
In his obsession to find his child’s killer, Tanner is motivated by the idea that a million minds are better than one. He pins all his hopes on harnessing the “wisdom of the crowd,” in order to solve this crime and as many others as possible.
Taking inspiration from Sophia, the personification of Wisdom, Tanner names the platform Sophe and drafts Detective Tommy Cavanaugh (Jones) for his team. Cavanaugh was the first police officer to investigate Mia’s murder and worked it until he was abruptly removed from the case.
Tanner and Cavanaugh work with Sara Morton (Tena) an ingenious engineer, whose relationship with Tanner is not strictly professional. Rounding out the team is their nerdy lead programmer, Josh Novak (Lee), a skilled, capable worker, and Tariq Bakari (Matthews), a tech savant and ace hacker who may have some authority issues.
Meanwhile, Tanner’s ex-wife, Congresswoman Alex Hale (Potter), worries about his obsession. Despite their divorce, she cares for him. Although he was not a good husband, Alex appreciates that Tanner was a good father. Their profound grief has forged in them an unbreakable bond.
Episode #13 — The Tipping Point
Cavanaugh investigates the murder of a top Sophe user who filled his basement with conspiracy theory evidence. Also, Alex attends the release hearing for Carlos Ochoa (Ramses Jimenez), the man convicted of killing Mia.
First aired: January 14, 2018.
