Limitless to be Fast Tracked by Ten

Ten has confirmed that it will fasttrack Limitless to Australian screens.

Based on the hit 2011 feature film starring Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, Limitless is a fast-paced and compelling new drama about Brian Finch (Jake McDorman), a man who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious “smart” drug NZT. 

Fuelled with a steady supply of NZT, Brian is coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve its most difficult cases. When using NZT, Brian’s IQ increases to four digits and he possesses perfect recall of everything he has ever read, heard or seen. Brian quickly becomes more effective than every other FBI agent – and the greatest asset the Bureau has ever had.

 Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper is one of the Executive Producers of the new series and plays the recurring role of Senator Edward Mora, a Presidential hopeful with a mysterious connection to Brian.

 This exciting new series also stars Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter, The Exorcism of Emily Rose) as FBI Special Agent Rebecca Harris; Academy Award nominee Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio (Scarface, The Color of Money, The Abyss, The Perfect Storm) as FBI Special Agent-In-Charge Nasreen Pouran; and Hill Harper (CSI: NY, The Handler, Covert Affairs) as FBI Special Agent Spellman Boyle.

No word  on an air  date but it kicks off in the US next week.
