CBS has announced the new premiere date for action thriller "Intelligence," which will have a special preview Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2014 (9-10:01 p.m.), following an original episode of "NCIS." It will premiere in its regular Monday at 10 p.m. time period Jan. 13.
"Intelligence" stars Josh Holloway as a high-tech intelligence operative enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain. With this implant, Gabriel is the first human ever to be connected directly into the global information grid. He can hack into any data center and access key intel in the fight to protect the U.S. from its enemies.
In her highly anticipated return to network television, Marg Helgenberger stars as Lillian Strand, the director of the elite government cyber-security agency who supports Gabriel and oversees the unit's missions.
Strand assigns Riley Neal (Meghan Ory), a Secret Service agent, to protect Gabriel from outside threats, as well as from his appetite for reckless, unpredictable behavior and disregard for protocol.
"Intelligence" also stars Michael Rady, John Billingsley and PJ Byrne. Michael Seitzman, Tripp Vinson and Barry Schindel are the executive producers for ABC Television Studios in association with CBS Television Studios.
"Hostages" will finish its 15-episode season with a special two-hour season finale Monday, Jan. 6 (9 p.m.).
