The drama centers on U.S. Cyber Command, a unit that has been created around one agent with a very special gift: a microchip that has been implanted in his brain that allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum.
Holloway will star as Gabriel Black, a former Navy SEAL and dedicated intelligence officer.
North Country‘s Michael Seitzman will pen the pilot and executive produce the drama alongside No Ordinary Family‘s David Semel, who will also direct. Tripp Vinson is also on board to executive produce the ABC Studios/CBS Television Studios co-production.
