Jennifer Carpenter and her former Dexter co-star Desmond Harrington will be reunited on her new CBS drama LIMITLESS – and they’ll be wading in very familiar waters.
A continuation of the 2011 film starring Bradley Cooper, the series follows a man named Brian Finch (Jake McDorman), who discovers the brain-boosting power of the drug NZT and is coerced by the FBI into using his abilities to solve complex cases for them alongside Special Agent Rebecca Harris (Carpenter). Harrington will play Casey Rooks, a Special Agent with FBI SWAT who has a background in martial arts, combat sports, and meditation.
While he’s assigned to give Brian basic training, he will keep a close eye on him in order to uncover his secret. But Casey has a secret of his own: his ongoing affair with Brian’s boss, Agent Harris. Harrington, who also played Carpenter’s love interest Det. Quinn on Dexter, will appear in one episode, with the potential to recur.
LIMITLESS premieres Sept. 22 on CBS.
