One of the craziest movies in recent years is on its way to becoming one of the craziest shows of the Fall 2015 season.
A drama series based on Bradley Cooper’s 2011 action film Limitless — in which his character, Brian Sinclair, harnessed “limitless” abilities via a mysterious drug known as NZT — has been given a pilot production commitment by CBS, our sister site Deadline reports.
The pilot, which picks up after the events of the movie, is being executive-produced by Cooper, Todd Phillips, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci.
