New Limitless Promo Hints at Hero's Many Mad, NZT-Enhanced Skills

Forget the whole “playing chicken with a subway car” thing. The mystery pill at the heart of CBS’ new Limitless drama also can help you get in some wicked licks on a guitar, and maybe get the girl along the way.

Premiering Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 10/9c, the follow-up to the 2011 movie of the same name finds Bradley Cooper’s NZT-enhanced politician, Edward Mora, entrusting a slacker named Brian (Shameless‘ Jake McDorman) with the powers of the mystery drug that affords access to “every brain cell.”

As seen in the new promo above — which does a riff on the famous 1980s egg-in-a-frying pan anti-drug campaign — Brian not only can gauge just how far he can drop from a fire escape (which you have to admit is a pretty specific skill), but he excels in many other, fun ways.

Watch the new promo then tell us: Will you sample Limitless?
