J.J. Abrams and Jonah Nolan are teaming up to prevent future crimes. CBS has just ordered a pilot of their drama Person of Interest, about an "an ex-CIA hitman and a scientist who team up to prevent crimes before they happen." Nolan wrote the pilot, and both he and Abrams will stay on as exec producers. Sounds good, but can this new scientist measure up to the legacy of TV awesome that is Fringe's Walter Bishop? Via THR.
