In this drama from producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the FBI has hired biophysicist Dr. Jacob Hood (Rufus Sewell) as a special science advisor to the government. Representing the last line of defense from scientific crises and oddities, Hood pursues those who exploit findings and developments. Hood's personal beliefs play a role in his mission to safeguard science from those who plan to abuse it. Executive producer Ethan Reiff hinted recently at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour that as the series progresses Hood's faith will be explored in relation to a past loss.
"Eleventh Hour" will air Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT, starting Oct. 9 on CBS.
