Recently the first promo for Fox’s new series, Minority Report, was shown where we see the series picking up right where the feature film of the same name by Steven Spielberg had left off. Now Fox has given another promo which offers us more details on this science fiction crime series
Ten years following the movie we see police still using all sorts of advanced technology to fight and solve crimes, but this time without the precog program. Detective Lara Vega (Megan Good) encounters a former precog named Dash (Stark Sands) who has lived as far “off the grid” as possible, but has returned due to his now missing twin brother, Arthur (Nick Zano) which is causing Dash to experience distressing precognitive visions.
Fox is still keeping Arthur in hiding, even after adding Zano to the cast. (Sands had previously played both precog brothers.) But this new Minority Report featurette reveals a bit more of the show’s approach to science fiction, crime, and adventure.

“Minority Report” follows the unlikely partnership between a man haunted by the future and a cop haunted by her past, as they race to stop the worst crimes of the year 2065 before they happen. Set in Washington, D.C., it is 10 years after the demise of Precrime, a law enforcement agency tasked with identifying and eliminating criminals…before their crimes were committed. To carry out this brand of justice, the agency used three precogs – “precognitives” Dash, Arthur and Agatha – who were able to see the future.
Now, crime-solving is different, and justice leans more on sophisticated and trusted technology than on the instincts of the precogs. Precog Dash (Stark Sands, Inside Llewyn Davis) – driven by his terrifying, but fragmented visions – now has returned in secret to help a brash, but shrewd, police detective, Lara Vega (Meagan Good, Think Like a Man, “Californication”), attempt to stop the murders that he predicts. As they navigate this future America, they will search for Dash’s missing twin brother, Arthur, and elude others who will stop at nothing to exploit their precog abilities. Also complicating matters is Dash and Arthur’s ingenious, but reclusive, foster sister, Agatha (Laura Regan, “Mad Men,” Unbreakable), who just wants Dash to return home. A drama of crime and conspiracy, this is a timeless story of connection: two lost souls, Dash and Vega, who find friendship, purpose and redemption in each other.
