NEXT - SERIES PREMIERE

Silicon Valley pioneer Paul LeBlanc discovers that one of his own creations -- a powerful A.I. called NEXT -- might spell doom for humankind, so he tries to shutter the project, only to be kicked out of the company by his own brother, leaving him with nothing but mounting dread about the fate of the world. When a series of unsettling tech mishaps points to a potential worldwide crisis, LeBlanc joins forces with Special Agent Shea Salazar, whose strict moral code and sense of duty have earned her the respect of her team. Now, LeBlanc and Salazar are the only ones standing in the way of a potential global catastrophe, fighting an emergent super intelligence that, instead of launching missiles, will deploy the immense knowledge it has gleaned from the data to recruit allies, turn people against each other and eliminate obstacles to its own survival and growth.

DESCRIPTION:
(from FOX's press release, May 2020) From creator and executive producer Manny Coto ("24: Legacy"), executive producer Charlie Gogolak ("This Is Us") and executive producers and directors John Requa and Glenn Ficarra ("This Is Us"), NEXT is a propulsive, fact-based thriller about the emergence of a deadly, rogue artificial intelligence that combines pulse-pounding action with a layered examination of how technology is invading our lives. The event series stars Emmy Award nominee John Slattery ("Mad Men") as a Silicon Valley pioneer, who discovers that one of his own creations - a powerful A.I. - might spell global catastrophe. He teams up with a cybercrime agent (Fernanda Andrade, "The First") to fight a villain unlike anything we've ever seen - one whose greatest weapon against us is ourselves. The series also stars Michael Mosley ("Ozark"), Jason Butler Harner ("Ozark"), Eve Harlow ("Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."), Aaron Moten ("Mozart in the Jungle"), Gerardo Celasco ("How to Get Away with Murder"), Elizabeth Cappuccino ("Jessica Jones") and Evan Whitten (THE RESIDENT).
