NUMBERS also stars Peter MacNicol ("Ally McBeal"), Judd Hirsch ("Taxi"), Sabrina Lloyd ("Sports Night") and Alimi Ballard ("Dark Angel") and represents the first dramatic television series from three-time Academy Award nominated director Ridley Scott ("Black Hawk Down," "Gladiator") and Tony Scott (Emmy Award winners for the "The Gathering Storm").
Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Alex Gansa and Brooke Kennedy are the executive producers for Scott Free in association with Paramount Network Television. Cheryl Heuton, Nick Falacci and David Zucker are co-executive producers. Hueton and Falacci co-created the series and wrote the pilot.
