Actor Bradley Cooper is set to reprise his role from the 2011 thriller Limitless for a new CBS drama this fall of the same title.
According to Variety, the 40-year-old actor will appear in the first episode of the series, but may recur throughout the season, if his schedule allows. He will also serve as an executive producer on the series, which is being described as an “action-packed, fast-paced thrill-ride.”
Cooper will reprise his role as Eddie Mora, a man who discovers the mysterious drug NZT, which allows him to learn faster and recall memories from his past.
Jake McDorman, who appeared in Cooper’s record-breaking film American Sniper, will star in the series as Brian Finch, who newly discovers NZT and is coerced into using his new drug-enhanced abilities to solve weekly cases for the FBI.
Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter) has been tapped as the female lead.
Limitless will air on Tuesday this fall on CBS.
