UPFRONT: INTELLIGENCE With Josh Holloway as “The Six Billion Dollar Man” to Air in 2014 on CBS

Update: Production moves to Los Angeles to film the series. Pilot shot in Vancouver.

CBS dubbed its new filmed-in-Vancouver pilot Intelligence “The Six Billion Dollar Man” today, a play on the 1970s hit The Six Million Dollar Man about an American government agent Steve Austin (Lee Majors) with bionic parts. It’s an apt comparison.

Intelligence is about an American government agent Gabriel (Josh Holloway from Lost) with a super-computer microchip in his brain, one that makes him the smartest smart phone ever. Unfortunately this human with an ability to hack into anything is also reckless and unpredictable so the head of the government cyber-security agency Lillian Strand (Marg Helgenberger of CSI) assigns secret service agent Riley Neal (Meghan Ory from Once Upon a Time) to protect him from himself and others.
