New Minority Report Teaser Puts a Spin on the Police Procedural
A new teaser for Fox's adaptation of Steven Spielberg's Minority Report (in turn an adaptation of Philip K. Dick's short story) has been released, and it previews the show's fresh take on the police procedural drama:



The series takes place ten years after the fall of Precrime, the futuristic police department from the film that used the abilities of Precogs to predict and prevent crimes before they happened. Now, the Precogs are all but obsolete, but they still have a fragmented version of their gift, so protagonist Dash teams up with another Precog to prevent crimes and discover the meaning of their abilities. 

More details are provided in the full trailer, which came out last month:



Here's the official synopsis from Fox:

The future is coming. Based on the international blockbuster film by executive producer Steven Spielberg and the first of his films to be adapted for television, 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, in 2065, 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" franchise, "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.

Minority Report will have its world premiere at San Diego Comic Con, and will air on Fox this fall.
