FOX’s ‘Minority Report,’ ‘Lucifer’ and More Pilots Leak
As CBS’ Supergirl and others caught the brunt of earlier this year, TV’s pilot season has been increasingly difficult to keep under wraps, assuming you trust the veracity of “leaks” to begin with. In any case, FOX’s Minority Report and Lucifer, along with NBC’s Blindspot and others have officially become the latest victims.
Per Deadline, FOX’s DC-based Lucifer found itself with about 150 different links through piracy channels by Monday, just slightly edged out by FOX’s Minority Report (notable as not having been delivered to critics like other pilots). Additionally, Thor star Jaimie Alexander’s tattooed NBC drama Blindspot appears to have made its way to the web, while other reports claim The Carmichael Show has similarly been exposed.
In any case, the new iteration of the Spielberg sci-fi drama centers on Lara Vega (Meagan Good), a detective who partners with former Pre-Cog Dash (Stark Sands), who despite his attempt to lead a normal life is haunted by visions of the future after PreCrime’s end. The series also stars That ‘70s Show alum Wilmer Valderrama as Detective Will Blake, Nick Zano, and was penned by Godzilla writer Max Borenstein and directed by Mark Mylod.
Meanwhile, executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Sleepy Hollow EP Len Wiseman under writer Tom Kapinos (Californication), FOX’s Lucifer features Tom Ellis as the bored and unhappy Lord of Hell, who he resigns the throne and abandons his kingdom for the “gorgeous, shimmering insanity of Los Angeles,” helping the LAPD fight crime and punish criminals.
You’re welcome to scour the internet for said pilots on your own, but how much stock should we place in these purported “leaks,” considering how difficult generating early buzz for a series can be? Minority Report premieres September 21, while Lucifer eyes a midseason bow, and you can check out the trailers below.
