Bradley Cooper is set to return to television with a recurring role in the upcoming CBS drama series “Limitless”.
The series is based on the 2011 movie in which Cooper himself played Eddie Mora, a man who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug NZT and uses it to his advantage.
In this follow-up series, Jake McDorman takes on the role of Brian Finch who discovers NZT and is coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them.
Unbeknownst to them, Brian has a clandestine relationship with the now Senator and presidential hopeful Eddie Mora (Cooper) who has his own plans for his protege.
Cooper guest stars in the pilot and will reportedly recur as much as his schedule permits. Cooper also executive produces the series alongside Craig Sweeny, Marc Webb, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Heather Kadin, Bradley Cooper, Todd Phillips, Ryan Kavanaugh, Tucker Tooley and Tom Forman.
