Looks like TNT is really pushing the boundaries as far as television shows are concerned. Eric McCormack has officially signed on to star in a new series on the station. Simply titled Perception, the show will in no way have anything to do with Inception, Adaptation, or Californication.
Anyway, the plot revolves around “Dr. Geoffrey Pierce, an eccentric neuroscientist who uses his unique outlook to help the federal government solve complex cases. With an intimate knowledge of human behavior and a masterful understanding of the mind, this quirky, crime-solving professor pulls lessons from an odd and imaginative view of the world.” Which totally doesn’t sound at all like:
-CSI (the guy with the beard and his fascination with bugs)
-Rizzoli and Isles
-Every other procedural on TV ever.
