Limitless is an American crime drama television series starring Jake McDorman based on the film of the same name, which in turn was based on the novel The Dark Fields, and takes place after the events of the movie. The series premiered on CBS on September 22, 2015.
Brian Finch's life takes an extraordinary turn when he discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug, NZT, that allows him to access his full brain capacity and is coerced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them. Working closely with Brian in the major case squad in New York City is Agent Rebecca Harris, a formidable investigator with a dark past, and Agent Boyle, a former military officer and Rebecca's confidante. They report to Special Agent in Charge Nasreen "Naz" Pouran, a canny manipulator of the reins of power. Unbeknownst to the FBI, Brian also has a clandestine relationship with Sen. Edward Morra, a presidential hopeful and regular user of NZT who has plans of his own for his new protégé. Fueled now with a steady supply of NZT that enables him to use 100% of his brain capacity, Brian is more effective than all of the FBI agents combined, making him a criminal's worst nightmare and the greatest asset the Bureau has ever possessed.
