‘neXt’: Meet the Cast of the Fox Thriller About a Deadly A.I. (PHOTOS)
Fox is aiming to make you a bit wary of technology with its new crime thriller, neXt.
John Slattery’s Silicon Valley pioneer Paul LeBlanc teams up with Fernanda Andrade’s Special Agent Shea Salazar to fight a deadly, rogue Artificial Intelligence, and TV Insider has an exclusive first look at Paul, Shea, and the rest of the cast in the gallery photos below.
In the sci-fi drama, Paul’s focus on his innovations has led to him alienating those around him, including his daughter Abby (Elizabeth Cappuccino) and his short-sighted younger brother Ted (Jason Butler Harner). When Paul discovers an artificial intelligence he created (neXt) could doom humankind, he tries to shutter the project, only for Ted, who now runs the company, to kick him out.
That’s when he joins forces with Shea, whose team includes the high-strung cybercrime agent Gina (Eve Harlow), the buttoned-up hard worker Ben (Aaron Moten), and ex-con hacker with a genius IQ CM (Michael Mosley). Away from the office, Shea’s married to Ty (Gerardo Celasco), a recovering alcoholic who’s doing most of the raising of their son Owen (Evan Whitten).
neXt was created by Manny Coto, who serves as executive producer with John Requa, Glenn Ficarra and Charlie Gogolak. Requa and Ficarra also directed the pilot.
