A fresh scripted series this fall (intentionally made for a U.S. network) is almost as rare as a camera-shy Kardashian, but this offbeat NBC procedural would be worth a look in any season, with a charismatic star in Law & Order alum Jesse L. Martin and an intriguing premise. He plays Alec Mercer, a professor and expert in behavior science who helps authorities figure out why people do inexplicable and often criminal things. The opener poses the question: “Why would somebody confess to a murder he didn’t commit?”
