René Echevarria will be putting his magic touch on a new CBS project…
The Cuban American producer/writer has joined CBS’ drama pilot Intelligence as an executive producer/showrunner.
Echevarria will be joining forces with creator/executive producer Michael Seitzman in running the series for ABC Studios and CBS Television Studios.
Based on John Dixon’s unpublished book Dissident, Intelligence, which stars Josh Holloway, is centered at U.S. Cyber Command and focuses on a unit that has been created around one agent with a very special gift — a microchip has been implanted in his brain allowing him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum.
In addition to Holloway, the pilot will feature James Martinez as a “muscular federal investigator.”
The Emmy-nominated Echevarria’s credits include serving as executive producer/showrunner on Fox’s Terra Nova. He also co-created USA’s The 4400 and worked on the Jessica Alba-starrer Dark Angel, Teen Wolf, Medium and Castle.
