LIMITLESS: SEASON ONE

Arrives On DVD + Digital Packed With

Behind-The-Scenes Special Features And Cast Interviews


 

 

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – Based on the blockbuster feature film of the same name, LIMITLESS: SEASON ONE arrives on DVD + Digital September 6 from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution.

The fast-paced drama follows Brian Finch (Jake McDorman), an average New Yorker who takes a mysterious NZT pill and unlocks 100 percent of his brain capacity. Once the FBI becomes aware of his extraordinary cognitive abilities, Brian then becomes their secret weapon while investigating seemingly unsolvable cases.

LIMITLESS: SEASON ONE also stars Jennifer Carpenter (“Dexter”) as FBI Special Agent Rebecca Harris, a tough investigator with a dark past, and Hill Harper (“CSI: NY”) as Agent Spelman Boyle, a former military officer and Rebecca’s confidante. Brian utilizes his enhanced abilities to help both Rebecca and Spelman during their investigations of murder, treason and human trafficking. Unbeknownst to the FBI, Brian has connections to
Senator Edward Morra (Bradley Cooper), a presidential hopeful and regular user of NZT who has plans of his own for Brian. Now, with a regular supply of the brain-enhancing drug, Brian is the Bureau’s greatest asset and every criminal’s worst nightmare.

I n addition to all 22 episodes, LIMITLESS: SEASON ONE also features nearly an hour of exclusive material that brings fans closer to the action-packed drama. With “Big Screen To Small Screen: Launching Limitless For Television,” executive producers Alex Kurtzman, Bradley Cooper, Craig Sweeny, Marc Webb and Heather Kadin discuss the compelling cast and the challenges faced when bringing the hit film to the small screen.

The cast and crew touch on the unique camera techniques used to highlight key characters, as well as the thematic style in both the film and series in “The Style Of Limitless.” With a focus on the show’s creative process and Brian’s hyper abilities when using NZT, “More Of Who You Are” features commentary from LIMITLESS writers and producers.

In “Brian Presents,” fans get an exclusive look at the concepts and props used to create some of Brian’s most quirky and creative investigative ideas from the season. In addition, the DVD + Digital combo pack includes a must-see cast gag reel.

The Best Buy exclusive bonus disc includes additional special features such as an intimate look at the creation of the set in “Designing Limitless: Set Tour with Sarah Frank;” interviews with producers about the use of comics when creating the backstory of Jarrod Sands (Colin Salmon) in “Graphic Arts;” “Eddie Morra Visits Limitless,” featuring a discussion with stars Jake McDorman and Bradley Cooper; and a glimpse of the cast at Comic-Con International: San Diego in “Limitless at Comic-Con.”
