Henson, centers on an elite former CIA agent who teams with a shadowy billionaire to prevent violent crime before it happens. The well-capitalized vigilantes work outside the criminal-justice system but forge an advantageous link to the NYPD. Among the creative executives on the show with Abrams: "Lost" alum Bryan Burk and Oscar nominee Jonathan Nolan ("Memento," "The Dark Knight").
