"Pilot" - Former CIA operative Dr. Dylan Reinhart (Alan Cumming)
is lured back to his old life when NYPD detective Lizzie Needham (Bojana Novakovic)
needs his help to stop a serial killer, on the series premiere of INSTINCT, Sunday, March 18 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Alan Cumming, Bojana Novakovic, Daniel Ings, Naveen Andrews and Sharon Leal star in the drama based on the James Patterson novel.

Dr. Reinhart is a gifted author and university professor living a quiet life teaching psychopathic behavior to packed classes of adoring students. But when tenacious top NYPD detective Lizzie Needham appeals to him to help her catch a serial murderer who is using Dylan's first book as a tutorial, Dylan is compelled by the case and comes out of retirement. Helping them is Julian Cousins, Dylan's invaluable CIA comrade who rivals Dylan in brilliance and wit, and can get top-secret dirt on anyone, anywhere, anytime. Lizzie's boss, Lt. Jasmine Gooden, is glad to see her best detective finally agree to work with someone on a case, since Lizzie has refused any partner since a tragic event one year ago. As Dylan feels reenergized tapping into his old skill set, his husband, Andy, is concerned that Dylan's breaking their pact about putting away his cloak and dagger for good. Though Dylan and Lizzie initially clash, when it comes to catching killers, they realize they will make an ideal team if they both trust their instincts.
