DESCRIPTION: (from TNT's press release, November 2014) TNT's fascinating drama Perception features one of the most unique crime solvers on television, an eccentric neuroscience professor who is recruited by the FBI to help solve complex cases. Emmy(R) and Screen Actors Guild Award(R) winner Eric McCormack stars as Dr. Daniel Pierce, who possesses an intimate knowledge of human behavior and a masterful understanding of the way the mind works. Although Pierce's mind may be brilliant, it's also damaged as he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. Rachael Leigh Cook stars as FBI agent Kate Moretti, Pierce's former student who has recruited Pierce to consult on cases. Also starring are Arjay Smith, Kelly Rowan and LeVar Burton. In addition, Scott Wolf (Party of Five, V, Everwood) is joining the cast as a regular this season, playing Donnie, Kate's ex-husband. Perception, which ranked as one of basic cable's Top 15 series of 2013, was created by Ken Biller and Michael Sussman, who also serve as executive producers. The series is produced by ABC Studios, with McCormack also serving as producer.
