Watch Preview Of New J.J. Abrams CBS Series "Person Of Interest" Co-Starring Taraji P. Henson

Well… we know Taraji P. Henson is the female lead in this, playing an NYPD homicide detective, but she’s nowhere to be found in the below 3 1/2-minute first-look at the crime-thriller series, which CBS picked up to debut this fall, Thursdays nights at 9 p.m.

Titled Person Of Interest, the new series was created by wunderkind producer/director J.J. Abrams, maybe one of the busiest men in Hollywood right now, with the myriad of projects he has in hands in, both in film and television. Christopher Nolan’s younger brother, Jonah Nolan, already famous in his own right for co-writing both The Dark Knight and The Prestige, co-developed the project.

The crime-drama focuses on James Caviezel’s character, an ex-CIA agent presumed dead who’s aid is enlisted by Michael Emerson’s mysterious billionaire, to fight crimes in New York City.

Watch the preview below… just don’t look for Taraji.
