Limitless didn’t just become a TV series. It essentially became Limitless 2. Bradley Cooper appears in the pilot and his movie character, Eddie Morra, exists in this world. Morra is now running for president. The drug NZT has now fallen to Brian Sinclair (Jake McDorman), who uses it in conjunction with the FBI. When Brian has enhanced brain functions while taking NZT, he teams up with an FBI agent (Jennifer Carpenter) to use his powers as their resource.
The movie was adapted for television by Craig Sweeny, who’s joined by producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the screenwriting/producing team behind movies like Transformers and Star Trek, and shows like Fringe and Alias. Kurtzman was alone at the Television Critics Association party over the summer, but I was able to get his undivided attention to ask about Limitless, the upcoming Mummy movie reboot he’s directing, and some of his other shows on CBS. Limitless premieres Tuesday, September 22 at 10PM on CBS. Hit the jump to read our Alex Kurtzman Limitless interview.

Any true horror fan or cinephile knows what ties the iconic horror films Psycho and Halloween together. But for those who may not be aware, we’ll enlighten you.
The 1960 film from Alfred Hitchcock stars Janet Leigh as Marion Crane while the 1978 slasher from John Carpenter stars Jamie Lee Curtis. The former was one of the earliest scream queens in cinema’s history while the latter gained the status in the 70s and 80s, only to reprise it in the late 90s with Halloween: H20. But their real link is that Janet Leigh is Jamie Lee Curtis’ mother.
