THE FINDER ~ COMING FROM FOX!

THE FINDER ~ COMING FROM FOX!

BONES HAS NEVER REALLY TOOTED MY HORN, BUT THIS SPIN-OFF, THE FINDER, JUST MIGHT . . .

PER OMNIMYSTERY NEWS . . .

Iraq war veteran Walter Sherman (Geoff Stults) gained a reputation while serving in the Army Military Police as someone who was very good at tracking down insurgents, deserters and improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Unfortunately, Walter found one IED just moments before it found him. Two months later, when Walter woke from his coma, he earned an honorable discharge and returned home. His resulting brain damage from the explosion transformed him from someone skilled at recovering people and things into something much more extraordinary: a Finder.

His first post-military assignment was to find the CIA head honcho’s missing daughter and bring her home. Walter did both, and since then has never been without an assignment. After settling in Key West, Walter met the beautiful and worldly Ike Latulippe (Saffron Burrows), a woman with a mysterious past and many hidden skills. She tends bar at The Ends of the Earth, which also serves as a makeshift office and home base for Walter. Walter helped Ike escape a dangerous life, and for that, she is eternally grateful.

Another island denizen dedicated to Walter is Leo Knox (Michael Clarke Duncan), once an obese lawyer who, after the deaths of his wife and children, completely reinvented himself into a gentle giant, philosopher and Walter’s legal advisor. Because of his skills, Walter is often asked to find a person or a thing that law enforcement either will not or cannot find. With the help of Ike and Leo, as well as a patchwork of indebted connections, he and his team ultimately find meaning in their own lives by finding something or someone other people have lost.

The Finder is scheduled to air as a mid-season replacement for Bones on Thursdays at 9 PM (ET/PT). Watch a preview for the series below.
