CBS has a new show hitting your television screen this week. Intelligence is about a former member of the elite Delta Force who becomes the greatest asset of the United States government. He had a computer chip put into his head that allows him to access information databases, satellite feeds, and much more.


Josh Holloway (Gabriel), Meghan Ory (Riley) and Marg Helgenberger (Director Lillian Strand) spoke with reporters this summer about Intelligence. Check out the video interview and highlights.
