A Sci-Fi drama series from NBC providing an update of the old Invisible Man storyline.
After being caught in a radiation explosion during an underwater salvage operation, hip, denim-clad special agent Sam Casey (Ben Murphy) is left invisible (not dead or irradiated then?).
When friend and coworker ‘Abby’ Lawrence (Katherine Crawford) is able to perfect a means to control his invisibility using a special DNA-stabilising watch, Casey – an agent and chief troubleshooter for the US government think tank facility known as INTERSECT – becomes a valuable secret weapon for the firm and is given the code name Minus One.
The only drawback is that Casey can only stay invisible for 15 minutes in any 24-hour period. If he exceeds this time allowance, he will disintegrate!
Convinced the explosion was the work of saboteurs, Casey, Abby and Driscoll (Richard Dysart) uncover a plot to execute wealthy Charles Royce (Paul Shenar), head of one of America’s largest industrial complexes (who had hired Casey for the salvage job).
The show itself disappeared after a single season, thanks to stiff competition from ABC and CBS.
