Based on an unpublished book, the series is about a U.S. Cyber Command unit created around a very special agent who has a microchip implanted in his brain that allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum.

Holloway, 43, will play Gabriel Black, a former Navy SEAL and dedicated intelligence officer in the project, which  is executive-produced by Seitzman with Tripp Vinson and David Semel, who will direct.

Following his star-making turn as Sawyer on Lost, Holloway co-starred in Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol and appeared on the epic, paintball-centric Season 2 finale of Community.
