The new FOX series Minority Report had its panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday. The show takes place 10 years after the end of Pre-crime in D.C. The show is a direct sequel to the 2002 film by Steven Spielberg, and follows Dash (Stark Sands), a young precog, and younger brother to Agatha (Laura Regan), played by Samantha Morton in the film. The precogs have been sent into a sort of witness protection program and have been sheltered from the world. Dash is trying to lead a normal life while trying to deal with his visions of the future. He meets a detective named Lara Vega (Meagan Good), who was in Pre-crime training, and found it canceled as soon as she was ready to go. They form an alliance to help stop crime.

At the panel, Fox showed the first 20 minutes of the pilot, which gave us a look at future tech, introduced the characters and gave us a look at what this procedural will be all about. Then there was a Q&A with Regan, Sands, Good, Wilmer Valderrama who plays detective Will Blake, boss of Good’s Vega, and executive producers Darryl Frank, Max Borestein and Kevin Falls.
