Preview – Instinct


Alan Cumming’s hit-CBS crime-drama series, Instinct, throws retired CIA operative turned best-selling author Dr. Dylan Reinhart back into the adrenaline-filled life of law-enforcement after a plucky, young NYPD officer enlists his help solving a bemusing case involving a serial killer. Bojana Novakovic co-stars alongside Cumming as Detective Lizzie Needham and the two leads are admirably supported by the likes of Daniel Ings, Naveen Andrews and Whoopi Goldberg.

In the pilot episode, broadcast on Sky Witness tonight, we meet Dr. Dylan Reinhart – a former CIA operative who has ditched crime-fighting for a quieter and more stable life as an author and university professor as per the request of his now-husband, Andy. When a tenacious cop, Lizzie Needham, asks for his help in solving a string of serial killings which seem to take inspiration from his book on gambling, Dylan finds himself tapping back into his skills from his time in the secret service as he returns to the frontlines.


Instinct – Thursday 9:00pm on Sky Witness.
