CBS’s “Wisdom of the Crowd” is a drama about a visionary tech innovator who creates a cutting-edge crowdsourcing app to solve his daughter’s murder, and revolutionize crime solving in the process.

Inspired by the notion that a million minds are better than one, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Jeffrey Tanner, develops “Sophe,” an online platform for publicly shared information he’s certain will find his daughter’s killer.

To assist him, Tanner recruits Det. Tommy Cavanaugh, the original cop who investigated the murder but was unceremoniously forced off the case. Working with them is Sara Morton, a brilliant engineer whose relationship with Tanner goes beyond professional; Josh Novak, a talented, nerdy-cool head programmer; and Tariq Bakari, a tech genius and expert hacker with issues adhering to the rules.

Concerned with Tanner’s obsession is his successful ex-wife, Congresswoman Alex Hale, with whom he shares an unbreakable bond over their shared grief. As Tanner taps into the “wisdom of the crowd,” his unexpected success fuels his determination to solve even more cases than just the one that’s personal to him.

“Wisdom of the Crowd” stars Jeremy Piven (Jeffrey Tanner), Richard T. Jones (Detective Tommy Cavanaugh), Natalia Tena (Sara Morton), Monica Potter (Alex Hale), Blake Lee (Josh Novak), and Jake Matthews (Tariq Bakari).

“Wisdom of the Crowd” is filmed in Los Angeles, Calif. It’s produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Universal Television. Ted Humphrey, Adam Davidson, Avi Nir, Alon Shtruzman, Peter Traugott, Rachel Kaplan; Dror Mishani and Shira Hadad serve as executive producers.
