Part of CBS 2014-2015 lineup for this fall, “Scorpion” is an upcoming cyber drama series inspired by a true to life story of a genius, Walter O’Brien. From executive producer Nick Satora (“Prison Break” and “Vegas”) and Nicholas Wootton (“NYPD Blue”), the new series revolves around an eccentric cyber genius who recruits other geniuses to form a group as the country’s last line of defense against cyber threats.

To fill the void left by “Numbers,” CBS is back once again with a show that features the complicated but interesting world of geniuses. “Game of Thrones” star Elyes Gabel will play as Walter O’Brien, a young savvy braniac who is trying to save the world with the help of his friends who understands the same language.

According to a synopsis posted on Hitfix: “Walter O'Brien ("Game of Thrones's" Elyes Gabel) leads a think tank of young braniacs trying to make the world a better place. But when LAX's mainframe is mysteriously hacked and 56 airborne flights are in danger of crashing like in "Die Hard II: Die Harder," O'Brien and his crew are recruited by a no-nonsense Homeland Security agent ("Die Hard II: Die Harder's" Robert Patrick) to help. They set up shop in a diner, where a waitress (Katharine McPhee) and her secret genius son also pitch in."

To be aired on Monday nights at 9 PM, “Scorpion” also stars Katherine McPhee as Paige Dineen, Robert Patrick as Agent Cabe Gallo, Eddie Kaye Thomas as Toby Vurtis, Jadyn Wong as Happy Quinn and Ari Stidham as Sylvester Dodd.

Born in London, and has lived in Canada, Bristol and Manchester, Gabel played the part of Dothraki “Bloodrider” Rakharo in HBO’s epic fantasy series “Game of Thrones.” His TV work also includes playing the lead character in “Body of Proof” season 3 as Detective Adam Lucas. Film credits include Brad Pitt’s “World War Z,” “Widow Detective,” post-production “Interstellar” and currently filming “A Most Violent War.”

“Scorpion” will join the networks newest series including Tea Leoni’s political drama series “Madam Secretary,” Halle Berry’s “Extant,” Dylan McDermott’s “Stalker” and a new comedy series “The McCarthys.”
