ITV2 in the UK has acquired new US drama Scorpion.
The series, which launched on CBS on September 22 to 13.8 million viewers, is inspired by the true story of eccentric genius Walter O’Brien and his team of brilliant misfits who comprise the last line of defence against complex, high-tech threats.
It stars Elyes Gabel, Robert Patrick, and Katharine McPhee.
Scorpion is distributed by CBS Studios International. It will launch on ITV2 later this autumn.
