Malcolm Bright is a gifted criminal psychologist, using his twisted genius to help the NYPD solve crimes and stop killers, all while dealing with a manipulative mother, a serial killer father still looking to bond with his prodigal son and his own constantly evolving neuroses. Bright’s only ally is his sister, Ainsley, a TV journalist who wishes her brother would take a break from murder and have a normal life. Unfortunately for his sister, the only way Bright feels normal is by solving cases with the help of his longtime mentor, NYPD Detective Gil Arroyo. Arroyo’s one of the best detectives around, and he expects no less from his team, which includes Detective JT Tarmel, a born-and-bred New Yorker who questions whether Bright is a psychopath himself (Wikipedia).
Season 1 Episode 1 is titled “Pilot” Here is the synopsis from TV Guide: “The series premiere. Malcolm Bright knows how killers think and how their minds work, because his father, Dr. Martin Whitley, was one of the most notorious serial killers, called “The Surgeon.” Alongside his longtime mentor, Gil Arroyo, and detectives Dani Powell and JT Tarmel, he helps the NYPD solve crimes by profiling killers, while also dealing with a manipulative mother, an annoyingly normal sister, and a homicidal father still looking to bond with his prodigal son.”
