The show, from Kyle Killen ("Awake," "Lone Star"), is about two brothers who run an agency that applies lessons in psychology and motivation to get its clients what they want. Slater's character is a smart and charming ex-con just out of prison after serving time for fraud. Zahn, his brother, is a genius who brings the science to their venture.
Slater has fronted a few TV series in recent years, but none has broken through. He was most recently on Fox's canceled-revived-then canceled again comedy "Breaking In."
