not totally sci-fi, no superheroes, but i suppose any series about a cop who is blinded in the course of duty and comes back to the force, using his 4 other senses to "see" things his fellow officers doesn't and solve crimes could be interesting.
A heist gone wrong. A gunman with an
AK-47. Three officers trapped without ammo. His partner frozen in fear, Detective Jim Dunbar – without hesitation—took action of intense bravery that killed the gunman, saved the officers and made him a hero. He also took a bullet that blinded him forever.
Most officers injured in the line of duty opt for desk jobs or early retirement. Not Dunbar. He's rehabilitated both body and attitude and fought his way back to active duty. His fresh start at a new precinct is threatened by the simple truth that no one really wants him to work there. His new partner, Karen Bettencourt, sure as hell doesn't trust him to cover her back. They're all in for the shock of their lives, because being blind makes Dunbar a better cop than he ever has been.
Steven Bochco's new drama stars "ER's" Ron Eldard as Dunbar, and tackles the issue of handicapped employees head-on. Unique visual effects give us a window on what Dunbar "sees" with his remaining senses, as he learns to be a better cop and a better man. He has a long way to go to conquer his demons, but at least he's back on the streets.
The series is produced by Paramount Network TV and Steven Bocho Productions ("NYPD Blue").
