The Finder Premieres Thursday, January 12th on Fox

The Finder (Fox)

The Finder premieres tomorrow, Thursday January 12th, at 9 PM (ET/PT) on Fox.

Geoff Stults stars as Iraqi war veteran Walter Sherman, who gained a reputation in his army days as being the go-to guy for tracking down insurgents and deserters and finding improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Unfortunately one IED found Walter before he could find it, resulting in severe brain damage with a lasting and unexpected effect. Walter transformed from someone skilled at the standard recovery of people and things to someone much more extraordinary: a Finder.

With this newly discovered "Finder Power," Walter locates almost anything for just about anyone. Once he's on a case, there's no turning back until he's found exactly what he's looking for — whether that's a dead body, a missing father, a guitar pick, a murder weapon or a pair of lucky socks.

Michael Clarke Duncan stars as Walter's legal advisor and brother-in-arms Leo Knox. He owns the ramshackle Ends of the Earth bar on Looking Glass Key, which also serves as a makeshift office and home base for Walter.

Because of his rare skills, Walter is often asked to find a person or a thing that law enforcement either will not or cannot find. Walter's occasional social ineptitude, general paranoia and case-related tunnel vision make him somewhat difficult to work with, but thanks to the help and guidance of Leo, as well as the grateful friends and connections he has made through his work, he ultimately finds meaning in his own life by finding someone or something other people have lost.

In the opening episode titled "An Orphan Walks Into A Bar", a teen asks Walter to locate his father, who went missing after his plane vanished in the Florida wilderness. Meanwhile, Leo tries to make a paroled juvenile delinquent feel at home at the Ends of the Earth; and Walter helps Creedence Clearwater Revival's John Fogerty recover a stolen guitar.

Based on a character created by Richard Greener, author of "The Locator" suspense thrillers, Walter Sherman was introduced on an episode of Bones last season. Watch a short preview for this new series below.
