From the island to U.S. intelligence — Lost alum Josh Holloway has scored the lead role in CBS’ drama pilot Intelligence, EW has confirmed.

Based on unpublished book Dissident by John Dixon, the show is about a U.S. intelligence unit whose top agent, Gabriel Black (Holloway), has some very special abilities — a microchip that has been implanted into his head allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum. The pilot script comes from Michael Seitzman (North Country) and will be directed by David Semel (No Ordinary Family).

Since wrapping up Lost in 2010, Holloway’s projects have included a guest appearance on Community and a role in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. Holloway was among the nine actors EW’s Lynette Rice listed as the most-wanted starts for new fall TV. Read the full list here.
