Though LIMITLESS started off with a Bradley Cooper-led film (and Cooper’s character, Edward Mora will appear on the show, occasionally), the television series will explore the story of a different character: Jake McDorman’s Brian Finch.

And at Comic-Con, the producers of LIMITLESS didn’t shy away from the CBS drama’s potential comparison to the other, more traditional, superhero shows on television right now.

“It’s a very grounded way to do a superhero show,” executive producer Heather Kadin acknowledged in the video below.

“There’s no question you could say it’s similar to superhero shows, or you could say it is a superhero show,” Craig Sweeny added. “There is a genre MacGuffin as part of the show…and we’ll touch on those tropes…I think we’re essentially doing an origin story.”

Check out what else Sweeny, Kadin, and pilot director/executive producer Marc Webb had to say about the new show, including expanding the roles of McDorman’s on-screen parents (played fabulously in the pilot by Ron Rifkin and Blair Brown), and how the show is tackling drug use…
