Tony Scott Crunches 'Numb3rs' Premiere
Series producer tackles fourth season opener
Scott and brother Ridley Scott have long served as producers on the mathematical CBS procedural through their Scott Free banner. The company's TV credits also include Showtime's "The Hunger," for which Tony Scott directed several episodes.
CBS boasts that "Scott's episode will serve as a template that freshens up the production values of the show for the fourth season." The episode will pick up with last season's finale revelation that Dylan Bruno's Agent Granger was a mole. That news will continue to ripple through the premiere.
The "Numb3rs" premiere has been scheduled for Friday, Sept. 28. In its third season, "Numb3rs" regularly won its Friday night slot, averaging 10.5 million viewers per night.
Scott's feature directing credits include "Deja Vu," "True Romance" and "Top Gun."
