Josh Holloway is headed back to the small screen.

The actor, beloved for his role as Sawyer on Lost, will headline Intelligence on CBS, a drama based on a novel by John Dixon.

According to Deadline, Holloway will portray Gabriel Black, an ex-Navy SEAL and current intelligence officer on a series that centers on U.S. Cyber Command. It especially focuses on one agent with a very unique gift: a microchip implanted in his head that allows him to access the full electromagnetic spectrum.
