Television show accurate in surveillance predictions

  • Print

PASADENA, Calif. -- A producer of TV's Person Of Interest says revelations about government surveillance have proved early doubters about the drama wrong.

Producer Jonathan Nolan said the show, in which an all-seeing machine is used to prevent crime, was labeled far-fetched by some observers when it debuted.

But after former National Security Agency analyst Edward Snowden's revelations about secret government surveillance programs, there was a brief period of gloating at Person of Interest, Nolan said.

As Nolan told TV reporters Wednesday, the NSA disclosures have "validated our decision to wear tinfoil hats."

Person of Interest, in its third season on CBS, stars Michael Emerson and Jim Caviezel.
