‘neXt’ is a thriller series based on the theme of artificial intelligence going rogue, leading to unprecedented dangerous consequences. With no regard for ethics, emotions, damages or loss of life, eponymous AI’s only aim is self-preservation. The story revolves around a brilliant but paranoid former tech CEO Paul LeBlanc (John Slattery) and Shea Salazar (Fernanda Andrade), a Homeland Cybersecurity Agent. Paul joins Shea and her team “to stop the world’s first artificial intelligence crisis: the emergence of a rogue AI with the ability to continuously improve itself”. The AI always seems to be a step ahead in this fight, given the human over-dependence on digital technologies. ‘neXt’ draws inspiration from the concerns raised about the rise of AI by Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk and has been created by Manny Coto, who also serves as the executive producer for the series.
