The Dead Zone

Created by Stephen King and developed for television by Michael and Shawn Piller, The Dead Zone follows teacher Johnny Smith (Anthony Michael Hall) who is involved in a car accident that leaves him comatose for approximately six years. It ran for six seasons (80 episodes) between 2002 and 2007.

Once he regains consciousness, Johnny begins having visions of the past and future triggered by touching items or people; doctors attribute the visions to activity in a previously unused “dead zone” of his brain that is attempting to compensate for the impaired function of the portions injured in the accident.

Furthermore, Johnny discovers that his fiancée, Sarah (Nicole de Boer), gave birth to his son in the interim following the accident, but has since married another man.

Once readjusted, Johnny teams up with Sarah, her husband Walt (Chris Bruno), and physical therapist Bruce (John L. Adams), Johnny begins using his abilities to help solve crimes. However, his attempts to do good are complicated by intermittent visions of apocalyptic events brought about following the future election of congressional candidate Greg Stillson (Sean Patrick Flanery).
