According to Spoiler TV, the three precogs in question are siblings Agatha, and younger twin siblings Arthur and Dash, who are closely monitored by researchers in the year 2040. More than 10 years later, in 2054, the 30-something-year-old siblings are estranged, specifically Arthur, as he no longer is with his twin and his sister. However, his twin, Dash, believes that his brother is nearby and wants to be reunited with him. Because of several circumstances and because he also wants to prevent the crimes and murders that he knows will be happening, he ends up working  with Detective Lara Vega, and together, they try to prevent the worst from happening to others.

Minority Report is adapted from a short story by Philip K. Dick, the mind behind Blade Runner, Total Recall and several other science fiction classics.

According to Deadline, the pilot has a director, in the person of Mark Mylod, who also directed the pilots of ABC’s Once Upon a Time and Showtime’s The Affair.
