02/11/2013 07:24 pm ET

Josh Holloway is heading to CBS with some of his fellow "Lost" alumni.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Holloway -- best known as Sawyer on the ABC island drama -- will star in "Intelligence" as Gabriel Black, a former Navy SEAL.

The drama pilot from "North Country's" Michael Seizman centers on U.S. Cyber Command, "a unit that has been created around one agent with a very special gift: a microchip that has been implanted in his brain that allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum," THR reports.

Two of Holloway's former "Lost" co-stars currently appear on CBS programs: Michael Emerson (Ben Linus) stars on "Person of Interest" and Daniel Dae Kim (Jin-Soo Kwon) is a regular on "Hawaii Five-O." Fingers crossed for a reunion!
