The Listener is Toby Logan (Craig Olejnik) a charismatic 30-year-old paramedic with a secret: All his life, he has been able to tune in the thoughts of others. Toby struggles with his abilities until he discovers, through a chance encounter with Sgt. Michelle McClusky of the Integrated Investigative Bureau (IIB), how his gift can help solve crimes. He joins IIB as a confidential informant and realizes his gift can help others in more ways than he imagined. Toby isn’t above having a little fun with his mind-reading skills, offering his buddy and EMT partner, Oz Bey, an edge with his playful exploits. After all, even adrenaline junkies need to cut loose once in a while.
