The show centers around Elliot (Rami Malek), an anti-social young hacker who meets a mysterious anarchist named Mr. Robot (Slater) who attempts to recruit him into an underground hacking ring hellbent on bringing down destroying corporate America.
Slater previously starred on ABC’s “Mind Games,” a show about two brothers who run a problem-solving firm employing psychological manipulation. It was canceled in March after airing only five episodes and the network instead used the time-slot to air reruns of its supernatural drama “Resurrection.”
As TheWrap previously reported, the actor starred on other short-lived TV dramas including Fox’s “Breaking In” (2011-12), ABC’s “The Forgotten” (2009) and NBC’s “My Own Worst Enemy” (2008).
