CBS’s fall 2018-2019 primetime lineup will include the premiere of the new dramatic series, FBI, which they’re introducing with a four-minute trailer. The network’s given the drama a fighting chance by awarding it a Tuesday night spot at 9pm ET/PT in between NCIS and NCIS: New Orleans beginning September 25, 2018.
The cast is led by Missy Peregrym (Ten Days in the Valley, Rookie Blue) as Maggie Bell, Zeeko Zaki (Valor, 24: Legacy) as Omar Adom “OA” Zidan, Jeremy Sisto (The Long Road Home) as Jubal Valentine, and Ebonée Noel (Still Star-Crossed) as Kristen Chazal.
The crime drama comes from prolific series creator Dick Wolf. Wolf’s responsible for the Law & Order franchise as welll as the popular Chicago shows, Chicago P.D., Chicago Med, and Chicago Fire. Wolf, Craig Turk, Arthur W. Forney, and Peter Jankowski executive produce, and Niels Arden Oplev (Flatliners) directed and executive produced the pilot. Oplev also directed the pilot episodes of Under the Dome, Game of Silence, and Midnight, Texas.
The Plot: FBI is a fast-paced drama about the inner workings of the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. These first-class agents bring all their talents, intellect and technical expertise to tenaciously investigate cases of tremendous magnitude, including terrorism, organized crime and counterintelligence, in order to keep New York and the country safe.
