‘FBI’ is an American crime drama television series that airs on CBS. The series first premiered on September 25, 2018. The show has been created by Dick Wolf of ‘Law and Order‘ and ‘Chicago’ fame and Craig Turk.
It is basically a procedural drama where we see how the Federal Bureau of Investigation works, specifically the inner workings of the New York office. We witness the skills, resourcefulness, and intellect of the agents, not to mention the cutting edge technology that they have access to, and they use, in order to keep New York and the rest of the USA safe.
Shows on law enforcement agencies are a dime a dozen. People are always interested to know how agents work, and their lives are often romanticized on screen. Think of them as the modern-day gunslinger, a hero straight out of the Westerns but with the emotional range that we have come to expect in modern day shows. There are several series centered around the FBI, be it ‘Criminal Minds‘ or the more recent ‘Quantico‘.
Anyhow, most of these shows are formulaic enough in their approach and make a difference based on the ingenuity of the cast members. Irrespective of this, they always manage to draw fans who simply cannot seem to get enough of criminals and the agencies in place to stop them. The same holds true for ‘FBI’, which has a solid fan following and critics, too, have praised Wolf’s latest venture, while drawing comparisons to his previous works, saying, “Dick Wolf’s new series sports a compelling cast and adrenaline-spiking spectacle, although some viewers may find this retread of the mega-producer’s previous procedural formulas overly familiar”.
FBI Cast: Who is in it?
The main cast of ‘FBI’ includes an ensemble cast. Missy Peregrym appears as Maggie Bell, an FBI agent who is also the widow of an investigative reporter for the Wall Street Journal. It is evident that investigative instincts are a part of this character. Zeeko Zaki plays the role of Omar Adom “O. A.” Zidan, an ex-soldier who is Maggie’s partner.
For those of you who have watched ‘Bones‘, it is not surprising to see a lot of soldiers coming back and joining law enforcement agencies, not just because they want to keep serving the nation, but also because it is a good way out of having to return to a complete civilian lifestyle, which plenty of soldiers find difficult. Jeremy Sisto is seen as Jubal Valentine, the FBI assistant special agent in charge. Ebonée Noel plays the role of Kristen Chazal, an FBI analyst. Sela Ward is seen in the role of Dana Mosier, the team’s supervisor and the FBI special agent in charge.
