NEW YORK, September 21 (WNN) — dick wolf-produced FBI The franchise returns with a fast-paced, globe-trotting, three-show crossover event on CBS Tuesday night.
The FBI begins its fourth season with the Human Trafficking Case, which will continue for the next hour with the start of Season 3 FBI: Most Wanted, and then ends with the series premiere of FBI: International.
“The great thing about this is that we don’t solve it in time, so we have to get other teams involved. It’s a great story to tell.” [because it reveals] How far is the FBI’s reach and how much space do they have to achieve their goals,” said Jeremy Sisto, who plays Special Agent Jubal Valentine FBItold WNN in a recent phone interview.
Julian McMahon – who plays Jess LaCroix, leader of the fugitive task force FBI: Most Wanted – Tuesday’s programming block was compared to a three-hour film.
“It starts to build up in episode 1, which is the FBI show, so until you hit FBI: Most Wanted, it’s working. It’s going on,” McMahon teased.
“It was really funny, only to create a different kind of pace thematically. We wanted to continue this through episode 2 and then, literally, at the end of our episode, on a plane and off to Budapest wanted to be.”
Jubal has a habit of working with smart and skilled experts from different fields who help him solve cases using their respective specialties, so cooperating with agents from other offices in these first episodes of the season allows him to Do not get harassed or threatened in any way.
“He’s this brain at the center of it all, trying to figure out, ‘Who, what can we use? Sisto said.
“If we fail at this end, it is not the end of the road. [A suspect] went abroad or fled? Well, we have people for this,” he said. “It’s a fun and realistic story about one of the greatest crime-fighting and crime-fighting organizations of all time.”
Heida Reid plays special agent Jamie Kellett, who helps close the season premiere case International version of FBI.
“Jamie is second in command [of her unit], and she’s been working for the FBI abroad for some time. He has informers all over Europe and is super-quick in obtaining intelligence or information,” Reid said.
Despite the atrocities associated with her latest investigation, Jamie tries not to internalize what she sees, and she remains professional.
“She feels incredibly inspired to do justice to these girls and put this man and the men who worked with him behind bars,” Reid said.
McMahon thinks FBI The shows are so popular because they tell thrilling stories, depict what is happening in the world and offer perspectives from all sides.
“Real stories are hard to beat, so we take those little pieces and we incorporate them and we tell them in our own way,” he said.
“I like to be able to make a statement culturally about what we’re experiencing at the moment. Last year, when we started, we covered the whole COVID-19 situation, the Black Lives Matter situation, and the police officers engrossed in violence against.”
Working on the show has earned the actors appreciation from investigators and law enforcement personnel. It has also given them a glimpse of the personal toll that these jobs can take, especially when duty calls can disrupt whatever is scheduled for that day.
Sisto said, “They have to make this really big call and then go back to deal with their plans. It takes a certain kind of time. I wouldn’t be able to do that.”
“You have to have real faith in yourself. You have to have the ability to shut things down and divide,” he said. “Agents are accustomed to hearing about the worst things in humanity and not letting it completely destroy their day.”
McMahon said it’s fascinating to hear actual FBI agents, who serve as consultants on the franchise, talk about their experiences and investigative techniques.
“They invest themselves so much in this task and a lot of times, it’s even thankless, and then, at the end of the day, they still have to go home to their families and find a way to communicate with their wives. And kids,” he said. “It’s just shocking to me that people are actually actually doing this.”
“It has been really eye-opening for me to be part of an organization like the FBI and realize how much work and dedication goes into defending America, not only in America, but on foreign soil as well,” the actress said. “I definitely have a newfound respect for these agents, and it’s a privilege to be portraying one on TV.”
another reason FBI The series works because the audience cares about and relates to those characters.
At the end of this season, Jubal will continue to care for his cancer-stricken son as he undergoes radiation treatment while the cyber attack on the children’s hospital takes place closer to home.
The agent also renews a romance with Isobel (Ana de la Garza), a former partner with whom he had an affair years earlier when he was married and an alcoholic.
Sisto said, “Now she is back as the Big Boss of this office and so, we really start a new relationship, which is the first time Jubal has put himself out there.”
The recovering addict’s career distracts him from his complicated personal life in a welcome way.
“The storylines coming out in Office are pretty high stakes,” Sisto said. “He loves his job. He is focused on doing the next right thing in his profession.”
