FBI: INTERNATIONAL is the third iteration of the successful FBI brand that follows the elite operatives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s International Fly Team. Headquartered in Budapest, they travel the world with the mission of tracking and neutralizing threats against American citizens wherever they may be, putting their lives on the line to protect the U.S. and its people. The Fly Team’s Special Agent Scott Forrester, their accomplished and dedicated leader, puts his missions ahead of his personal life and is rarely seen without the team’s “secret weapon” – their trusty Schutzhund dog, Tank. Second in command is Special Agent Jamie Kellett, not afraid to tussle – in an alley or courtroom – and her extensive network of informants is a powerful resource. Special Agent Andre Raines shines in the field and makes good use of his accounting background in tracking criminal enterprises’ moving money; and the group’s newest member is Special Agent Cameron Vo, a competitive West Point grad who excels at interrogation and strategy. A key part of the mix is the unflappable Europol Agent Katrin Jaeger, a multilinguistic liaison between the FBI Fly Team and each host country they inhabit. Always at the scene where American interests are at risk, FBI: INTERNATIONAL is a globe-trotting depiction of law enforcement overseas. –cbs.com
What differs ”FBI: International” compared to the majority of other police procedurals, is that Fly Team operatives aren’t allowed to carry guns. This is a show focusing on intelligence, problem solving, troubleshooting, and hand-to-hand combat to protect the United States from international threats. Perhaps the lack of high-intensity gun action is also why there’s been no official release of preview stills of the show. Considering Dick Wolf shows are known for their gun violence, it’ll be interesting to see how fans of his previous work respond to a new style of crime-stopping.–slashfilm.com
