As you may recall, in 2016, Dick Wolf was able to convince the FBI to allow him to embed a TV production team and film crew inside the FBI’s New York office to capture behind-the-scenes real-life action stories of FBI agents and analysts at work. That should mean that CBS writers will have lots of real-life scenarios to use for the TV drama’s storylines and character development. But I wouldn’t have been able to come up with 20 clichés and misconceptions about the FBI in books, TV, and movies (podcast episodes 50 and 100) if there was no chance of an occasional factual digression.
You’ll be able to read my weekly review of FBI CBS blog posts here at Jerri Williams.com. I’ll also link to them on Twitter – @FBITVReview and Facebook – Jerri Williams Author. Once the show premieres, let me know if you have any questions. If I don’t have the answer, I think I might know a few retired agents who will be able to help out.
