A new CBS drama series from Dick Wolf will reunite Wolf with former “Law & Order” actor Jeremy Sisto. Deadline reports that Sisto will star opposite Zeeko Zaki in “F.B.I.,” which has a 13-episode order at the Tiffany Network.
The series, a co-production of Universal Television and CBS TV Studios, is based in the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
“Sisto will play FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge,” Deadline reports. “He is in the sweet spot of his FBI career: experienced enough to honcho a sophisticated response, energetic enough to keep his team motivated. His ability to relate and engage easily to subordinates and superiors makes him ‘good glue’ and sets him up as the nerve center of the office. Everybody thinks they know the ‘real’ man, but as open as he is, if you look closely, he takes in much more than he puts out.”
