Airing on CBS, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders stars Gary Sinise, Alana De La Garza, Daniel Henney, Tyler James Williams, and Annie Funke. Sherry Stringfield, Brittany Uomoleale, Kelly Frye, Ezra Dewey, Declan Whaley, and Matt Cohen recur. The procedural series features the International Division of the FBI which investigates crimes and rescues Americans in peril, abroad. International Response Unit Chief Jack Garrett (Sinise) is a 20-year veteran of the Bureau. His crack team includes multi-lingual cultural anthropologist Clara Seger (De La Garza). There is also military hero and expert profiler Matthew Simmons (Henney). Russ “Monty” Montgomery (Williams), is a gifted tech analyst who additionally works with the families of those in trouble. Finally, there is the funny but fierce medical examiner, Mae Jarvis (Funke). The unit zealously works to bring U.S. residents safely home, by profiling and identifying criminals who are beyond our borders.
