Executive producer Dick Wolf has yet another upcoming TV series, but this one isn’t set in Chicago, won’t air on NBC, and isn’t a scripted procedural drama. The Inside the FBI: New York TV show is a docu-series premiering on USA Network, Thursday, April 27, 2017 at 10:00pm ET/PT. Watch a preview, below.
USA Network says: “‘Inside the FBI: New York‘ – In conjunction with the FBI, this unscripted series centers round the FBI New York Field office. Each episode will follow a division within the New York office from Counter Terrorism, Gang Units, Cyber Crimes and Human Trafficking.” Marc Levin, Tom Thayer, and Mark Benjamin also executive produce.
Here’s more from Deadline:
Wolf executive produces Inside the FBI: NY, which comes from Emmy-winning filmmaker Marc Levin. It takes an unprecedented look at the Bureau’s New York field office. “The threat’s always evolving, so we always have to be evolving,” one agent says. “At any moment, without warning, anybody is a potential threat.” Says another: “While we do care about what’s going on overseas, New York is home, and this is where I’m worried about. Any time something happens here, I take it personal.”
The FBI has been under a microscope in recent months, with Director James Comey’s decision on Hillary Clinton’s email scandal late in the election cycle and especially this week’s hearing before the House Intelligence Committee. On Monday, Comey confirmed that the Bureau is investigating Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia and also said the FBI has “no information” to support Trump’s charge that President Obama wiretapped him.
Said Wolf, the man behind NBC’s Law & Order and Chicago franchises, ”Marc and his team were embedded with the FBI’s flagship New York office for over a year, and his extraordinary access has resulted in a never-before-seen look at the lives and work of the FBI agents who keep Americans safe.”
