Formerly employed by the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Jane spent two years off the grid after tracking down and killing Red John, the serial killer who murdered Jane's wife and daughter. Jane later cut a deal with the FBI to work for them, convincing former CBI Agent Teresa Lisbon (Tunney) to join him. They are supervised by the no-nonsense Agent Dennis Abbott (Dunbar), and work alongside former CBI agent Kimball Cho (Kang), FBI analyst Jason Wylie (Adler) and young, ambitious Agent Michelle Vega (Loren). Now that Lisbon and Jane have confessed their love for one another, they must find a way to be partners in both their professional and personal lives.
Created by Bruno Heller (Gotham, Rome) and executive produced by Heller, Chris Long (Weeds, Monk, Criminal Minds) and Tom Szentgyorgyi (Lie to Me, NYPD Blue), the series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and distributed internationally by Warner Bros. International Television.
