The Mentalist stars Emmy®, Golden Globe and SAG Award nominee Simon Baker as Patrick Jane, an independent consultant with the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI), who has a remarkable track record for using his razor sharp skills of observation to solve serious crimes.
Within the Bureau, Jane is notorious for his blatant lack of protocol and his semi-celebrity past as a psychic medium, whose paranormal abilities he now admits he feigned. No-nonsense CBI senior agent Teresa Lisbon was initially reluctant to accept Jane into her unit; however, though she occasionally reprimands him for his theatrics and lack of boundaries, she acknowledges Jane's usefulness and finds him intriguing. Lisbon's team includes agents Kimball Cho, who serves as the lead interrogator and possesses a finely honed wit; Wayne Rigsby, the team's resident fire and explosives expert; and relative newcomer Grace Van Pelt, the optimist who is often at odds with Jane's more jaded views. Together, the CBI team agrees that Jane is a loose cannon but can't help but admire his charm and knack for clearing cases.
