CBS Eyes ‘FBI’ Spin-Off

Proposed Drama is Called 'FBI: Most Wanted'

Dick Wolf procedural drama “FBI,” which is a firm go for season two, will feature a backdoor pilot for a potential spin-off series. “FBI: Most Wanted,” which is centered around the division of the FBI tasked with  tracking and capturing the notorious criminals on the FBI’s Most Wanted list, will be featured in an episode later this season.

Wolf and frequent collaborator Rene Balcer (who is a consulting producer on “FBI”) will pen the script and executive produce alongside Peter Jankowski — who serves as president and CEO of Wolf Films — and Arthur W. Forney. Fred Berner  (“FBI,” “Chicago PD”) will direct the episode.

Dick Wolf, of course, is no stranger to spawning spinoffs based on the successful track record for the “Law & Order” and “Chicago”-set franchises.
