“The Mentalist” Will Air Two Back-to-Back Original Episodes
“The Mentalist” stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominee Simon Baker as Patrick Jane, a consultant with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) who has a remarkable track record for solving serious crimes by using his razor-sharp skills of observation earning a reputation for unusual methods and disregard for protocol -- not to mention his former career as a "psychic." 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 to join him. They are supervised by the no-nonsense Agent Dennis Abbott, and work alongside former CBI agent Kimball Cho, FBI analyst Jason Wylie and young, ambitious Agent Michelle Vega. Lisbon and Jane had confessed their love for one another, and have needed to find a way to be partners in both their professional and personal lives.
