CBS is trying once again to spin off a series from its highly successful show “Criminal Minds.”
The spinoff, which will launch as a planted episode of “Criminal Minds” later this season, will focus on an elite FBI team of profilers who work abroad. Showrunner Erica Messer will write and exec produce the episode. Casting is now in progress.
This isn’t the first time a spinoff has been attempted for the ABC Studios drama. “Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior” debuted in February 2011 but lasted only 13 episodes.
