“NCIS: Hawai’i,” executive produced by Matt Bosack, Jan Nash and Christopher Silber for CBS Studios, centers on the first female special agent in charge of NCIS Pearl Harbor, who has thrived and risen through the ranks by equal parts confidence and strategy in a system that consistently attempts to push her back. Together with her team of specialists, they investigate high-stakes crimes and mysteries on the sun-drenched island paradise. “FBI: International,” executive produced by Emmy Award-winner Dick Wolf, Derek Haas, Matt Olmstead, Michael Katleman, Arthur Forney and Peter Jankowski, takes the third iteration of the “FBI” franchise overseas. Elite operatives of the FBI’s International Fly Team travel the world from their Budapest headquarters with the mission of tracking and neutralizing threats against American citizens. The series is produced by Wolf Entertainment and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with CBS Studios.
