Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders is an American police procedural series created by Erica Messer as the second spin-off from Criminal Minds (the first being Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior), about the specialised International Division of the FBI tasked with solving crimes and coming to the rescue of Americans who find themselves in danger while abroad.
Heading the department is Unit Chief Jack Garrett (Gary Sinise), a seasoned 20-year veteran of the Bureau.
The team he trusts with his life includes Clara Seger, a smart, well-traveled and multi-lingual cultural anthropologist; and Matthew Simmons (Daniel Henney), a former military hero with split-second profiling skills he honed on the battlefield.
There's also Russ "Monty" Montgomery (Tyler James Williams), the unit's compassionate, brilliant tech analyst who additionally liaises stateside with the families of those in trouble while his group is far from home; and Mae Jarvis, the team's fearless and fun medical examiner.
These exceptional agents are dedicated to safely returning U.S. residents home by profiling and identifying criminals who are beyond American borders.
The pilot was a planted spin-off of an episode of Criminal Minds. Mark Gordon, Erica Messer and Nick Pepper are executive producers for ABC Studios in association with CBS Television Studios and The Mark Gordon Company.
