Napoleon - The Beginning of the End

On 26 June, 1813, two powerful men gathered in Dresden to discuss the future of war and peace in Europe.

TX Time: 19h00
Genre: Police Procedural, Drama


From Dick Wolf and the team behind the Law & Order franchise, FBI is a drama about the inner workings of the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

This elite unit brings to bear all their talents, intellect and technical expertise on major cases in order to keep New York and the country safe.

Born into a multigenerational law enforcement family, Special Agent Maggie Bell commits deeply to the people she works with as well as those she protects.

Her partner is Special Agent Omar Adom "OA" Zidan, a West Point graduate via Bushwick who spent two years undercover for the DEA before being cherry-picked by the FBI.

Overseeing them is Special Agent in Charge Isobel Castille, who operates under intense pressure and has undeniable command authority.

The team also includes Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jubal Valentine, the nerve centre of the office whose ability to easily relate to and engage with both superiors and subordinates makes him a master motivator.

The smart and outspoken Special Agent Tiffany Wallace, who spent six years with the NYPD, is partner to Special Agent Stuart Scola, an Ivy League-educated Wall Streeter-turned-FBI agent.

These first-class agents tenaciously investigate cases of tremendous magnitude, including terrorism, organised crime and counterintelligence.

In the Season 6 premiere, "All the Rage": When a bus explosion kills several innocent people, the team jumps into action to take down the responsible terrorist organisation.

Meanwhile, Scola tries to balance fatherhood with the job.

FBI: International 3

From Dick Wolf and the team behind FBI and the Law & Order brand, FBI: International is the third iteration of the FBI brand that follows the elite operatives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's International Fly Team.

Headquartered in Budapest, they travel the world with the mission of tracking and neutralizing threats against American citizens wherever they may be, putting their lives on the line to protect the US and its people.

The Fly Team's Special Agent Scott Forrester, their accomplished and dedicated leader, puts his missions ahead of his personal life.

Second in command is Special Agent Jamie Kellett, a heroic and fearless investigator – and her extensive network of informants is a powerful resource.

Special Agent Andre Raines shines in the field and makes good use of his accounting background in tracking criminal enterprises' moving money.

Special Agent Cameron Vo, a competitive West Point grad, excels at interrogation and strategy, and Megan "Smitty" Garretson, a streetwise Europol agent with an extensive undercover background, uses her expertise to liaise with each host country they inhabit.

Newly embedded with the Fly Team is Special Agent Amanda Tate, a confident and tech savvy intel analyst, who stays quick on her feet and remains calm in the midst of chaos.

Always at the scene where American interests are at risk, FBI: International is a globe-trotting depiction of law enforcement overseas.

In the Season 3 premiere, "June": The Fly Team, with the help of their new intel analyst, Special Agent Amanda Tate (new series regular Christina Wolfe), works to clean up the pieces left behind after a massive explosion rocks headquarters and their key suspect slips away.

The team's charming but formidable leader is Supervisory Special Agent Remy Scott, who started his career in the New York FBI field office before rising through the ranks of the Bureau in Philadelphia and Las Vegas.

The team includes Special Agent Sheryll Barnes, a former NYPD detective and forensics expert who is raising two young children with her wife.

There's also Special Agent Hana Gibson, a gifted millennial computer whiz with a sharp wit and mad hacking skills.

Special Agent Ray Cannon is a former New Orleans cop-turned-junior detective and worked Violent Crimes in Albany after following in his retired FBI agent father's footsteps.

The newest member of the Fugitive Task Force is well-seasoned Special Agent Nina Chase who, most recently, worked assorted cases with the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Originally from the Houston field office where she specialised in undercover work, Nina is a standout agent who is skilled with cars and has a penchant for driving fast.

Always in the field and always on the run, FBI: Most Wanted is a weekly adrenaline shot about the thrill of the chase.

In the Season 5 premiere, "Above & Beyond": When a mysterious deal goes south, leaving behind multiple bodies, the Fugitive Task Force heads to Virginia to put the pieces together with the help of a familiar face and new addition to the team, Special Agent Nina Chase (new series regular Shantel VanSanten).
