INSIDE THE FBI: NEW YORK (2017)
INSIDE THE FBI: NEW YORK is a gripping new series that pulls back the curtain on the Bureau’s flagship office to meet the men and women whose mission is to keep Americans safe. Filmed for over a year with unprecedented access to the largest field office in the country, INSIDE THE FBI: NEW YORK tells the untold stories of these unsung heroes dedicated to fighting terrorists, gangsters, bank robbers, cyber criminals and sexual deviants.
INSIDE THE FBI: NEW YORK takes viewers to a secret command center where special agents and analysts manage in real time a national security threat during the Thanksgiving Day Parade. In a vanguard pilot program, young FBI agents use the help of a cooperating ex-ISIS member and stage an intervention with a teenage ISIS sympathizer before it is too late. In a pre-dawn raid in a Harlem housing project, the SWAT team takes down two rival drug gangs battling over turf. Haunted by images posted online by pedophiles, an agent goes undercover to bust a man suspected of paying for sex with children. In Uganda, an FBI agent and a NYPD detective work with an Al-Shabab terrorist turned cooperating witness in the trial of 13 suspects accused of suicide bombings that killed 76 people watching the 2010 World Cup. In his first extended television interview, legendary FBI agent Frank Pellegrino recounts how he tracked the true mastermind of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, around the globe for over a decade until he was face to face with him in an interrogation room in Guantanamo Bay. Veteran agents detail the bitter feud between the FBI and the CIA in the ongoing debate over how to best interrogate terror suspects: the FBI’s traditional approach of showing empathy and developing a rapport versus the CIA’s “enhanced interrogation" program that used brutal tactics like waterboarding.
