About “The Mentalist”
“The Mentalist” stars Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominee Simon Baker as Patrick Jane, an independent consultant with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) who has a remarkable track record for solving serious crimes by using his razor-sharp skills of observation. Formerly employed by the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Jane spent his time there solving cases while tracking the serial killer known as Red John, who murdered Jane’s wife and daughter.

His last act at CBI was to finally find Red John and kill him. After spending two years off the grid, Jane cut a deal with the FBI to work for them, bringing with him former CBI Senior Agent Teresa Lisbon, the only person who seems to be able to keep Jane’s theatrics and lack of boundaries under control. Jane and Lisbon work with their former fellow CBI agent Kimball Cho, and FBI Agent Kim Fischer, and are supervised by the no-nonsense Agent Dennis Abbott. The rest of the former CBI team, Wayne Rigsby and Grace Van Pelt, have started their own security firm, but keep in touch with their former colleagues.
