"Headquartered (and filmed) in Budapest, elite operatives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's International Fly Team travel the world with the mission of tracking and neutralizing threats against American citizens wherever they may be. The Fly Team's Special Agent Scott Forrester (Luke Kleintank), their accomplished and dedicated leader, puts his missions ahead of his personal life and is rarely seen without the team's "secret weapon" - their trusty Schutzhund dog, Tank. Second in command is Special Agent Jamie Kellett (Heida Reed), who's not afraid to tussle - in an alley or courtroom - and whose extensive network of informants is a powerful resource. Special Agent Andre Raines (Carter Redwood) shines in the field and makes good use of his accounting background in tracking criminal enterprises moving money; and the group's newest member, Special Agent Cameron Vo (Vinessa Vidotto), is a competitive West Point grad who excels at interrogation and strategy. A key part of the mix is the unflappable Europol Agent Katrin Jaeger (Christiane Paul), the multilingual liaison between the Fly Team and each host country they inhabit.”
