Spinning off from Dick Wolf’s hugely popular parent series, ‘FBI: Most Wanted‘ is a high-stakes drama that focuses on the Fugitive Task Force, which relentlessly tracks and captures the notorious criminals on the Bureau’s Most Wanted list. Seasoned agent Jess LaCroix oversees the highly skilled team that functions as a mobile undercover unit that is always out in the field, pursuing those who are most desperate to elude justice.
Julian McMahon (‘Runaways’, ‘Nip/Tuck’) leads the cast as Jess LaCroix, FBI Supervisory Special Agent, an “agent’s agent” at the top of his game. He oversees the team from the FBI’s Most Wanted Unit, which is assigned the most extreme and egregious cases. The aforementioned team includes Roxy Sternberg (‘Absentia’, ‘Mars’) as FBI Special Agent and Second-in-Command Sheryll Barnes, Kellan Lutz (‘The Comeback’, ‘The Twilight Saga’) as FBI Special Agent Kenny Crosby, Keisha Castle-Hughes (‘Game of Thrones’) as FBI Analyst Hana Gibson, and Nathaniel Arcand (‘Heartland’, ‘Black Summer’) as FBI Special Agent Clinton Skye.

Winner: Grey’s Anatomy – Sky Witness (ABC)
After 17 Seasons, ABC’s monolithic medical drama ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ is still going strong, and solidified its place in US television history as the longest-running primetime medical drama ever.
‘Grey’s Anatomy’ is a high-intensity medical drama which follows Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and the team of doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial who are faced with life-or-death decisions on a daily basis. They seek comfort from one another, and, at times, more than just friendship. Together they discover that neither medicine nor relationships can be defined in black and white.
The 17th Season, which began airing in November in the USA, has not shied away from current global events, setting the opening episode one month into the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s all-hands-on-deck as Meredith, Bailey and the rest of the Grey Sloan doctors find themselves on the frontlines of a new era. Meanwhile, an unintentionally started fire has first responders from Station 19 bringing patients into the hospital for treatment.
‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ airs on Sky Witness in the UK, with Season 17 set to premiere at some point in 2021.
