Special Agent John Olansky is the leader of a maverick squad of FBI agents based in Los Angeles in this weekly series. C-16 is frequently criticized by the Bureau for not going "by the book", but because Olansky's loyal agents almost always get results, the squad is mostly left alone. Written by

C-16: FBI was a great but all too shortlived series about an FBI station in Los Angeles. Great cast, Eric Roberts is really good as the warm boss, the introverted and ambitious Morris Chestnut, Zach Grenier as the older, whizzened FBI man, ladies man D.B. Sweeney all gave great performances and Christine Tucci (Stan's sister) and Angie Harmon are stunningly beautiful. And Leslie Bega... she's enough to make a grown man beg. However, it's the stories that were unpredictable, action packed and still very intelligent. I don't know why it was stopped after only a few (I think twelve) episodes, but it could have gone on much longer. Considering the other stuff that seems to keep going and going (Silk Stalkings, for instance), this series was far superior.
