The FBI Files
- 8 Seasons
The FBI Files is an American docudrama series focusing on cases the FBI has investigated. When episodes air that were previously released in seasons past, the show usually includes an update about the case. This allows the viewers to get a sense of the here and now impact of the investigation and awareness of any follow up information as well. The show focuses on real FBI cases with interviews and dramatizations. The viewer also learns facts from forensic scientists who play a role in the series. James Kallstrom was the original narrator; himself a former director of the New York's FBI offices. He was also a part of investigating TWA flight 800. Episodes focus on topics such as the murder of two Ivy League professors, to the terror a sniper instills in a small town, to an episode on a bank robber who used the stolen money to help Mexican children living in poverty.
