About the show
Former psychic Patrick Jane joins a law-enforcement team as they investigate a murder with the hallmarks of a serial killer from his past.
Golden Globe Award nominee Simon Baker (The Guardian, The Devil Wears Prada) stars as Patrick Jane, an independent consultant with the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI), who has a remarkable track record for solving serious crimes by using his razor sharp skills of observation. The Mentalist also stars Robin Tunney (Empire Records, The Craft, Prison Break), Tim Kang (The Forgotten, Two Weeks Notice), Owain Yeoman (Troy, The Nine) and Amanda Righetti (The O.C., Return to House on Haunted Hill).
Within the Bureau, Jane is notorious for his blatant lack of protocol and his semi-celebrity past as a psychic medium, whose paranormal abilities he now admits he feigned. Jane's role in cracking a series of tough high-profile cases is greatly valued by his fellow agents.
However, no-nonsense Senior Agent Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney) openly resists having Jane in her unit and alternates between reluctantly acknowledging Jane's usefulness and blasting him for his theatrics, narcissism and dangerous lack of boundaries. Lisbon's team includes agents Kimball Cho (Tim Kang), Wayne Rigsby (Owain Yeoman) and rookie member Grave van Pelt (Amanda Righetti), who all think Jane's a loose cannon but admire his charm and knack for clearing cases.
