The spin-off drama will revolve around a new group of profilers, all of whom are introduced on an episode of the original show this spring, just as CBS did with NCIS/NCIS: Los Angeles.

This team will be led by a character named Cooper (Whitaker), who works outside the FBI bureaucracy.

Garrett will portray his Gina, a recent FBI recruit who is loyal to Cooper. The actress has guest-starred on shows such as Entourage and House.
