> Description 
The Inside is a 2005 television series on the FOX Network. It stars Peter Coyote, Rachel Nichols, Jay Harrington, Adam Baldwin, Katie Finneran, and Nelsan Ellis.


The show features Nichols as rookie FBI Agent Rebecca Locke, who joins the Bureau's Los Angeles Violent Crimes Unit (VCU). While she proves to be a brilliant investigator, she has a secret that only she, and mysterious VCU director Virgil "Web" Webster (Coyote), know: as a 10-year-old girl, Rebecca was kidnapped from her home and held captive for 18 months (a la Elizabeth Smart). Astonishingly enough, no one found and rescued her; she escaped the trauma by freeing herself. Webster manipulates Rebecca's experience on each case, using the insight she gained through it to establish the mindset of the victim -- and the criminal.

Another sidebar to the plot is the moral struggle between Webster, who seems willing to use Rebecca's gift to catch the "unsub" at all costs, and Rebecca's partner Paul Ryan (Harrington), who views himself as the voice of conscience in the battle for Rebecca's soul. Additionally, Web's past is very much unknown; viewers are left wondering exactly how much he has in common with the perpitrators he pursues.

The show is the brainchild of Tim Minear, of Angel and Firefly fame. While FOX had already developed an earlier version of the show (a distaff 21 Jump Street imitator), Minear re-tooled it, with Nichols as the only holdover. Just seven episodes into its 13-episode first season, FOX cancelled The Inside, making it the third series (along with Firefly and Wonderfalls) of Minear's to be aborted by the network. Minear plans on releasing all 13 episodes of the original run, plus the Jump Street pilot, plus another pilot which was shot without Minear's supervision and was panned by FOX execs, on a DVD in late 2005. Talk has emerged that the DVD would also include Inside co-creator Howard Gordon's short-lived 1999 series Strange World to make a 26-episode set, but no plans have been confirmed.
