> Description 
The F.B.I. was a television series broadcast on ABC that ran from 1965 to 1974.

Produced by Quinn Martin and based in part on concepts from the 1959 Warner Bros. theatrical film The FBI Story, the series was an authentic telling of or fictionalized accounts of actual FBI cases, with fictitious main characters carrying the stories. Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. played agent Louis Erskine, while Philip Abbott played Arthur Ward, assistant director to FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover (Hoover himself was never seen in the series).

Some episodes ended with a "most wanted" segment hosted by Zimbalist, noting the FBI's most wanted criminals of the day.

The series was a co-production of Quinn Martin Productions and Warner Bros. Television (WB held the television and theatrical rights to any project based on the FBI).

Mark Felt, then an assistant director at the FBI and later to become famous as the "Deep Throat" source in the Watergate scandal, is reported to have served as an unpaid technical adviser to the series, occasionally going onto the set with Zimbalist.
