Wanted is an American primetime police drama television series broadcast on the TNT network which was aired from July 31 to December 26, 2005. The series was created by Louis St. Clair and Jorge Zamacona, and executive produced by Aaron Spelling, E. Duke Vincent and Jorge Zamacona.


The show follows an elite taskforce, with members pulled from the different branches of law enforcement (DEA, United States Marshals, LAPD, ATF, FBI) as they track down Los Angeles's 100 most wanted fugitives and struggle to balance their work and personal lives.

Members of the task force include Conrad Rose (Gary Cole), the Team Leader from L.A. Metro SWAT who is considered the moral center of the unit; Jimmy McGloin (Ryan Hurst), an ATF agent and a bona fide card-carrying conservative; Carla Merced (Rashida Jones), a former Naval Intelligence officer and expert hostage negotiator; Tommy Rodriquez (Benjamín Benítez), an FBI agent not above using his good looks and charm to stop any criminal; Rodney Gronbeck (Josey Scott), an LAPD officer and a tech genius; Joe Vacco (Brendan Kelly), a DEA agent who is currently living at the team's warehouse headquarters after having getting kicked out of his own place; and Eddie Drake (Lee Tergesen), an eight-year veteran of the U.S. Marshals Service and graduate of the L.A. Metro Police Academy. As the team tracks down criminals, often using unconventional (and legally questionable) methods, they discover there is a fine line between justice and the law.

The series was canceled after the first season, at the end of a cliffhanger dealing with whether the group would be prosecuted for overstepping their bounds.[1]
