The Handler (2003 - 2004)




Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Series Info

Gritty but brief drama about an FBI agent in L.A. who trains colleagues for undercover assignments.


Critics Consensus: What it lacks in originality, The Handler makes up for with an effortlessly cool performance from Joe Pantoliano and a healthy dose of street tough thrills.

2003, CBS, 16 episodes
