Numb3rs (Pronounced Numbers, stylized NUMB3RS) is an American crime drama television seriesthat ran on CBS from January 23, 2005 to March 12, 2010. The series was created by Nicolas Falacciand Cheryl Heuton, and follows FBI special agent Don Eppes (Rob Morrow) and his mathematical genius brother Charlie Eppes (David Krumholtz) who helps Don solve crimes for the FBI. BrothersRidley and Tony Scott produced Numb3rs; its production companies are the Scott brothers’ Scott Free Productions, CBS Television Studios (originally Paramount Television, and later CBS Paramount Television).
The show focuses equally on the relationships among Don Eppes, his brother Charlie Eppes, and their father, Alan Eppes (Judd Hirsch), and on the brothers’ efforts to fight crime, normally in Los Angeles. A typical episode begins with a crime, which is subsequently investigated by a team of FBI agents led by Don and mathematically modeled by Charlie, with the help of Larry Fleinhardt (Peter MacNicol) and Amita Ramanujan (Navi Rawat). The insights provided by Charlie’s mathematics were always in some way crucial to solving the crime.
The series was the most popular show airing on Friday evenings throughout its first four seasons. In May 2010, CBS announced that Numb3rs had been cancelled after six seasons.
