FBI: MOST WANTED David Hudgins

“Black Mirror” – When two Vermont teens are kidnapped on their way home from a basketball game, the team is led to a wayward pastor and his brother. Also, Remy attends a hearing for his brother’s murderer, on the CBS Original series FBI: MOST WANTED, Tuesday, Feb. 14 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.

FBI: MOST WANTED’s big fourth season concluded with a major milestone off-screen: the show received two Emmy nominations. (For Outstanding Stunt Performance and Outstanding Stunt Coordination For A Drama Series, Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie; the awards will be handed out at a TBD date in 2024.)

Naturally, when asked about his favorite season 4 moments, FBI: MOST WANTED showrunner David Hudgins first points to that accomplishment. “We had a stunt coordinator this year, Declan [Mulvey], who got nominated for an Emmy,” he says in the video below. “It was really fun last season to write towards the action and the stunt sequences, because I knew they could pull them off…I mean, we literally had boats, we had explosions. So the action part of that was something [where] we really flexed that muscle.”

Looking back at the stories the show told, Hudgins cited “Black Mirror”—where Remy (Dylan McDermott) has to face the man he thinks killed his brother and has to balance an undercover case—as one of his favorites of the year.

“I thought [McDermott] was so good in that episode, and I thought the bad guys were so good in that episode,” he says. “So that was a highlight for me. The [FBI franchise] crossover was fantastic, too. But the crossover for me means tons of work…I do think we pulled off a good one. So it was a great season and everybody’s raring to go, anxious to get back.”

As of now, when FBI: MOST WANTED returns for its fifth season is very much up in the air. The WGA has been on strike since early May (and SAG-AFTRA joined them in mid-July), as the studios have yet to meaningfully engage with the writers and actors about a new contract.

“I’m here for basically the younger writers—the people down below,” Hudgins shared during the Wolf Entertainment-themed reunion picket. “Because we got to give them the chance to make a living…it’s not fair. And I think about what they’re dealing with now versus what I was dealing with back then. And something needs to change. And I think now is the time…we’ve got all these people out here, and nobody has relented.”
