When law enforcement needs to catch the nation's most dangerous fugitives, they call the ultimate "manhunters," the elite agents of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force. Mandated by U.S. Congress after 9/11, the Task Force is made up of multiple federal, state and local agencies, and has the unique ability to transcend jurisdictions in order to work together, unfettered by local boundaries, towards the common goal of catching the country's most violent fugitives. Manhunters: Fugitive Task Force rides along with the elite agents of the NY/NJ Division, based in the heart of New York City, on hunts for everyone from triple-homicide felons to major international fugitives. Stories in season one include the Marshals on the hunt for an alleged former member of the "Jamaican Shower Posse," a Brooklyn gang renowned for showering their enemies with bullets; a female bank robber who made her hit on Valentine's Day; and an alleged senior member of the infamous Columbian drug cartel, one of the largest and most notorious drug organizations in the world.
