Anna Gunn will be starring in a new show opposite Gary Sinise.

Most know Anna Gunn as Walter White's wife, Skyler, on Breaking Bad.

Anna Gunn will be taking on a Criminal Minds spinoff.

The actress, who will play Ally Lambert, will have the privilege of working with Gary Sinise as an international law expert and linguist who works for the FBI.

Anna Gunn also joins Tyler James Williams of The Walking Dead fame.

Anna Gunn's character works for a special division of the FBI, called the BAU team, that helps Americans who find themselves in trouble while abroad.

Gary Sinise will play team leader Jack Garrett, who is a 20-year veteran of the bureau.

Those three are sure to make an amazing show!

The pilot will actually be shot as an episode of Criminal Minds that will air later this season as a planted spinoff.

Anna Gunn recently starred with David Tennant in Gracepoint, which is Fox’s adaptation of the British series Broadchurch. She has also guest starred on The Mindy Project.

The person with enough guts to bring together Anna Gunn, Gary Sinise, and Tyler James Williams all in one show, is Criminal Minds showrunner Erica Messer. She is writing the script and executive-producing with Mark Gordon and Nick Pepper.

The show is still in the development stages right now, but will be produced by ABC Studios, CBS Television Studios and The Mark Gordon Company.

Anna Gunn was amazing in Breaking Bad. Add to that Gary Sinise and Tyler James Williams, and this new Criminal Minds spinoff can't miss!
