Sue Thomas: F B Eye – pilot episode


“Sue Thomas: F. B. Eye,” is a groundbreaking, original drama, and is inspired by the true story of Sue Thomas, a profoundly deaf girl from the age of 18 months, who is about to start her first real job – which happens to be with the F. B. I. Using her unique lip reading ability, Sue becomes the secret weapon of the bureau’s elite surveillance team, making new friends and acquaintances, while also having to prove herself to the skeptics who think she doesn’t belong there. And then there’s the handsome, All-American FBI agent Jack Hudson providing romantic sparks… All of this as Sue and her “partner in crime” – her hearing dog, Levi – pursue cases ranging from bank robbery to white collar crime to terrorism. Sue and Levi are suddenly “G-men,” caught up in a good deal more action than they ever bargained for. But what they lack in experience, they more than make up for in spirit and enthusiasm.

Dove Review

This is the beginning of a wonderful series. Based on the true story of the real Sue Thomas as she begins her new career in Washington DC with the FBI. It is a fantastic show that will be very inspiring to everyone, especially those who may have challenging physical disabilities. This movie demonstrates that anything they might want to do is possible.

The pilot episode focuses on Sue leaving her parents to be on her own with her dog, Levi. Like any person starting out in a new place to live or work, there are challenges for Sue. Sue and Levi are learning a routine, making new friends and dealing with a change in the career path. But along the way she tells her story of how her life as a deaf person started, how her mother pushed her and her education that got her to this point in her life as a part of the FBI.

This is wholesome, inspiring and fantastic entertainment for the entire family. W are proud to award “Sue Thomas: F. B. Eye” (pilot episode) the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
