The world of crime procedurals on TV has always been interesting to watch, as shown by the success of shows like Law & Order and NCIS. These shows, often based on a “case of the week” format, have kept people amused and helped them feel close to the detective teams they watch. With so many crime stories already out there, it’s hard for a new show to come up with a new angle that draws people in. This will happen once you watch “Found,” a crime drama written by Nkechi Okoro Carroll that promises to be exciting.

Found Cast & Characters Explained:

Shanola Hampton as Gabi Mosely
