Based on a true story, Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye follows the adventures of Sue Thomas at the FBI in Washington, D.C. She’s one hard-headed, soft-hearted woman whose talent for reading lips helps crack crimes and bag the bad guys in places listening devices can’t penetrate. With her hearing-ear dog, Levi, Sue’s a glutton for jeopardy – and there’s (almost) nothing she won’t do to bring notorious criminals to justice. This remarkable, edge-of-your-seat drama is an inspiring tribute to the ability of the human spirit to overcome adversity and achieve great things.
Loosely based on the true experiences of the real Sue Thomas, a deaf woman whose ability to read lips landed her a job with an elite surveillance team at the FBI.
The series was once known as Lip Service. The actress who plays Thomas, Deanne Bray, is deaf in real life. Most of the filming for the series took place in Toronto, Ontario.
