Gary Sinise will be back fighting crimes again on TV. The Emmy-winning actor who starred on ?CSI: NY? is set to headline a new ?Criminal Minds? spin-off being developed by CBS.

Sinise will play Jack Garrett, the leader of a division of the FBI?s Analysis Unit. Garrett is described as a 20-year veteran of the Bureau, who is currently in charge of the FBI?s top team for handling cases involving Americans abroad.

The proposed spin-off will air as a planted episode in the mothership series. Filming will begin in mid-February. ?Criminal Minds? showrunner Erica Messer will pen the script and executive produce the pilot along with Mark Gordon and Nick Pepper.

Since ?CSI: NY? ended its nine-season run in 2013, Oscar-nominated actor Sinise has dedicated his time focusing on his humanitarian work via the Gary Sinise Foundation.

?Criminal Minds? is currently one of the most-watched shows on CBS. The police procedural drama has spawned a spin-off, ?Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior?, which aired in 2011, but it was canceled after only 13 episodes due to low ratings.
