Inspired by actual events, NUMB3RS depicts how the confluence of police work and mathematics provides unexpected revelations and answers to the most perplexing crimnial questions.

Portions of the series have been filmed on the Caltech campus.
NUMB3RS premieres on Sunday, January 23rd at 10:00 p.m., immediately following the AFC Championship Game, and will air in its regular slot beginning Friday, January 28th at 10:00 p.m.
