Earlier this year, a report from Deadline announced that a spin-off series for the hit police procedural TV drama series "Criminal Minds" is on the works.

Written by parent show executive producer, Erica Messer, the report further revealed that the series would star "CSI: NY" cast member Gary Sinise as its lead.

This week, a report from Enstarz.com cited the official synopsis for the anticipated off-shoot drama which, as indicated, will be released as an episode in "Criminal Minds'" Season 10.

The pilot, as revealed, will be set in an international setting. Aptly named "Beyond Borders," the segment would tackle on the Behavioural Assessment Unit helping the FBI's International Unit on a case in Barbados.

The synopsis reads (via Enstars):
"When a family of four is abducted while on vacation in Barbados, the BAU is called to assist Unit Chief Jack Garrett (Sinise) and his International Unit on their investigation. Garrett and his unit, the FBI's top division for handling cases involving Americans abroad, work jointly with Hotch and his team when they discover that this case matches one the BAU investigated last year in Florida."

Aside from Sinise, "Breaking Bad" alum Anna Gunn and "The Walking Dead" actor Tyler James Williams (who just died on the latest TWD episode "Spend"), are also coming to the show.

Williams will take on the role of a "sweet and incredibly smart" tech savvy analyst who will help the team "fill in the holes" when they fly off searching for a killer.

Little is known about Gunn's character but according to Entertainment Weekly, her name on the show will be Ally Lambert.

"Beyond Borders" will air as a backdoor pilot episode on "Criminal Minds" Season 10 this April 8 on CBS.
