Computational Complexity and other fun stuff in math and computer science from Lance Fortnow and Bill Gasarch

Coming in January to the American television network CBS, a series
about a FBI agent who recruits his brother, a math genius, to help
solve crimes. I don't hold much hope for realism in Numb3rs
(anyone remember Q.E.D.?) but
any show that shows mathematicians in a good light helps shape public
perception of our field.
I would like
to know the "actual events" that inspired this series.
