A famous "psychic" outs himself as a fake, and starts working as a consultant for the California Bureau of Investigation so he can find "Red John", the madman who killed his wife and daughter.
The concept for the show (a man who is hyper-observant and fakes being a psychic) is the same as the series Psych (2006), which aired two years earlier.
There's no such thing as psychics.
On occasion, such as the teaser to "Russett Potatoes", California State Police officers can be seen working. The California State Police were dissolved in 1995, those that remained became a part of the California Highway patrol.
