JAVICIA LESLIE

"We were beyond thrilled to have the beautiful Javicia Leslie join our glamorous CBS Upfront photo booth (May 2018), captured by talented celebrity photographer David Needleman. Exciting to know that just a few years later the talented actress would be starring as The CW's new Batwoman. Bravo Javicia! We love you and can't wait to see what's in store next!" — Alice Ross, Deputy Photo Editor

Batwoman airs Sundays at 8/7c on The CW. Stream next day free only on The CW.

ZEEKO ZAKI

"When FBI star Zeeko Zaki said yes to participating on a photo shoot with Watch, we ventured to a rugged landscape and one of my favorited spots in NYC: The Brooklyn Shipyard. In this place of broken concrete and distressed steel, Zaki stood as a relaxed, magnificent symbol of poise and order, always full of spirit and joy in a chaotic environment. With Dario Calmese as the photographer and Michael Nash styling, this team had a vision of brilliance, which was matched by the actor." — Ed Mann, Creative Director

FBI airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on CBS and streams on CBS All Access

NORAH O'DONNELL

"January 20, 2021 was a historic day in America, and it seemed fitting to feature Norah O'Donnell of CBS Evening News for a "Photo of the Day" post. Photographer Sami Drasin beautifully captured the broadcast journalist at our nation's capital for the November-December 2019 issue of Watch. Known for her intellectual rigor and inquisitiveness, this photo artfully conveys Norah O'Donnell's drive, professionalism, and poise under pressure." — Mona Buehler, Director, Digital and Lifestyle Editorial

CBS Evening News airs Weeknights on CBS and streams on CBS All Access and cbsnews.com.

SAMI GAYLE

"This was our first shoot with photographer Adrienne Raquel. I had been stalking her on Instagram after reading a Refinery29 article on her and her work. We had a shoot coming up with Sami Gayle of Blue Bloods, and I just had to get Adrienne! I wanted to see something new and fresh, something through her eyes. After a few phone calls and discussions about the concept (shooting in Coney Island and our own Sasha Charnin Morrison styling the starlet), she was sold! Adrienne nailed it, and brought even more spunk into the shots with her insanely creative color and post production work that she does all on her own." — Christopher Ross, Director of Photography

Blue Bloods airs Fridays at 10/9c on CBS and streams on CBS All Access.
