The new series will focus on cyber crimes.
CBS is giving another CSI spinoff a whirl.
The network is working on another iteration of the CSI franchise – which has already included CSI: Miami and CSI: NY – in the form of a cyber crime spinoff planted within show drama.
The spinoff will explore a world where technology has amplified human behaviour to the point where faceless criminals are committing crimes at global proportions with a touch of a button. Avery Ryan, special agent in charge at the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI in Quantico, Virginia, is tasked to solve high octane crimes that start in the mind, live online, and play out into the real world.
CSI creator Anthony E. Zuiker is writing and executive producing, along with CSI writers/producers Carol Mendelsohn and Ann Donahue. CSI executive producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman are also on board to executive produce the spinoff.
Mary Aiken, whose work as a cyber psychologist inspired the spinoff, is on board as a producer.
The spinoff hails from CBS Television Studios in association with Bruckheimer Television. — Reuters
