After headlining 'Medium' on CBS until 2011, Patricia Arquette will return to the network as an FBI agent specialising in cyber crime.
The actress is set to play the lead in the upcoming spinoff from the popular TV franchise.
First mentioned last month, the third spin-off on the hit CBS police series has found its leading lady. Former Medium star Patricia Arquette will become the first woman to head up an investigation team in the fictional world of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
The actress will return to TV in the role of Avery Ryan, the agent in charge of an FBI cyber crime investigation division in Quantico, Virginia. On the air since 2000, CSI has already outlived two of its spin-offs, which were set in Miami and New York.
Anthony Zuicker, the creator of the original series, will write for the new spin-off alongside CSI regulars Carol Mendelsohn and Ann Donahue. The new series will be introduced this spring through an episode of the original CSI, which is set in Las Vegas.
The project will give Arquette her first regular TV role since the end of Medium in 2011. The actress recently appeared in episodes of Law & Order: Criminal Intent and in the fourth season of Boardwalk Empire.
CBS has two spin-offs in preparation for the 2014-15 season. In addition to the new CSI, the network is developing an NCIS spin-off set in New Orleans and starring Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap). — AFP Relaxnews
