‘CSI’ Planted Spinoff About Cyber Crime Gets CBS Pilot Order

deadline.com

Inspired by the work of Irish CyberPsychologist Mary Aiken, the proposed CSI spinoff centers on Avery Ryan, Special Agent in Charge at the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI in Quantico, VA, who is tasked to solve major crimes that start in the mind, live on-line, and play out into the real world. Zuiker, Mendelsohn and Donahue are executive producing with Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonatan Littman. Aiken will serve as a producer. Given the new setting for the latest CSI spinoff, it is unclear if it would keep the CSI moniker or switch to a new one the way CBS did with NCIS, which was spun off from military drama JAG.
After Hostages and Intelligence bombed it looks like CBS is playing it safe with CSI and NCIS spin offs ordered to pilot. It wouldn't be surprising if both wound up on the 2014 Fall schedule.

Re: ‘CSI’ Planted Spinoff About Cyber Crime Gets CBS Pilot Order

I'm not sure how a cyber crimes show will work. Less potential for cool visual effects and action scenes. They'd have to find some kind of way to make hacking more dramatic than somebody fake-typing really fast while stuff appears on screen. Plus more of the online topics have politically sensitive issues. Nobody's going to disagree with you that rape and murder are bad but anything involving the topics of intellectual property rights.

I don't think Hostages failed because it was serial. More because the premise was very obviously very thin from the get go.

But yeah, name-recognized crime procedurals tend to be the best way to get free ratings. Unless you depart too far from the premise, like with Law & Order Trial By Jury. I suspect the cyber crime show will be like that.

That's probably why they most likely not going to call it CSI: Something.

Well they can just use this site for their special effects.

During sweeps, they can work together using a single mouse.

Prepare for intelligence-insulting stereotypes of hackers, gamers and computer nerds.

It won't make it. Remember Numb3rs? Audiences don't appreciate being scienced and mathed.

Reminds me of an interview with the House, M.D. cast. Robert Sean Leonard (the guy who plays Wilson) somehow brought up that he got the script for a pilot of a crime show where his character was supposed to solve crimes with the help of math, and then went on to say how stupid he thought it was.


*edit* HA, I found it.

Err, Numb3rs ran for six seasons and 118 episodes. How could that possibly qualify as not "making it"?

Wonder if this show will resemble "Intelligence".

If Intelligence is canceled, they could even hire Marg Helgenberger for this CSI spinoff.

Re: ‘CSI’ Planted Spinoff About Cyber Crime Gets CBS Pilot Order

I wouldn't call Numb3rs a show that 'Scienced and mathed' you. It's a show that gave you a brief gist of science and math in a digestible format to drive the drama of a crime show. Numb3rs is to math as CSI is to forensic science.
