For the third summer in a row, ABC is airing a high-quality, well-produced, genre-bending reality competition series. Two years ago it experimented with the highly interactive "Big Brother" knock-off called "The Glass House," and followed that with last summer's reality version of a murder mystery dinner theatre, "Whodunnit," which was produced by CSI creator Anthony Zuiker. ABC didn't give either a second chance: the former was officially cancelled and the latter didn't return for a second season. This summer introduced "The Quest," which is the most fully realized hybrid of a scripted series and reality competition yet. It sent contestants into a scripted world populated by actors and governed by an original mythology that tightly integrates reality competitions and eliminations, but also allows contestants to be entirely unscripted and keeps the game pure. The series comes from six world-class producers (Emmy-winning "Amazing Race" producers Elise Doganieri and Bertram Van Munster, »

“[Elijah Mundo] is an expert in battlefield forensics recruited by Special Agent Avery Ryan (series star Patricia Arquette) for his war efforts in Afghanistan. Mundo is a savant when it comes to weaponry, vehicles and bombs,” CBS announced Wednesday, according to Entertainment Weekly. “A self-proclaimed action junkie, Agent Mundo will often put himself at risk to seek permanent justice, while Ryan will level his diehard behavior with her expertise in psychology. Together, they will team up to fight the world’s toughest cyber crimes.”
Per TVLine, Van Der Beek will play the role of FBI Agent Elijah Mundo, a battlefield forensics expert who knows the inside and out of vehicles, weapons and bombs. Mundo is recruited into the FBI's Cyber Crime Division by Special Agent Avery Ryan (Patricia Arquette) and should find use in his skills as the division tracks down the most dangerous cyber criminals.
Van Der Beek was last seen in the CBS series Friends with Better Lives, which was cancelled this past spring. He will forever be most recognizable for his role on The CW series Dawson's Creek and the movie Varsity Blues. The Internet »

MacNicol will play Assistant Director Stavros Sifter, a career FBI insider and supervisor of Special Agent Avery Ryan for the Cyber Crime Division in Washington, D.C. Sifter quickly rose up the ranks and positioned himself in a job where he is the clearing house between FBI Cyber and all other branches of government. He is a shrewd and savvy networker; a charmer with a hint of malice. Drilling down to the core of his “Classified” status, Sifter knows what very few know behind the closed doors of the U.S. Government. The social networks and devices we use on a daily basis are the Government’s way of monitoring its citizens domestically and abroad — therefore, Sifter has the impossible task of controlling the amplification of cyber crime in an era where the collective world communicates electronically. »

The planted CSI spinoff will join offshoot NCIS: New Orleans on the CBS schedule next season. CSI: Cyber was not on the list of four drama pilots picked up to series by CBS earlier today but as we reported, the project was in final negotiations for a pickup, which now has become a reality. I had heard that CBS would likely not launch the NCIS and CSI spinoffs at the same time, with NCIS: New Orleans more likely for fall and CSI: Cyber for midseason. Written-executive produced by the CSI team of Carol Mendelsohn, Anthony Zuiker and Ann Donahue, CSI: Cyber stars Patricia Arquette as Avery Ryan, Special Agent in Charge at the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI in Quantico, Va, who is tasked with solving major crimes that start in the mind, live online, and play out into the real world.

“CSI: Cyber” features Arquette as the head of FBI’s cyber crimes division in Quantico. The episode, which aired April 30, was written by “CSI” creator Anthony Zuiker, Carol Mendelsohn and Ann Donahue, the team that launched the original series in 2000.

All CSI needed in order to get its latest spinoff off the ground (at least in my mind) was a solid leading actress. Enter Patricia Arquette. She’s a treasure for sure and has been showing off her acting chops for a long time, most notably and recently as the star of Medium. Now she’s going to be heading up a new series that will be the new kid on the block of the CSI franchise. What sets this one apart from the series that have come before is the switch away from forensics to cyber crime. Is it going to be a new hit?
Arquette will lead the spinoff in its setting of the FBI’s Cyber Crime Division in Quantico, Va. EW reported she’ll be playing Avery Ryan, the special agent in charge of a team tasked to solve “high octane crimes that start in the mind, »

Zuiker and Ann Donahue, the untitled spinoff (aka CSI Cyber) centers on Avery Ryan (Arquette), Special Agent in Charge at the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI in Quantico, Va, who is tasked with solving high-octane crimes that start in the mind, live online, and play out into the real world.

Patricia Arquette has been tapped to star in the planned spinoff episode of “CSI,” set to air later this spring.
The spinoff will focus on how technology has reached a point where faceless criminals can commit major crimes with the touch of a button. It’s inspired by Mary Aiken’s work as a “cyber psychologist.” Arquette will star as special agent Avery Ryan, who is tasked with solving high octane crimes that start out in the cyber world and play out in real life.
Most recently, Arquette had an arc on this past season of HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” as a love interest for Steve Buscemi’s character. She also had a seven-season run on NBC’s “Medium,” which earned her three Golden Globe nominations, two Emmy noms and one win in 2005.

The role marks Arquette’s return to broadcast TV since she starred in Medium, which ran for six years and racked up 130 episodes across two »

I bet you never thought you’d need another CSI spinoff, am I right? It’s been ten years since CSI: NY became a thing and now that series, along with CSI: Miami, is no longer around. In fact, the original CSI is the only one in the franchise still airing new episodes on CBS. You’d think this would be a sign of the inevitable end of the franchise, but CBS has other plans. It’s pretty clear forensic science is no longer the hot ticket topic it once was and that it’s time for new procedural ideas to come to light, so why would CBS be looking for a new spinoff of CSI?
It actually kind of makes sense. The spinoff, which Deadline reported is being written by CSI creator Anthony E. Zuiker, longtime showrunner Carol Mendelsohn and former CSI: Miami showrunner Ann Donahue, is completely leaving »

CBS has their franchise-making machine working overtime this pilot season. Not only are "NCIS: New Orleans" and "How I Met Your Dad" in the works for fall consideration, but the network is once again turning to "CSI" for a possible spinoff.
The long-running crime procedural, which famously spawned two now-canceled series ("CSI: Miami" and "CSI: NY"), will try once again to birth a new hit with a planted spinoff, set to air as an episode of the drama this spring, THR reports. Departing from the usual focus of criminal forensics, the new series will focus instead on cyber crimes.
Inspired by the work of Irish cyber-psychologist Mary Aiken, the project centers on Avery Ryan, special agent in charge at the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI, who handles major crimes that begin in the mind, live online and work their way into the real world.
