‘CSI: Cyber – The Complete Season One’ Review

Stars: Patricia Arquette, James Van Der Beek, Shad Moss, Charley Koontz, Hayley Kiyoko | Created by Ann Donahue, Carol Mendelsohn, Anthony E. Zuiker

When a new CSI show is premiered it has a hard task to live up to the shows that have run before them. This was one problem with CSI: Cyber.

We last saw Avery Ryan (Patricia Arquette) in CSI: Las Vegas when she appeared as the “Cyber” expert, helping on a case. Now in her own environment she has her own team of hackers, as well as former marine Elijah Mundo (James Van Der Beek) fighting against the rising world of cyber-crime. Using Patricia Arquette as the lead character was a good move, and the character of Avery Ryan is interesting. Her history of being a psychologist who had her records hacked leading to her patients becoming vulnerable to this attacker makes for a deep and interesting character.

‘CSI’ Creator Anthony Zuiker to Write ‘Soul Train’ Musical for Broadway

‘CSI’ Creator Anthony Zuiker to Write ‘Soul Train’ Musical for Broadway
The brewing Broadway musical version of “Soul Train” has found its conductor, and it’s Anthony Zuiker, the creator of the “CSI” franchise.

TV procedural maven Zuiker, who wrote the two-hour series finale that wrapped up the 15-year run of the original “CSI” on Sunday, may not seem an obvious match for the “Soul Train” property. But Zuiker wears his love for soul music on his sleeve, and earlier this year demonstrated his enthusiasm in a closed industry presentation in New York, where he energetically pitched his take on the musical in a black velour track suit and gold high-tops.

“My parents would play soul music all night long,” Zuiker, who was raised in Las Vegas, said in a recent interview. “In the showroom at the Riviera Hotel where my mother worked, they had Bill Withers, the 5th Dimension. I grew up listening to this music.”

Top 5 TV: The Return of 'Empire'

Top 5 TV: The Return of 'Empire'
The big topic of conversation among TV fanatics this past week? The overall lousiness of the network's new fall shows. After a summer filled with UnREAL, Mr. Robot, Show Me a Hero, and The Carmichael Show — not to mention the soon-departing Fear the Walking Dead, which aired its best episode yet — it was damned dispiriting to have to slog through the likes of Life in Pieces, Blindspot, and Rosewood. Where's the panache? Where are the series with something to say?

Yes, ABC's The Muppets and Fox's Scream Queens had memorable debuts,

‘CSI’ Finally Becomes a Chalk Outline With Series Finale (Spoilers)

‘CSI’ Finally Becomes a Chalk Outline With Series Finale (Spoilers)
Appreciating the “CSI” finale – 15 years, countless bodies, piles of cash, and multiple spinoffs later – really requires going back to the beginning. This was a show that CBS had relatively little faith in, placing it behind what the network saw as its likely star in the class of 2000, “The Fugitive,” on Friday nights. Disney was so disappointed about the scheduling the studio, which developed it, backed out as a financier, one of those decisions that produce headaches and finger-pointing with eight or nine zeroes attached.

All that came to an end on Sunday night, with a two-hour movie intended to provide an element of closure. By now, of course, the ratings had shrunk to a fraction of where they were in the program’s heyday, with multiple cast changes and different leads (William Petersen, Laurence Fishburne, Ted Danson) over the run.

Among the program’s more dubious contributions to society was

‘CSI’ Finale: Creator Anthony Zuiker on Emotional Endings, Origins and Longevity

It’s one of TV’s great rags-to-riches stories: Young guy from Las Vegas delivers a global smash hit with his first-ever TV script.

Anthony Zuiker, 47, was not so far removed from his job driving a tram for a Sin City hotel when he managed to field the pilot for “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” for Jerry Bruckheimer TV and CBS in 2000. A well-arranged marriage of Zuiker with veteran showrunners Carol Mendelsohn and Ann Donahue set “CSI” off on a journey that would change the course of TV history and spawn three spinoffs, most recently the Patricia Arquette starrer “CSI: Cyber.”

With the mothership wrapping its 15-year run with a two-hour movie airing Sunday night, creator/exec producer Zuiker spoke with Variety about the emotional experience of writing the finale, reuniting with original “CSI” stars William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger and his deep appreciation for Mendelsohn, Donahue, CBS’ Nina Tassler, Leslie Moonves

Devoted fan and Entertainment Weekly writer Lynette Rice moderated the event and began with a question directed to creator Anthony E. Zuiker. Rice asked how he thought to redefine the television crime genre, singing the iconic theme song, “Who were you, who who who who?”

“I was watching a show called ‘The New Detectives’ on the Discovery Channel and saw a forensic docu-drama… about a cheerleader who was killed and they pulled a long blonde hair out of the headrest,” Zuiker started.

After a voice-over explained the cause of death from studying the strand, Zuiker said, “That’s when I learned that the body really is the perfect

‘CSI’ to Wrap 15-Season Run in September with Two-Hour Finale
CBS is saying goodbye to the show that turned the network’s fortunes around some 15 years ago. “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” will wrap its 15-season run in September with a two-hour finale that will reunite original stars William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger.

The finale will air Sept. 27 and feature other returning cast members who have been on the forensic procedural over its run. Ted Danson, the current “CSI” star, will relocate to the latest spinoff, “CSI: Cyber,” opposite Patricia Arquette.

Five high-tech lessons to be learned from CSI Cyber

Times have changed. And so has crime. “The bank robbery of yesterday was going into a bank, breaking in, taking a lot of money,” says Anthony E. Zuiker, one of the creators, writers and executive producers of the various incarnations of CBS’s CSI crime shows. According to Zuiker, the bank robbery of tomorrow will be a cyber crime – one that involves “taking three cents out of your account” – and millions of others. The growing danger of cyber crime is the inspiration behind CSI: Cyber. The rookie drama series casts Patricia Arquette as Special Agent Avery Ryan, the head … Continue reading →

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” is at the top of the world.

The long-running CBS crime drama broke the Guinness World Record for the largest television drama simulcast of all time, airing in 171 countries on March 4, dubbed “World CSI Day.” The net announced the achievement Tuesday.

Exec producers Jerry Bruckheimer, Anthony Zuiker and Jonathan Littman (pictured) received the award.

The particular episode that broke the world record, titled “Kitty,” originally aired in the States on April 30, 2014, and acted as the planted spinoff for “CSI: Cyber,” which premiered as its own standalone series this month.

The flagship “CSI” series has launched three spinoffs — most recently “Cyber,” in which Oscar winner Patricia Arquette stars, plus “CSI: Miami” and “CSI: NY,” both of which were huge successes but are no longer on the air. “Miami” ran for 10 seasons from 2002 to 2012, and “NY” for nine seasons, ending in 2013.
