CBS Orders Pilot for Cyber Crimes ‘CSI’ Spinoff That Will Air as ‘CSI’ Episode This Spring
CBS has greenlit a pilot for a fourth CSI spinoff, Deadline reports. The proposed series will focus on cyber crimes, not forensics, and will chronicle the cases solved by Avery Ryan, Special Agent in Charge at the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI in Quantico, Virginia. The pilot will air as a CSI episode this spring. The proposed new series does not yet have a title or a star. Given that Avery is a gender neutral name, maybe CBS will be bold and make a woman the lead character on one of its procedurals.
