CBS has snagged Gary Sinise to star in its New York spinoff of CSI: Miami, itself a spin-off of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. CSI: New York debuts in the fall withs Sinise playing Det. Rick Calucci.
A rather enthusiastic and definitely New York-centric Anthony Zuiker, one of the executive producers of the franchise, said this: "Gary Sinese and New York are solid gold. Together we are looking forward to bringing New Yorkers an important show in the Golden Era of Television."
