Are there any “CSI” fans still out there? Good news, fans can prepare for yet another Spin-off to the crime drama series planned by CBS. Series creator Anthony E. Zuiker, Carol Mendelsohn and Ann Donahue will pen the script. Inspired by producer Mary Aiken’s work as a cyber-psychologist, “the spinoff explores technology, as we know it, and how it has amplified human behavior to the point where faceless criminals are committing crimes at global proportions with a touch of a button. Avery Ryan, special agent in charge at the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI in Quantico, VA, is tasked to solve high-octane crimes that start in the mind, live on-line, and play out into the real world.“

The spin-off will be introduced as a back-door pilot, which will air as a spring episode in the procedural’s current 14th season. No casting announcement have been made, and CBS will decide the fate of the spin-off series by mid-May. CSI: Miami showrunners Zuiker, Donahue and Carol Mendelsohn will executive produce the spin-off along with Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. Aiken will receive a producer credit.
