The CSI franchise is finally going for the obvious with a crossover storyline set to span across Miami, New York and Las Vegas.
Laurence Fishburne’s character is set to follow the tale across all three editions.
The story will begin when a severed leg is discovered in the Everglades belonging to a girl who went missing from Las Vegas a week earlier, Horatio Caine (David Caruso) sends for Dr. Ray Langston (Laurence Fishburne).
“The story is really a ticking clock story,” says CSI: NY‘s executive producer Peter Lenkov. “It is really a hunt for a suspect, but also saving a girl’s life. I think we put blinders on to get that done by the end of the episode. This [case] takes priority because it is real triage the way it lands in our lap.
“We realise soon after that time is of the essence. We elected in that episode to make it our sole focus.”
The episode will air in the US in November, which will make scheduling interesting at Nine, given we’re in the new season of CSI but behind on the other two franchises.
Should be good one to catch though…
