PASADENA, CA, JULY 13, 2006 - A&E Network kicks off its exclusive cable television presentation of CSI: MIAMI with a Labor Day Marathon, on Monday, September 4, 2006 from 8am to 9pm ET/PT, it was announced today by Bob DeBitetto, Executive Vice President and General Manager, A&E Network. The critically acclaimed series will run on A&E every weeknight at 8pm ET & PT / 7pm CT, beginning that evening.
"CSI: MIAMI will offer our viewers the ideal entryway to a programming lineup of exciting, character and story-driven original A&E series, Monday through Friday," said DeBitetto. "CSI: MIAMI is smart, gripping, high-quality and fast-paced - the perfect scripted complement to A&E hits like DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER, KING OF CARS and CRISS ANGEL MINDFREAK."
Fast-paced forensics drama CSI: MIAMI revolves around a South Florida team of forensic investigators who use both cutting-edge scientific methods and old-fashioned police work to solve crimes. Horatio Caine (David Caruso), a former homicide detective, heads a group of investigators who work crimes amid the steamy, tropical surroundings and cultural crossroads of Miami. Caine often relies on a mix of gut instinct and the more straight-forward evidence. Megan Donner (Kim Delaney), a DNA specialist and the former head of the unit challenges his gut instinct with her trust in science.
The team includes Calleigh Dusquene (Emily Procter), a bilingual Southern beauty with a specialty in ballistics; Tim Speedle (Rory Cochrane), a cocky yet disarming investigator who is well connected on the street, and Eric Delko (Adam Rodriguez), an underwater recovery expert who knows all the twists and turns of the Florida waterways; and Alexx Woods (Khandi Alexander), the no-nonsense, know-it-all coroner. Lt. Yelina Salas (Sofia Milos) is the widow of Horatio's brother Raymond. Together, these investigators collect and analyze the evidence to solve the crimes and to vindicate those who often cannot speak for themselves -- the victims.
CSI: MIAMI is produced by Alliance Atlantis, in association with CBS Productions. Jerry Bruckheimer, Carol Mendelsohn, Ann Donahue and Anthony Zuiker are executive producers.
