AUTEUR, FILMMAKER AND ROCK MUSICIAN ROB ZOMBIE TO DIRECT AN EPISODE OF "CSI: MIAMI," TO BE BROADCAST MONDAY, MARCH 1

Show Marks the Director's First Foray Into Television

Filmmaker and musician Rob Zombie will bring his unique style of filmmaking to an episode of CSI: MIAMI, to be broadcast Monday, March 1 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The episode marks Zombie's television directorial debut.

In the episode, the CSI team discovers that a listening device has been covertly planted at a crime scene, capturing a terrifying soundtrack of the murder and, possibly, the voice of the killer. However, when it's revealed that the bug was planted by the team's own Jesse Cardoza (Eddie Cibrian), the State's Attorney tosses the taped evidence and uncovers accusations of evidence tampering by Jesse on a murder case in Los Angeles. With the integrity of his team at stake, Horatio Caine (David Caruso) and Eric Delko (Adam Rodriguez) travel to Los Angeles to investigate and clear Jesse's name. While in Los Angeles, Horatio find himself face-to- face with secrets from Jesse's past and a dangerous element within the LAPD.

"As writers, we were really pushing to create an interesting backdrop that could lend to Rob Zombie's visual style," says Marc Dube, co-executive producer. "We thought opening the episode at a macabre party, with Miami attendees all wearing stylized masks (a la "Eyes Wide Shut") would be a fun kick-off point for Rob to do what he does best: conveying the cruel and creepy underbelly of humanity."

"I am very excited to be working on a show that has such an intense and unique visual angle on the classic crime drama formula and look forward to putting my own bizarre stamp on the world of CSI: MIAMI," says Zombie.

A prolific musician, Zombie has multiple gold and platinum records, sales of over 15 million albums worldwide, and has directed over 25 music videos. His next album, "Hellbilly Deluxe 2," will be released on Feb. 2nd. His re-imagining of "Halloween" claimed the highest-grossing Labor Day weekend opening ever, followed by the 2009 success of "Halloween 2." His film accomplishments also include the critically acclaimed "The Devil's Rejects" and the cult classic "House of 1000 Corpses." Zombie has made a distinct mark in the music and film worlds with his uniquely sinister point of view that has resulted in success in both arenas.

CSI: MIAMI ranks among the top 20 programs, averaging 13.6 million viewers and continues to dominate its Monday (10:00-11:00 PM) time period in viewers and key demographics. Bookmark and Share
