Patricia Arquette has been tapped to star in CBS’s upcoming “CSI” spinoff.
The spinoff, a cyber-crime drama that will be planted within the hit CBS drama, will explore a world where technology has amplified human behavior to the point where faceless criminals are committing crimes at global proportions with the touch of a button.
Arquette will play Avery Ryan, a special agent in charge at the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI in Quantico, Va., who’s tasked to solve high-octane crimes that start in the mind, live online, and play out into the real world.
“CSI” creator Anthony E. Zuiker is writing and executive producing, along with “CSI” writers/producers Carol Mendelsohn and Ann Donahue. “CSI” executive producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman will also executive produce the new spinoff.
CBS Television Studios is producing in association with Bruckheimer Television.
Arquette is represented by Gersh and 3 Arts Entertainment
