CSI: Crime Scene Investigation is a fast-paced drama about a team of forensic investigators trained to solve crimes by examining the evidence.
They are on the case 24/7, scouring the scene, collecting the irrefutable evidence and finding the missing pieces that will solve the mystery.
Catherine Willows, a hard-working single parent with a checkered past and a teenage daughter she's raising on her own, heads the team of investigators at the Crime Lab in Las Vegas, following previous leader Gil Grissom's departure.
The team's other members include Dr. Raymond Langston (Laurence Fishburne), a former pathologist who joins the Las Vegas Crime Lab after consulting on a serial killer case; Nick Stokes (George Eads), a true-blue stand-up guy who empathizes with victims via his own experiences; and Greg Sanders (Eric Szmanda), the off-beat tech analyst turned field investigator.
The CSI team members also work closely with Capt. Jim Brass (Paul Guilfoyle), the former chief, now assigned to Homicide; Dr. Albert Robbins (Robert David Hall), the ever-professional medical examiner and his assistant, David Phillips (David Berman); and David Hodges (Wallace Langham) and Wendy Simms (Liz Vassey), lab technicians with specialties in trace and foreign-substance analysis.
These are the men and women who work 24/7 to untangle the evidence behind the yellow police lines, piecing together seemingly insignificant puzzle pieces to nail the bad guys and serve those who are most important and sometimes overlooked - the victims.
The CSIs sift through the murders, suicides, robberies and violent crimes that threaten the streets of Las Vegas, on and off the Strip, moving beyond the neon decadence to seediest and deadliest corners of the infamous city in the desert.
"Let the evidence bring justice to the victims and closure to the survivors."
In the Season 10 premiere, "Family Affair": The CSI team, with the unexpected but welcome return of Sara, comes together to investigate the death of a famous young actress killed in a dubious traffic collision.
