CSI: Crime Scene Investigation is an edgy, fast-paced, one-hour drama about a passionate team of forensic investigators who work the graveyard shift at the Las Vegas Criminalistics Bureau.
Their job is to find the missing pieces at the scene that will help to solve the crime and vindicate those who often cannot speak for themselves - the victims.
Veteran producer Jerry Bruckheimer, creator Anthony E. Zuiker, and executive producers Carol Mendelsohn and Ann Donahue guide one of the most innovative and successful one-hour crime dramas in primetime television.
CSI - the acronym for Crime Scene Investigation - tells the story of the little-known and less understood heroes who work crime scenes - the forensic investigators.
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.
Under Gil Grissom's watchful eye, the team uses both cutting-edge scientific methods and old-fashioned savvy to solve their crimes, driven to succeed by the pact they have made with the public they serve.
"Let the evidence bring justice to the victims and closure to the survivors."
In the Season 8 premiere, "Dead Doll": Sara's fate remains in question as the CSI team rushes to find out if she survived an attack by the miniature killer.
