Friday 24th June 2016
From the creative team behind the ground-breaking and hugely popular CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Anthony E. Zuicker, Carol Mendhelson and Executive Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, CSI: Cyber is another gripping and intense crime drama focusing on the 21st century cyber-crime phenomenon.
The series follows an elite team of FBI Special Agents from the FBI Cyber division, based in Washington D.C., tasked with investigating cyber crimes in the US - internet-related murders, cyber theft, hacking, blackmail, and any other crime deemed to be cyber-related comes under its jurisdiction.
Phones, computers, games consoles, any electronic device can be used by a criminal to aid and abet in their illegal activities but that technology is also the key to catching them and it is up to the Cyber division to always be one step ahead.
Special Agent Avery Ryan (Patricia Arquette - Boyhood), a noted behavioural psychologist turned cyber shrink, heads up the unit along with D.B. Russell (Ted Danson), the former head of the CSI crime lab in Las Vegas. They are aided by a former marine Elijah Mundo (James Van Der Beek - Dawson's Creek), Simon Sifter (Peter MacNicol - Ally McBeal), computer security expert Daniel Krumitz (Charley Koontz) and two former criminal hackers Raven Ramirez (Hayley Kiyoko) and Brody Nelson (Shad Moss) who have been recruited by Ryan to work for her in lieu of receiving a prison sentence.
This exciting new series is based on the real-life work of Mary Aiken, a pioneering cyber-psychologist, and brings the traditional CSI forensic techniques forward into the 21st century and beyond.
CSI: Cyber Season 1 is released on DVD by Entertainment One on 27th June 2016
