'CSI: NY' Synopsis:

New York is the city that never sleeps, and neither do the forensic investigators when they get to work on a big case.

CSI: NY is the third forensic crime drama in the franchise, and probably the grittiest of them all. The cases on this show tend to be a bit more believable, almost as if they were ripped from the headlines.

As with the other two series, this one uses the high-tech science to follow the evidence and solve crimes. However, unlike the other two, the CSI's tend to do quite a bit of that dangerous police work, making this version very intense much of the time.
