CSI: Miami (Crime Scene Investigation: Miami) is an American police procedural television series that ran from September 23, 2002, to April 8, 2012, on CBS. It is the first spin-off of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

The pilot episode was first broadcast in the United States on May 9, 2002, as a season 2 episode of CSI. The series was produced in partnership with the Canadian media company Alliance Atlantis and CBS Television Studios.

CSI: Miami follows Crime Scene Investigators working for the Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD) as they use physical evidence, similar to their Las Vegas counterparts, to solve grisly murders. The series mixes deduction, gritty subject matter, and character-driven drama in the same vein as the original series in the CSI franchise, except that the Miami CSIs are cops first, scientists second.[citation needed]

On February 1, 2012, the network announced that the 10th season of CSI: Miami would be trimmed to 19 episodes to make room for the debut of mid-season replacement NYC 22.[1] On May 13, 2012, both series were canceled.[2][3]

Production[edit]

CSI: Miami was filmed primarily in California. Indoor scenes were shot at Raleigh Manhattan Studios in Manhattan Beach, California. Most outdoor scenes were filmed in Long Beach, as well as portions of Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach. Beach areas of Marina Green Park and Rainbow Lagoon Park in downtown Long Beach were often used for other outdoor scenes, as the newly constructed high-rise condos there gave the pretense of being in Miami. Many outdoor location shots were also filmed in Miami-Dade County, Florida, including Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, and Miami Beach.[citation needed]

The sculptured walkway paying tribute to the old Pike Roller Coaster can be seen in the background in the episodes "Wrecking Crew" and "Under The Influence". Footage from the Biscayne Courthouse, visible prominently in the episode "Recoil", among others, was filmed at the Water Garden Park in Santa Monica, at 34.028728, -118.471331.[4] Other locations of Long Beach are used such as the Naples district, where its canals and upscale homes with large boat docks and palm trees give a feel of Miami.[citation needed]

The building used for exterior shots of the Miami-Dade Police Department crime lab is actually the Federal Aviation Administration Federal Credit Union headquarters located at 14600 Aviation Boulevard in Hawthorne, California.[citation needed]

The series was canceled by CBS after the 10th season, making it the first series in the CSI franchise to be canceled.[5]

Plot[edit]

Inspired by the series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami follows a South Florida team of forensic investigators/police officers who use both cutting-edge scientific methods and old-fashioned police work to solve crimes. Lieutenant Horatio Caine heads the team of investigators while working crimes in the steamy tropical surroundings and cultural crossroads of Miami. Horatio, his second in command Detective Calleigh Duquesne, and their team (Delko, Boa Vista, Wolfe, Tripp, Simmons, Donner, Speedle, Woods, Price, Salas, Loman, and Cardoza) probe cases similar to those of their Las Vegas counterparts, but Miami CSIs are cops first and scientists second.[citation needed]

* The Region 4 releases of the first two seasons were initially divided up into two parts of 11 or 12 episodes before being released in full season DVD "fat packs", with large cases compared to the slimline cases DVD distributors opt for now. The release dates detailed here are for the re-released seasons in slimline cases. The two-part releases as well as the "fat pack" full season releases of the first two seasons were released much earlier than these re-releases. The subsequent seasons were first released in the slimline cases.

** = Dates for re-released slim line full season packaging; all half-seasons have been discontinued.

The CSI: Miami Region 2 DVD releases are released in two parts, the first part is released with 11, 12 or 13 episodes and then the second part is released containing the rest of the episodes and special features are split up between the two parts and on the same day that the second part is released they are available for purchase as a full season. All seasons have now been re-released in full.

Other releases[edit]

CSI has also been released as a series of mobile games. In fall 2007, CBS teamed up with game developer Gameloft to bring CSI to mobile phones. The first of the series to be published was CSI: Miami. The game features actual cast members such as Horatio Caine, Alexx Woods and Calleigh Duquesne who are trying to solve a murder in South Beach with the player's assistance.[32] The game is also available for download on various iPod devices.[33]

In 2008, Gameloft and CBS released CSI: Crime Scene Investigation – The Mobile Game which is based on the original series in Las Vegas, NV. This game introduces the unique ability to receive calls during the game to provide tips and clues about crime scenes and evidence. As for the storyline, the game developers collaborated with Anthony E. Zuiker (the series creator) to ensure that the plot and dialogue were aligned with the show's style.[34]
