CBS COMMITS TO SIX EPISODES OF CSI: WHITE HOUSE; ICONIC FRANCHISE WILL FOCUS ON CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES OF CURRENT PRESIDENT TRUMP, HIS FAMILY & ASSOCIATES
Los Angeles (eTruePolitics) – CSI is back. White House version.
And the producers have congressman Chris Collins to thank for it.
“This fool Collins committing a crime on video on the South Lawn didn’t hurt our pitch,” admitted producer Anthony Zuiker, who created the iconic CBS series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. “Now that he’s quitting in disgrace, even better.
“But we’ve been working on episode ideas based on this Gang-That-Can’t-Shoot-Straight for months.
“CSI: White House has the feeling of a new franchise,” added Zuiker who candidly shared that CBS had only committed to six episodes.
“CBS is being cautious,” said Zuiker, “they think Trump could self-destruct by Monday morning. I wouldn’t bet against it. But, I think we’ve only scratched the surface of the Trumpian crime story potential.
“Rich, dumb criminals are a producer’s dream come true. With this Trump thug/mob, we’ll never run out of stories. Or crime scenes.”
Sources close to CSI: White House say the pilot episode will be shot on location at Paul Manfort’s Bridgehampton estate.
“We rented it from him,” said one source. “Manfort’s dead broke, got it for a song.”
