fe TV listings for Sept. 22-28,2002 Forensics experts hit Florida as CBS' 'CSI: Miami'debuts By JAY BOBBIN ©ZAP2TT If it can be done in Las Vegas, it can be done in Miami. That's how CBS and the producers of "GSI: Crime Scene Investigation" see it, anyway Now 2 years old, that crime drama has displayed ratings power from the start, prompting the network to think "spinoff." The thought becomes reality Monday as the premiere of the much-anticipated "CSI: Miami" tries to prove forensics investigations can be as compelling in the Florida heat as in the Nevada glitz. Again counting moviemaker Jerry Bruckheimer ("Pearl Harbor," "Black Hawk Down") among its executive producers, the new show was previewed last season on the original "CSI." David Caruso returns to series television as team leader Horatio Caine, who measures what he says while staying constantly analytical. That often brings him into conflict with DNA expert Megan Donner (Kim Delaney, another "NYPD Blue" veteran), and the fireworks between them aren't just work-related. Emily Procter ("The West Wing"), Rory Cochrane ("Hart's War"), Khandi Alexander ("NewsRadio") and Adam Rodriguez ("Roswell") round out the new show's cast. "We received a rather pleasant phone call from (CBS President and CEO Leslie) Moonves saying, 'We'd like to do a spinoff,'" recalls Anthony Zuiker, creator-producer of the original "CSI." "We talked about an appropriate venue — Chicago, New York, Los Angeles — and we decided on Miami. In terms of the tones of the shows, Las Vegas is a little more quirky and Miami is a little guttural, a little more political. It's a town of passion, and it becomes a character itself. In Las Vegas, you go to escape and not be seen. In Miami, you go to be seen." • COVER STORY /SEE PAGE 2 MONDAY Jordan (Jill Hennessy) makes an all- out effort to solve her mother's murder in the second-season premiere of "Crossing Jordan" on NBC.
