Rob Zombie‘s upcoming turn in the director’s chair for CSI: Miami dredges up the past and provides a change of scenery for several members of the team. (Spoilers after the jump!)
As CSI Files previously reported, Zombie will helm the sixteenth episode of Miami‘s eighth season. The episode, tentatively titled “LA”, is scheduled to air on March 1. When a murder is committed in Miami, a voice recording captures the death on tape—and possibly the killer’s voice. However, the evidence becomes inadmissible when it is discovered that Jesse Cardoza (newcomer Eddie Cibrian) planted the recording device. The situation brings up accusations of evidence tampering in a case Jesse worked in Los Angeles, California, sending Horatio Caine (David Caruso) and Eric Delko (Adam Rodriguez) to the City of Angels to uncover the truth and hopefully clear Jesse’s name.
“As writers, we were really pushing to create an interesting backdrop that could lend to Rob Zombie’s visual style,” said co-executive producer Marc Dube. “We thought opening the episode at a macabre party, with Miami attendees all wearing stylized masks (a la Eyes Wide Shut) would be a fun kick-off point for Rob to do what he does best: conveying the cruel and creepy underbelly of humanity.” Zombie added, “I am very excited to be working on a show that has such an intense and unique visual angle on the classic crime drama formula and look forward to putting my own bizarre stamp on the world of CSI: Miami.”
