At the recent UBS Global Media and Communications Conference, CBS President and CEO Les Moonves suggested that CSI: Cyber will resonate with audiences due to current events. According to The Wrap, Moonves said:
If we see what’s happening in the world … with Sony, and Home Depot, and all these other companies, it’s a pretty relevant subject matter. It happens to be a very good show. Can we get another ‘CSI’ hit? That would be nice. We got another ‘NCIS’ hit. Once again, remember, each one of those shows have turned into billion-dollar profit-makers. So, it’s nice to know that. It’s nice to look at the future that way.
As CSI Files previously reported, Cyber will premiere on Wednesday, March 4 at 10:00pm ET/PT.
