"Mr. CSI" on the Future of Crime Novels and Facing Real-World Death
Anthony Zuiker is best known as “Mr. CSI,” creator of one of TV’s most iconic shows. But he’s also an author who has created a series of crime “digi-novels” that are full-on multimedia experiences — the Level 26 series. Dark Revelations is the newest book in the series, and its finale. Zuiker also has written his own story in Mr. CSI: How a Vegas Dreamer Made a Killing in Hollywood, One Body at a Time, digging into his father’s death, his not-so-overnight success in Hollywood and how his TV show became an empire. He talks exclusively with Amazon about what surprised him most as he wrote his memoir, why he's telling this story now, and what makes the Level 26 series special.
Hear more of our interview with Zuiker on the Amazon Studios blog, where he talks about the Vegas influence, how CSI has grown and changed, and making it in Hollywood. And, on Amazon’s Armchair Commentary blog, Zuiker shares behind-the-scenes stories and his true feelings about David Caruso and those sunglasses.
