A longtime showrunner on the CBS procedural "CSI" is stepping down. TheWrap.com reports that the long-running drama series' co-showrunner Carol Mendelsohn is exiting the role but will remain as an executive producer on the show and on the new “CSI: Cyber.”
Mendelsohn has been with "CSI" since it first rolled out 14 years ago. Her exit leaves Don McGill as the flagship show’s only showrunner, the story reports. McGill has worked as co-showrunner since 2010.
In a statement, Mendelsohn said: “It's been a long and amazing journey and I am so proud of ‘CSI's’ continued success. In handing over the helm to my dear friend and partner, Don McGill, I know he and our 'CSI' team will carry on brilliantly what we've all created together."
Her statement adds: “‘CSI,’ its cast and crew, writers and directors, will always be my family. I have learned so much from each and every one of them. About writing, producing and life. For that, and so much more, I am forever grateful.”
