Anthony Zuiker, creator of the most-watched TV series in the world, "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," is leaving CBS Television Studios after a 12-year stint," reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Zuiker will be moving to ABC Studios, the article says.
According to the story, "Under the three-year, first-look deal, Zuiker and his company, Dare to Pass, will partner on developing scripted series with Brillstein Entertainment Partners, which also is based at ABC Studios. Perhaps ironically, ABC Studios passed on ‘CSI’ more than a decade ago."
The article also notes, "Zuiker is still an executive producer on the ‘CSI’ franchise but does not serve as showrunner on any of them."
