Showrunner Pam Veasey talked to CBS News about Danson's joining the show, explaining that: He's coming over from CSI because he wasn't quite finished with the crime world. He is the director of Next Generation Forensics. So he combines the CSI world of fingerprints and DNA with the technology of next generation products. He's the one always bringing in the newest thing, like a baby pacifier, that is Bluetooth ... He then gives it to our team of hackers, our young people, and says, 'Hack this so we're one step ahead of the bad guy.' Some of the subjects we'll get to see as cases on the show this season include home security systems, plane travel and hospital visits. Veasey reveals: We're going to touch on that fabulous concept of remote cars, cars without drivers. So all the things that people are hearing about are going to be stories that we're telling.
