Here was the reply from CBS, dated May 4, 2003- almost a year before CSI: New York ever aired.
Dear [name deleted for obvious reasons],
Thank you for your interest in CSI. Unfortunately, we already have two many CSIs as it is. Furthermore, your scripts were far too demented for national television, even by CSI standards. The vicious murder scenes, in particular, were detailed so graphically that I cannot imagine a viewer watching more than five minutes without developing deep psychological problems. Merely alluding to the forms of torture you described would give Guantanamo Bay detainees nightmares.
Also, all your male characters appear to be gay, yet unaware of their sexual orientation. Not sure what that's all about.
Director of Creative Development
The guy at CBS didn't actually write "Dear [name deleted for obvious reasons]." That was me. Also, I suspect he gave me a false name.
How can you direct creative development, anyway?
