Jon Wellner and David Berman

Since its debut in 2000, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” has been one of the most popular television shows both nationally and internationally. Now, for the first time, the secrets of “CSI” are revealed as actors/researchers David Berman and Jon Wellner take you inside the hit forensic drama, in “CSI Exposed: Behind the Scenes of the Hit TV Show.” This presentation will be held at Wednesday, January 16, 2013, at 9 p.m. in Perkins Student Center Auditorium. This presentation is free an open to the public.

Berman and Wellner will compare the fictional Universal Studios crime lab with a real Las Vegas crime lab, and discuss science versus entertainment in the so-called “CSI Effect.” You’ll learn how “CSI” is researched and view excerpts that illustrate how that information is incorporated into the show, as they detail the process of how each episode of procedural television is created, from the story’s conception in the writers’ room all the way through post-production.

This presentation is part of the Penn State Berks Arts and Lecture series. For more information, contact the Office of Campus Life at 610-396-6076.
