Since its debut in 2000, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation has been one of the most popular television shows in both the United States and around the world.

On Saturday, September 15 at 7:00 p.m., the secrets of CSI are revealed as Lecturers David Berman and Jon Wellner will take their audience inside the hit forensic drama.

Now for the first time, these two actors/researchers will detail the exciting process of how each episode is created, from the story's conception in the Writers Room all the way through post production and finally on to the television screen.

Berman and Wellner are not only actors on the program, but they maintain a database of over 300 professionals working in virtually all aspects of law enforcement. They'll discuss how they use these contacts to research CSI, and view excerpts from the show that illustrate how that research is incorporated into each episode.

Other topics of discussion include behind the scene stories about your favorite episodes; science vs. entertainment and the so-called "CSI effect"; and comparison of the fictional Universal Studios set with a real crime lab in Vegas.

There will be a question and answer session following the program.

Tickets are $10 with a $3 discount for Museum Members.

Tickets may be purchased in person or online here.

As seating for this event is very limited, advanced ticket purchase is recommended.
