Bucking the trend of crime shows that focus solely on the workplace, exec producer Pam Veasey says for season 5, ”we decided we would bring the audience into moments when [the characters] go home. We’re introducing relationships like brothers and sisters” — specifically, the bad-girl sister of Eddie Cahill’s Detective Flack, who’ll be played by Kathleen Munroe. Veasey says CSI: NY wants ”to be very hip, very youthful, very contemporary, so Maroon 5 open up our second episode, performing. And we have Nelly in our episode 3, playing a confidential informant.” Yep, nothing says ”hip” like Maroon 5 and Nelly!
