CSI fans who desperately miss William Petersen may get some relief soon, courtesy of Cinemax: The pay cabler has ordered a pilot that will feature the ex-Gil Grissom as a hit man.
In the script Hurt People from Peter Macmanus (Hollywoodland), Petersen plays a crime family baddo who is tasked with locating his estranged daughter. The young woman is seeking to avenge the death of her mom, who was killed by the mob.
If ordered to series, the project would mark Petersen’s return to the series TV since he left CSI as a series regular. The actor is also an executive producer on the project from GK-TV.
