“Horatio is in that phase where, as closure is happening, all sorts of powerful emotions rise to the surface, and there’s also an opportunity for transition, for moving on.” Make sure not to miss this when CSI: Miami enters its 10 th season on Saturday, September 22nd at 9:30pm on 3.

CSI: Miami’s Adam Rodriguez (Eric Delko) adds writer and director to his resume with this week’s episode, “Hunting Ground”, screening on Saturday, July 28 th at 9:30pm on 3. Rodriguez has been on CSI: Miami since the series began in 2002, and “Hunting Ground” gave him the chance to add writer and director to his resume. However, he limited his screen-time in the episode so he wouldn’t be overwhelmed.

“I knew that I was taking on this new challenge, and there are a tremendous number of responsibilities that go along with directing,” the actor explains. “The director has to be on top of every detail of everything that goes on, every minute of the day. I didn’t want to bite off more than I could chew, so I just sprinkled myself in the episode.”

CSI: Miami leading man David Caruso (Horatio Caine) was a great resource for Rodriguez during the whole process.

“He had some great ideas and would make suggestions, and then we would build on them together,” Rodriguez explains.

“I was happy to take all of his years of film experience and put them to work. And watching [Caruso] from behind the camera gave me an even greater appreciation for what he does.” “It’s going to be a real high-octane episode,” adds series producer Barry O’Brien. “It starts with a victim cross bowed to a tree in the Everglades, and it’s literally an action movie from the first frame. It’s really an exciting event for us.” Make sure not to miss this when CSI: Miami continues its ninth season on Saturday, July 28th at 9:30pm on 3.
