‘CSI’s’ Zuiker joins Banff TV fest lineup

Town will host '60 Minutes' on June 13

TORONTO — “CSI” creator and executive producer Anthony Zuiker has signed on to participate in the 26th Banff World Television Festival, which runs June 12-15.

The Canadian Rocky Mountain resort town will host “60 Minutes With Anthony E. Zuiker” on June 13.

Just eight years ago, Zuiker was a tram driver at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas while he worked on developing his first feature script, “The Runner” (the 1999 pic starred Courteney Cox, John Goodman and Joe Mantegna). He went on to create “CSI” and its spinoff skeins.

“There’s no doubt we all have a lot to learn from Anthony Zuiker,” said fest CEO Robert Montgomery.

Zuiker also will present the Global Television Achievement Award to Alliance Atlantis Communications, co-producer and distrib outside the U.S. of the “CSI” franchise. “CSI” has sold to more than 170 countries.

Other industry luminaries appearing at Banff include Jon Cassar, director and co-exec producer of “24”; Oscar-winning writer Lionel Chetwynd; “Bad News” author and former CBS news correspondent Tom Fenton; and “Carnivale” and “Six Feet Under” director Jeremy Podeswa.
