CSI: Miami's Adam Rodriguez Called on To Write/Direct Episode Covering a Delicate Subject

Get More: News

For his encore as a writer and director of a CSI: Miami episode, cast member Adam Rodriguez hasn’t been handed just any old run-and-gun case.

Rather, Rodriguez — who last season cut his teeth on both fronts with a footchase-filled, Most Dangerous Game-flavored episode — this time will tell a story about child molestation, “so we’re going to have to be very careful with the subject matter,” executive producer Marc Dube tells TVLine. “But if anybody can handle it, it’s Adam.”

Dube acknowledges that “with all the Penn State stuff going on,” the delicate subject matter “is kind of a headline these days, but it’s a topic were going to try to tackle with our people.

“And because it is a sticky topic, if anybody can communicate that to the actors it’s Adam,” Dube continues. “He’s quite familiar with the process and how to get performances out of people, because it’s what he does [as an actor], so I think he’s a good person to pull it off.”

Rodriguez’s second writing/directing effort is tentatively set to air in March.

    • There should be an episode, of he and Calleigh. This was a fantasy romance, there should be a story line written just for them. They make the ideal couple. Writers and directors should think about it. I’m sure i’m not the only one who feels this way.

      • I agree. I think Adam & Calleigh make a great couple and would like to see a storyline with them. I also so glad he’s back…

      • I agree one hundered precent that there should be a show that really connects Adam and Emily’s characters romantically together! I love them as a couple. The producers teased us with a few episodes in the past with them but we need more, in the near future!!!!!!!

      • Please hit shiftlock next time, dude. I like Adam, and Eric, but I have to confess, I’m kinda looking forward to the show ending so AR can move on to something else. It seems as if CSI:M isn’t interested in developing its characters much any more.

    • I cannot wait to see this upcoming episode of c.s.i. miami where Adam displays his creative side writing on a powerful and meaningful subject matter. He is so talented and such a wonderful actor, I know that this upcoming episode will be a HIT! Hopefully in the futre, the producers of the show will give him more opportunities to write other shows.

  • Been waiting to see Adam’s next episode that he writes and directs for months! He is so extremely talented that I have no doubt this will be a heartfelt story, masterfully executed! Best of luck to you, Adam. I’ll definitely be watching!

  • Sounds like quite the challenge for Adam.

    As I remember, CSI Miami carried a similar episode (but not written by Adam) in season 1. Will this episode be anything like that?

  • So the subject of the article is how the showrunners feel that Adam Rodriguez can handle a difficult subject with class and tact..and many of the comments are about people wanting to get into his pants. Classy, losers.

  • Not only is Adam a total Hottie but he’s also one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. I know because we went to high school together. So proud to see what a success he’s become.

  • I agree; he will do well. This is a tough subject because of the emotional pain for the molested and for the family of the molested. A point I want to make is that parents who have an open line of communication with their child doesn’t insure they will “tell” if they are being molested. I hope that Adam is able to get it out there that no matter what the molester say or threatens they should tell, tell and tell their parents. I am able to talk to my family and yet there still was a family member who didn’t tell. We have to make it clear that no matter what the molester say the “I’ll kill you parents,” the they won’t believe you,” or whatever still come tell someone who loves you. We must become stronger then the child molester in that we have the power not the molester.
