‘CSI’ Consultant to Speak at WSU ConvocationJan 17, 2006 OGDEN, Utah – Dr. Gary Telgenhoff, a forensic pathologist and consultant to CBS’s hit television series “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” will discuss his work with the show Jan. 25 at noon in Weber State University’s Shepherd Union Wildcat Theater.
Telgenhoff has been a consultant for the hit series since before it premiered in 2000. Although CBS has added other “CSI” shows based in Miami and New York, Telgenhoff primarily works with the original series.
Shortly after Telgenhoff moved to Las Vegas in 1998 to become the Deputy Medical Examiner for Clark County, he met Anthony Zuiker, a tram driver who was developing the idea for a television series about forensics scientists in Las Vegas. Zuiker would frequently quiz Telgenhoff about his job. When CBS decided to purchase the rights to the show, Zuiker became an executive producer, and Telgenhoff became his consultant.
“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” in its sixth season, airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. in Utah on KUTV Channel 2.
The event, part of WSU’s Convocation Lecture Series, is free to the public.
