LOS ANGELES (AFP): For screenwriter Carol Mendelsohn, the most important thing is an “emotional hook” that keeps curious viewers coming back. In her case, they have been coming back for 14 years to the popular “CSI” TV crime series, which has even survived the departure of its lead actor in its ninth season. “All writers feel your project is like a child in a sense and you feel proud,” the 61-year-old, who is also the show’s executive producer, told AFP in an interview.
