CSI: Miami follows the same set up as other CSI series. Central to a team of experts that are trying to solve murders and other crimes on the basis of forensic evidence.CSI: Miami often initially focused on a single case per episode. In later seasons that were usually two cases per episode.


CSI: Miami is mainly included in the United States. Filming will take place in indoor filmed at Raleigh Manhattan Studios in Manhattan BeachCalifornia. Some outdoor scenes, especially those on beaches, are filmed at Long Beach. Naples district of Manhattan Beach is also a popular film location, because the environment there is very similar to that of the real Miami.

The building that in the series should continue for the lab of the CSI is actually the Federal Aviation Administration Federal Credit Union headquarters in Hawthorne.

CSI: Miami is known for its Assembly. The images are accurate shot and the joystick is installed with the utmost precision. Often uses all kinds of stock footage from the city of Miami. Thus, speed boats, highways, jet-skis and helicopters frequently. The generic image is hardly back by the seasons changed.

Also is often used by pop music. So include Kings of LeonFranz Ferdinand and the Foo Fighters ever discussed.
