Darkly dreaming

One step closer to a Dexter/CSI: Miami crossover episode. Soak that in...
As the writers strike enters its second month with no end in sight, repurposing cable series on broadcast networks is becoming a reality. CBS Corp. president and CEO Leslie Moonves said Tuesday that CBS plans to repurpose some Showtime series, including the breakout hit "Dexter."
"'Dexter' is probably the first one to go on — with some edits," Moonves told reporters at the annual UBS Global Media & Communications Conference in New York.
"It fits with our crime shows."

The edgy, offbeat "Dexter," which has become a critical and ratings success for Showtime, stars Michael C. Hall as a Miami police forensics expert who moonlights as a vigilante serial killer.

CBS, of course, is the leader in the forensic crime drama genre with the "CSI" franchise.

Moonves didn't specify when "Dexter" would launch on CBS beyond saying it should come "in the near future."
