Out CSI executive producer Ann Donahue and fellow bigwig Carol Mendelsohn have signed on for at least four more seasons of Jerry Bruckheimer's forensic franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The deals are reportedly in the eight-figure range, making the duo the highest-paid female writer-producers in drama-series TV. Under the contract, Donahue and Mendelsohn will stay on as executive producers of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and CSI: Miami while also developing new projects, including an anticipated third CSI series.
"As great as each episode was in CSI Las Vegas and Miami last year, we are seeing they have elevated the show even higher--and we didn't think that was possible--for this season," CBS entertainment president Nancy Tellem told the Reporter. "[Donahue and Mendelsohn] are the absolute top producers in television today."
