On November 1, the production of CSI: New York
gathered at Los Angeles’ Edison club to celebrate the series’ 100th episode. In fact, Gary Sinise
, Melina Kanakaredes
, Eddie Cahill
, Carmine Giovinazzo
and Anna Belknap
were all on hand to celebrate the milestone, which fans will get to see on November 19, when it airs on CBS.
"We've been on the air for a long time, and people still like us," producer Jerry Bruckheimer told Entertainment Tonight. "That's a good thing."
"A hundred episodes is a milestone in any television series," Gary Sinise, who first appeared on television with CSI: New York
, said. "So I'm glad we made it here. We're looking forward to a hundred more."
Kanakaredes, who plays Stella Bonasera on the series, applauds the writers and the production crew who have worked hard to make the show the success it is today. She said, "We're just so happy to have an amazing group of people to work with every day and it's still fun to go to work. I'm so excited that people love the show."
In fact, Kanakaredes told OK! Magazine that one of her favorite episodes include the one in which her character “shot her boyfriend. It was tense and memorable. I’ll never forget the fear and the intensity of the whole experience and I don’t think she’s quite gotten over that yet, either…she hasn’t had a real relationship since.”
She also credits New York City for being a good backdrop in which they tell their stories. She explained, "I also like to think that New York is our biggest star. It's an incredible city, and we're so fortunate to be able to pull from so much.”
The 100th episode will also feature quite a number of guest stars including American Idol
alum Chris Daughtry
, rapper Nelly and NFL legend Marshall Faulk.
Meanwhile, fans can catch tonight’s episode of CSI: New York
