Anthony Zuiker will continue working on current projects as he develops new ones for Paramount Network Television.

CSI mastermind Anthony Zuiker has inked a rich production pact with Paramount Network Television.

The deal is said to be valued in the eight-figure range, though some of that includes advances on Zuiker's share of future syndication profits from the three CSI series.

It calls for him to develop new projects for the studio as well as continue as executive producer of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and its spin-offs, CSI: Miami and CSI: NY.

Zuiker became an overnight industry sensation in 2000 when CSI: Crime Scene Investigation exploded out of the gate. In 2002, the show spawned the spin-off CSI: Miami, while CSI: NY arrived in fall 2004. As of last season, Zuiker has focused his attention on his work as show-runner of CSI: NY.

The original CSI was Zuiker's first stab at writing a TV pilot. Before that, he had only a handful of feature screenwriting credits to his name.
"In that original pilot, we basically shot what he wrote," said CBS chief executive Leslie Moonves.
