Criminal Minds: Here is a link to an article about "Zoe's Reprise" being set in Cleveland. "Zoe's Reprise" stars Joe Mantegna, Thomas Gibson, Paget Brewster, Shemar Moore, A.J. Cook, Matthew Gray Gubler, Kirsten Vangsness and was written by Oanh Ly.

"In the Cleveland-centric "Criminal Minds'' episode, the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit of ace profilers, led by David Rossi (Joe Mantegna) and Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson), is on the trail of a copycat serial killer. And this is the plot point that will just kill you: the sly slayer is employing the gruesome techniques used by famous murderers.

Titled "Zoe's Reprise'' and written by series story editor Oanh Ly, the episode features guest stars Amy Davidson (as Zoe).

Charles S. Carroll, a producer on the crime drama in its fourth season, is in the director's chair for this episode. "Criminal Minds'' currently ranks No. 10 among all network shows. The only dramas with more viewers this season are three other CBS crime shows: "C.S.I.,'' "NCIS'' and "The Mentalist.''

To make their version of Cleveland more authentic, the producers of "Criminal Minds'' sought some positive direction from Positively Cleveland, the Convention and Visitors Bureau of Greater Cleveland. The production office was sent posters, Cleveland Plus stickers and official visitors guides, said Samantha Fryberger, Positively Cleveland's director of communications."
