Great article, "Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, The Top Gun Of Prime Time", with information that you can use in your own fiction and nonfiction:
He thinks his shows plug into a zeitgeist for "process, and I love process. I love being put in a place I know nothing about and showing how it actually works." Before the "CSIs," Bruckheimer says, he would watch a crime drama and often think "this is BS," so he wanted to show how a crime would be actually solved -- albeit in 47 minutes.
We all want to know how things work. Satisfy your readers' curiosity.
