The series will feature the automaker’s Torrent SUV in segments that run from 40 seconds to one minute in length, and appear during an episode of “CSI: Miami,” “Criminal Minds” and “Cold Case,” as well as online and made available for cellphones. A Torrent commercial will play immediately after each episode. | James Bond, to be played by Daniel Craig, will drive Aston Martin’s new DBS in “Casino Royale,” which is slated to hit theaters in November.
