It was announced on 20 August 2014 that Bow Wow (also Shad Moss) was going to star in CSI: Cyber. Hollywood Reporter used the term, "CSI: Cyber is going hip-hop".[1] When speaking to Digital Spy, it was said, "Bow Wow is a gifted young actor who will have the responsibility, through his character, to set an example for young people who watch the show to 'do what's right' even when you know 'nothing but wrong."[2] It was also said "It will be a redemption story and a cautionary tale all wrapped into one. The role of Nelson required someone with deep acting chops and off-the-charts smarts. Shad Moss is a unique talent that possesses both."[2]

When speaking about his character Shad Moss said that Brody was "savvy, young, had swag... a lot of swag".[3]


Brody was formerly a black hat hacker, named "Qu35t", who got into the trouble with the law. FBI was close to throwing the book at him, until the judge made him work with them. Either he works with the FBI cyber division or he goes to jail for five years. Brody is trying to work hard to earn his redemption.


In "Kidnapping 2.0", Brody joins the team and assists in stopping a baby-trafficking ring.
In "CMND/Crash", Brody finds it hard to separate his old life and relationships while having to begin a new life as an FBI Agent.
In "Fire Code", Brody discovered someone was using code he created in his illegal hacking days to create fires.
In "Family Secrets", Brody is seen in the opening scene spying on Avery but it is later discovered that he found out that someone was stalking Avery. Brody was also beaten up by the person stalking Avery and was found by Raven Ramirez (Hayley Kiyoko).
In "Why-Fi" it is implied that Brody and Raven are secretly dating as they were shown making out in the shower.


A review of episode "Fire Code" said that Brody was finding the road to hell was paved with good intentions.[4]

In a review of the episode "Why-Fi", the reviewer commented on the implication of Brody and Raven dating by saying "I'm shocked because even though Nelson harbored feelings for Raven in the first season, he has never acted on these feelings until now so it was a little in your face on the writer's part to see this relationship take place"[5]
