According to Kate Danson, she plays a lawyer who goes up against the CSI team when they’ve made a misstep. A Hollywood Gossip report stated that the incident occurs after a body is found in a rainforest and the team goes to a serial killer’s hideout.

“I was really fortunate to get to work with him on CSI,” she told WENN, “It was so much fun. We never worked together like that. We did a short film together but nothing professional until now, so it was really great going head to head with him… I come pretty hard at my dad and dig into him, which was a lot of fun to play.”

Her episode will air April 3, the actress said.

“I'm hoping it will be a recurring character,” she said.

As previously reported, “CSI” was recently renewed by its network, CBS, for another season and Danson is signed on for another two years. 

Kate Danson is credited as appearing in the 1989 movie “Cousins,” which starred her father as a wedding guest named Larry and for which Kate Danson is cryptically credited as “Wedding Killer Listener.” The actress has also guested on shows such as the 2008 TV series “Raising the Bar” and the show “The Protector” as well as the 2010 short film “The Dinner Party.” She appeared with her stepmother, actress Mary Steenburgen, in a 2011 comedy short titled “Keepin’ It Real Estate” and stars in a short film titled “Three Forms of Insomnia.”

Danson joined “CSI” in 2011 and stars as D.B. Russell, a night shift supervisor. The actor was nominated for and won multiple awards for his role as bar owner Sam Malone on the TV series “Cheers” and for his guest turn on the FX series “Damages,” respectively.
