Ted Danson’s daughter Kate will appear on an episode of her father’s show “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” this April.

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.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”
