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.
