Ted Danson's daughter Kate Danson is on the case at CSI.
CBS has announced that the actress will guest star in the April 3 episode of her father's long-running hit. She'll play lawyer Jill McDermott in the installment where CSI's crack team of investigators go up against a serial killer. The opportunity to face off against night-shift supervisor D.B. Russell, played by the elder Danson, was a kick for her.
"The CSI team have done something wrong," Kate told WENN. "So I come pretty hard at my dad and dig into him, which was a lot of fun to play. I was really fortunate to get to work with him on CSI. It was really great going head to head with him."
Kate, who's previously guest-starred on TNT's Raising the Bar and appeared in Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, is currently slated to appear in a single episode, though there's reportedly a possibility the role could be upgraded to recurring.
Sounds like a promising idea, considering Ted recently re-upped for two more seasons of CSI.
