Ted Danson's daughter, Kate Danson, will appear on an episode of "CSI" with her dad this season. She will guest-star on the April 3 episode of the CBS show, playing lawyer Jill McDermott.

In the episode, the investigators of "CSI" find a body in a forest reserve. They later discover evidence of a serial killer and his creepy lair of death. Jill McDermott ends up facing off against D.B. Russell (Danson) as part of the case.

Talking to WENN, Kate Danson described her role. "I play a lawyer who knows she's in the right and the CSI team have done something wrong. So I come pretty hard at my dad and dig into him, which was a lot of fun to play," Danson said. "I was really fortunate to get to work with him on 'CSI.' It was so much fun. We never worked together like that... So it was really great going head to head with him."

As announced by the network earlier in the week, the younger Danson has what is currently a single-episode guest-starring spot. There is a possibility that the role could become recurring.
