More 'Cold' Cash for Kathryn Morris
'Case' star gets raise, production deal
Kathryn Morris, who plays Philadelphia P.D. Detective Lilly Rush on the show, is getting a raise for the coming season. She'll earn between $180,000 and $190,000 per episode in 2007-08, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Her new deal also includes a production element. She'll set up a company at Warner Bros. TV, which produces "Cold Case" with Jerry Bruckheimer TV and CBS Paramount. The studio will also have the first crack at any projects Morris' company develops.
"Cold Case" begins its fifth season on Sunday, Sept. 23. Last year the series, which features Rush and a team of detectives re-opening old cases, averaged just over 14 million viewers a week -- ranking it among the top 20 shows on network TV -- and a 3.7 rating in the key adults 18-49 demographic.
The series also goes into syndication on TNT in the fall.
Morris' credits also include the feature films "Resurrecting the Champ," which opens this weekend, "Minority Report" and "Mindhunters." She's also been cast in a comedy called "The Sophomore," which stars Bruce Willis.
