Danson’s daughter a partner in crime
Ted Danson teams up with his actress daughter Kate on American television when she plays a lawyer in an upcoming episode of his hit crime show CSI. Father and daughter worked on a short film together some years ago, but they’ve never teamed up on TV – until now. Kate Danson (pictured) says it was a lot of fun to work with her dad. ‘‘It was really great going head to head with him,’’ she says. ‘‘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,’’ she says. The episode airs in the US next week. CSI – one of the most popular shows around the world – has just been picked up for a 14th season.
