Released by Miss TV Girl Sela Ward joins the cast of CSI: NY as an experienced investigator from Washington, D.C., whose work is driven by her empathy for the victim. Ward is stepping in after the surprise exit of Melina Kanakaredes.
"I am thrilled to be working with Gary and this terrific group of people," the Emmy-winning actress says. "I'm a huge fan."
Ward will make her first appearance in the season premiere when the show moves to Fridays at 9:00 PM this fall.
