*Former “CSI: Miami” star Khandi Alexander will guest-star on the upcoming first season of USA’s “Common Law,” the freshman dramedy co-starring Michael Ealy.

Premiering Friday, May 11 at 10/9c,“Common Law” tells the story of Travis Marks (Ealy) and Wes Mitchell (Warren Kole), two sharp LAPD detectives whose partnership becomes so strained that Captain Mike Sutton (Jack McGee) sends them to see  couples therapist Dr. Ryan (Sonya Walger).

Alexander will play Captain Sutton’s long-suffering wife Helen, who joins her husband and his detectives in a group session, reports TV Guide. In fact, Sutton sends Wes and Travis to Dr. Ryan because she was able to work wonders for him and his wife.

Perhaps best known for her role as Dr. Alexx Woods on CSI: Miami, Alexander’s other small-screen credits include roles on “ER,” “NewsRadio” and, most recently, ABC’s “Body of Proof.” She currently stars on HBO’s “Treme.”
