LOS ANGELES, Aug. 28 (UPI) — Comedian Betty White is set to guest star on Fox’s long-running procedural crime drama-comedy Bones.
According to TVLine, White will play Dr. Beth Mayer, an accomplished squintern who is brought in to assist in a murder linked to fantasy football – which just happens to be one of her many areas of expertise. With a half century of work under her belt, White’s Mayer is considered the most experienced forensic anthropologist in the world, possible leading to a rivalry with Deschanel’s Brennan.

Betty White’s episode is scheduled to air in late October. Bones returns for its 11th season on Oct. 1.
