Washington: Burlesque beauty Dita Von Teese is all set to make her small screen debut.

She is performing her signature sultry champagne glass dance on the January 20 episode "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."

“It’s great because it’s a big episode, and I play my very good friend Eric Szmanda’s love interest,” Fox News quoted Von Teese as telling BlackBook magazine.

“Originally, I was just going to make a small cameo of some kind, but now I play three different characters! It’s a great challenge for me, much different than creating and performing burlesque shows."

Her ‘CSI’ co-stars were already familiar with Von Teese``s work.
"Most of the cast and crew have seen my burlesque show, and they’re really a great team, and are all very encouraging. I couldn’t ask for a better television debut, especially on such a great show, and there’s a moment where viewers get to see a glimpse of my actual burlesque show,” she said.
