"The set of CSI: Miami just happens to be very filthy in terms of its jokes, and I made a joke and everyone sort of stopped and looked at me," Procter tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "I was like, 'OK. I'm in a new place. That is not an appropriate joke. I apologize.'"
After 10 years hunting for bad guys as Det. Calleigh Duquesne on CSI: Miami, Procter is back on the small screen on the USA series (Tuesdays at 10/9c) as Neal (Matt Bomer) and Peter's new boss, Assistant Special Agent in Charge Amanda Callaway. Hired to fill the void left by recently ousted leader, Reese Hughes (James Rebhorn), Amanda's introduction will also be a bit awkward. "I think everyone is fairly cautious of her," Procter says. "Amanda gives this speech about joining and wanting to be a part of a team but her ambition shows through."
Fortunately — or in this case, maybe not — Amanda already knows one member of the team. "The relationship between her and Peter is more complicated because they seem to have a little bit of history," she says. "She has been climbing the ladder very quickly and the last post she was in, she was not in it long. And all her posts were all very similar to what [Peter's] been doing."
