CSI is about to get Awkward.

Nikki DeLoach is dropping by CBS' long-running procedural, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively. She will guest star in the 20th episode of the current 13th season, scheduled to air May 1.

In the episode titled "Fearless," a body is found in the "sacred mud bath" at a Force of Mind seminar, which forces the CSI team to sift through some byzantine motives to catch a killer.

DeLoach will play Heather, a Type-A personality who is ambitious, tightly-wound and a "company ass-kisser." She attends a corporate training at a wilderness retreat, and when her fellow team member is found dead, she becomes a prime suspect.

Repped by APA and Medavoy Management, DeLoach currently stars in MTV's Awkward as Lacey Hamilton.
