'Cold Case' cop goes cruisin' - 21st July 2008
When her hit CBS series “Cold Case” shut down production during the Hollywood writers strike, star Kathryn Morris took a family road trip – in her dressing room.
“I’ve got a big old motor home that I use as my dressing room, she tells The Post. “It is a 38 foot home on wheels with a king size bed and three TVs. So I drove it around with my family and my friends, through the mountains and up to Mammoth.”
Of course the mid-winter had a few minor complications.
“Apparently you can only refill the propane in a motor home at certain times of day and there is only one refill guy every 100 miles,” she says.
“One night we had the whole family and we were going to go for a big Italian dinner 40 miles away because it was near the propane place so we decided to make it a family outing. There were like 9 people in the motor home and it turns out we just missed the propane guy by an hour. We were stranded!
“That night, we slept with the space heater plugged in. And here’s another tip: You cannot use the coffeemaker and the hair dryer at the same time.”
Morris says she plans to take the mobile residence with her whenever the show comes to an end: “If I never work again and everybody thinks I am Lilly Rush, there is nothing wrong with cruisin’ around the United States in a motor home.” - Sean Daly

Morris' Hotplate Productions Sells Pilot
PTR Senior Staff Writer
When you have Jerry Bruckheimer as a mentor, chances are you're going to become a pretty good producer yourself.
Cold Case star (and PTR Fave) Kathryn Morris, who landed a production company deal last year with Warner Brothers, has sold her first series pilot under her Hotplate Productions brand. It's based on Harry Hunsicker's popular Crosshairs novel.
And, just so this doesn't come as a shocker to Cold Case fans who may be apt to think "OMG! She's leaving the show to go produce stuff!!!!" ... relax. Morris has repeatedly mentioned in past interviews that she's interested in delving into other realms besides acting, not abandoning it altogether. She remains steadfastly committed to the CC team, but is nicely on her way spreading her wings into the producing realm.
Hollywood Exclusive by Marilyn Beck & Stacy Jenel Smith
NEW ADVENTURES: Kathryn Morris of "Cold Case" proudly reports that her fledgling Hotplate Productions outfit has sold a series pilot based on Harry Hunsicker's popular "Crosshairs" novel "through Warner Bros. It's a male-driven P.I. show. The main character is a heroic stud, a cool guy that I'm sure would live down the street from Lily Rush," she says, referring to her series character.
The beautiful blond leading lady says she's not planning to act in the prospective show — or any of the projects she's developing — "because of my commitment to 'Cold Case.' But I do have a cameo in a little film that's about to come out — 'Assassination of a High School President.' I play a naughty nurse in that. It was fun."
Knowing all too well the vicissitudes of an acting career — particularly for a woman in her late 30s — Morris has been determined to branch out into producing. She tells us, "I basically had a mentor in Jerry Bruckheimer, teaching me a formula of how to make a good television show from the script through crew, the casting — all the elements. That's why Jerry's shows look like no other in television," including "Cold Case," of course.
We do love Kathryn, but let's hope it's not too formulaic. Cold Case returns for its sixth season September 28th.
