In addition, she starred in David E. Kelley's detective drama series "Snoops." Her longform credits include the telefilms "Legalese" and "Miss Rose White" and the CBS miniseries "Sinatra."

An accomplished stage actress, Gershon starred as Sally Bowles in Sam Mendes's revival of "Cabaret." She has also earned applause for her work in such plays as "Camille," "The Substance of Fire," "Nanawatai" and "The Vagina Monologues."
