COMMUNITY's Yvette Nicole Brown to Guest Star on WELCOME TO THE FAMILY
Yvette Nicole Brown is taking a quick break from Greendale Community College.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the COMMUNITY star is set to guest on NBC's freshman comedy WELCOME TO THE FAMILY.
Brown's guest role is set for the sixth episode. She'll take on the role of "Mrs. Peck, the Yoder family's annoyingly overbearing and strong next-door neighbor. Constantly bickering with Dan (O'Malley) about everything going on at the Yoder house, Mrs. Peck is well-versed in local laws and city ordinances. Her current annoyance is the "eye-sore" RV parked in the Yoders' driveway."
In the series, Dan Yoder (Mike O'Malley, "Glee," "My Name Is Earl") and wife, Caroline (Mary McCormack, "In Plain Sight," "The West Wing"), think they finally have it made. Their daughter, Molly (Ella Rae Peck, "Deception," "Gossip Girl") - not the most diligent of students - has managed to graduate from high school and has been accepted to college. The proud parents are looking forward to an empty nest and are breathing a heavy sigh of relief.
Across town, Molly's secret boyfriend, Junior Hernandez (Joseph Haro, "Glee," "Awkward"), is graduating from his high school with top honors and has plans to go to Stanford. Parents Miguel (Ricardo A. Chavira, "Desperate Housewives") and Lisette (Justina Machado, "Six Feet Under," "ER"), who also have a younger son, Demetrio (Fabrizio Guido, "World War Z"), are bursting with pride. Everything seems like it is falling into place for them, but unbeknownst to both families, Molly and Junior are about to become parents themselves.
Once the teens break the big news, these two very different families are thrown together, which goes anything but smoothly... and the news that Molly and Junior are engaged to be married doesn't exactly make things better.
Dan and Miguel have the most difficult time adjusting to their new situation (and each other), while Caroline and Lisette take a softer approach to getting to know one another. When each of the parents realizes the kids are serious about making a life together, the adults exhale and begin to come to terms with this new blended family. Clearly, it will take understanding, humor, love and patience to make it all work.
