GLEE's Jane Lynch Joins Cast of NBC Comedy Pilot RELATIVELY HAPPY
Variety reports that Jane Lynch has joined the cast of NBC's multi-camera comedy pilot RELATIVELY HAPPY. The GLEE alum will portray Bobbi Martin, described as "a fast-living, Scotch-drinking, three-piece-suit-wearing, womanizing divorce attorney." The role was originally written for a man until writers Max Mutchnick and Jeff Astrof realized Lynch was the ideal actor to take on the part. James Burrows will direct.
According to the site, the project will center on "adult siblings Henry and Heather (Genevieve Angelson) who wind up living together for the first time since they were kids, after one of them suffers a big loss. They become each other's wingman, shoulder to cry on, best friend and punching bag as they navigate love, loss and work while helping to get each other "un-stuck.""
Lynch portrayed Sue Sylvester on FOX's long-running musical dramedy GLEE. She also serves as host of NBC's "Hollywood Game Night," and will soon be seen in the role of Janet Reno in Discovery's miniseries "Manhunt". The actress made her Broadway debut as Miss Hannigan in the Broadway revival of ANNIE.
