Jessica Walter to Join Jaime Pressly in TV Land's JENNIFER FALLS
ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT's Jessica Walter is headed to TV Land.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Walter has signed on for the network's upcoming pilot JENNIFER FALLS, starring Emmy-winning actress Jaime Pressly.
JENNIFER FALLS, from THE WONDER YEARS' Matthew Carlson, revolves around a career woman and mother (Pressly) who must move back in with her own mom after being let go from her high-powered, six-figure salary job. With her teenage daughter in tow, Jennifer has to face her new life, trying to reconnect with old friends in her hometown and making ends meet as a waitress in her brother's bar.
Walter will take on the role of "Jennifer's mother, described as a charming, narcissistic psychotherapist with boundary issues who's warm and welcoming to her daughter -- but maybe too welcoming."
Missi Pyle also co-stars.
