Tony Award-winning actress Marissa Jaret Winokur (Broadway's "Hairspray") is joining the cast of TV Land's original comedy, RETIRED AT 35 when the series returns for its second season tonight, June 26 at 10pm ET/PT.
In RETIRED AT 35, after 37 years of marriage, Alan Robbins (Segal, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?") and his wife Elaine (Walter, "Arrested Development") are expected to cruise into retirement and live out their days happily ever after. However, they get an unexpected surprise when their uptight and overworked son David (McClain, "24"), sick of the NYC rat race, decides to move in with them in their active-adult community. David finds himself dealing with his overzealous parents as well as his sister Amy (Winokur), who, while successful in in business, has made less than impressive choices in her love life.
Winokur is best known for her performance as Tracy Turnblad in the highly successful Broadway musical adaptation of John Waters' film Hairspray, as well as her work on the Pamela Anderson sitcom Stacked. Some of her other TV Credits include Curb Your Enthusiasm, Moesha, The StEve Harvey Show, Just Shoot Me!, Felicity, and Dharma & Greg.
She was a contestant on the popular reality competition series Dancing With the Stars and went on to host the similar Dance Your Ass Off. She most recently reprised her Hairspray role in the 2011 Hollywood Bowl production.
