Tracey Ullman Boards CBS Comedy Pilot GOOD SESSION
Just coming off her guest starring stint on CBS' HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, Tracey Ullman is sticking with the network.
'SESSION' follows "a happy couple, Joel (Roday) and Lindsay (TBD), who go to a therapist to help them decide if they should have a baby but quickly discover they have more to discuss. Ullman will play Ellen, the astute, straightforward therapist who uses her own brand of insight and humor to inspire the couples she helps to tell the truth."
Ullman's early appearances were on British TV sketch comedy shows A Kick Up the Eighties (with Rik Mayall and Miriam Margolyes) and Three of a Kind (with Lenny Henry and David Copperfield). She also appeared as Candice Valentine in Girls On Top with Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders.
Along with her television work, Ullman has featured in many films throughout her career. After the cancellation of The Tracey Ullman Show in 1990, she made her starring debut alongside Kevin Kline, River Phoenix and Joan Plowright in I Love You To Death. Ullman has also appeared in Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Nancy Savoca's Household Saints, 'Bullets Over Broadway', Small Time Crooks, A Dirty Shame, and Tim Burton's Corpse Bride. She had a small role in Paul McCartney's film Give My Regards to Broad Street.
