'Family Ties' Star Meredith Baxter to Join CBS's YOUNG & THE RESTLESS
The actress will first appear in the September 8th episode, portraying 'Maureen'. A CBS rep describes the character as "charming, intelligent, middle-class woman who has always aspired to a more privileged life than she's had. She appears kind and sympathetic, but can be quite manipulative. She is skilled at getting people to do the things she wants them to do by making them think it's their idea! When not hitting the sauce with her new drinking-buddy, Nikki, Maureen will be crossing with several key players on the Y&R canvas."
Best known for her role as Elyse Keaton in the 1980's sitcom Family Ties, Baxter has received two Emmy nominaitons from the 1970's series 'Family' as well as a nod for her role in the 1992 movie A Woman Scorned: The Betty Broderick Story.
Her other TV appearances include Family Guy, Switched at Birth, The Neighbors, Glee and Finding Carter.
