Kyle MacLachlan Joins Cast of CAROL'S SECOND ACT

Former Twin Peaks star Kyle MacLachlan will star opposite Patricia Heaton in CBS comedy pilot Carol's Second Act, according to Deadline.

The series hails from Trophy Wife creators Emily Halpern and Sarah Haskins, Aaron Kaplan's Kapital Entertainment, Heaton and David Hunt's FourBoys Entertainment and CBS TV Studios.

Carol's Second Act centers on Carol Chambers (Heaton), who after raising her two children and retiring from teaching, embarks on a unique second act: She's going to become a doctor.

MacLachlan will play Dr. Frost. Handsome, affable and accomplished, he is the Senior Attending Physician on the ward (as well as the Department Chair) and thinks he's funnier than he is. Considerably more empathetic than Dr. Maya (Ito Aghayere), Dr. Frost takes an immediate shine to Carol. Bonnie Dennison also co-stars.

MacLachlan is best known for his playing Agent Dale Cooper in David Lynch's Twin Peaks series. He could be seen recently in films such as Steven Soderbergh's Netflix feature High Flying Birds and Giant Little Ones.
