Actress Jaime Pressly, best known for winning an Emmy for her role as Joy on My Name is Earl, has landed the lead role on TV Land’s new pilot Jennifer Falls.
Pressly will play the lead character, Jennifer Doyle, a career woman and mother, 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.
The pilot is written, created and executive produced by Matthew Carlson (The Wonder Years, Malcolm in the Middle), with Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis (Reba, The Exes) also serving as executive producers.
TV Land has not announced when the show will premiere, but we’ll keep you posted!
