'Community' Star to Guest on NBC's 'Welcome to the Family' (Exclusive)
A Community star is teeing up against Mike O'Malley.
Yvette Nicole Brown has joined freshman comedy Welcome to the Family in an adversarial role, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
Appearing in the sixth episode titled "Junior Takes a Stand," Brown will play Mrs. Peck, the Yoder family's annoyingly overbearing and strong next-door neighbor. Constantly bickering with Dan (O'Malley) about everything going on at the Yoder house, Mrs. Peck is well-versed in local laws and city ordinances. Her current annoyance is the "eye-sore" RV parked in the Yoders' driveway.
Brown films her episode this week.
She joins fellow guest star Eva Longoria, who reunites with former Desperate Housewives co-star Ricardo A. Chavira in the Oct. 17 episode. Both Community and Welcome to the Family hail from Sony Pictures Television.
Brown is repped by KMR Talent.
Welcome to the Family airs Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. on NBC. Community does not have an official return date set.
