'Life Unexpected' Actress Boards TBS' 'Your Family or Mine'
TBS' Your Family or Mine is filling out its cast.
Life Unexpected and Men in Trees alum Cynthia Stevenson has boarded the upcoming comedy series for a main role, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Your Family or Mine, penned by Ground Floor co-creator and Friends alum Greg Malins, centers on young married couple Oliver (Kyle Howard) and Kelli (Kat Foster), who are living proof of the adage, "When you marry someone, you don't just marry them, you marry their whole family." The series will alternate episodes, focusing on Oliver and Kelli's respective families.
Stevenson will play Jan Durnin, the matriarch of the Durnin family and Kelli's mother. She loves her eccentric husband, Gil (Ed Begley Jr.), and her three daughters, but wishes two of them didn't still live at home. She is a great cook, easy to tear up and loves her grandchildren more than anything.
Richard Dreyfuss and JoBeth Williams also star. Malins will pen the Sony Pictures Television script and executive produce alongside FanFare's Jamie Tarses. Gail Mancuso will direct the pilot. Your Family or Mine will premiere in 2015.
Stevenson is repped by TalentWorks and Pop Art Management. She has also appeared in Scandal, Private Practice, Grey's Anatomy, Surviving Suburbia, Dead Like Me and The L Word.
