NBC’s Animal Practice is about to reveal the underlying cause of its lead character’s hellacious disposition: Annie Potts!
TVLine has learned exclusively that the Designing Woman vet has been cast as Virginia, the intractable mother of Justin Kirk’s grumpy veterinarian, George.
The moneyed Virginia is described as snobbish, racist, and utterly self-absorbed. But much like her son, deep down she has something resembling a heart.
Potts last appeared in ABC’s short-lived soap GCB.
Animal Practice is set to make its regular time period debut on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 8/7c.
